I don't really know the value of the J C Higgins 12 gauge shotgun as a colectable but I do know that Sears is offering $50 gift certificates for the return of the bolt to their offices. Apparently there was a voluntary recall of the bolt receiver and Sears will pay for the bolt to make the gun inoperable. CONTACT: Peggy Palter of Sears, 847-286-8309 Not all JC Higgins shotguns are affected by the recall. And the compensation is $160. * The shotguns were sold in Sears stores and through its catalog as the J.C. Higgins Bolt Action 12-Gauge Model 10 Shotgun during the 1950s. It was carried under a number of product numbers: 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16, 583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. The product model number is engraved on the barrel of the shotgun. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the shotgun. Call 800-817-9165 for identification verification and instructions on return procedures. If your shotgun is not one of these, it's value is about $75 to $125, depending on condition.
Retail tops out at $120.
