J C Higgins Shotgun
  • The JC Higgins model 20 was manufactured by High Standard firearms company. In Arizona this shotgun,in in good to very good shape, will sell for $150.
  • I bought one from an ol'timer in PA for 50 dollars in fair but operational condition. Same Exact model and stampings.
  • About 125 to 200.00 dollars depending on condition and series
  • I have one, my father's Dad bought it new in the fifties in Kansas and he commenced to trash it by leaving it in the bed of a truck. Around 1980, my grandfather and I (in Kansas), re-blued it and refinished the wood. Bottom line, as a firearm, it's value is in it's usefulness. I use mine to shoot trap on days after my 12 ga. left me hurting, or when I want to try harder with less balls. My recommendation is to expect no cash value, either use it for historical value or bolt on a recoil supressor pad to make it sighteable, then shoot that dang thing. Wish I could tell you it was worth more, but Sears and Roebuck was a staple in this country back then, and this arm is kinda like a roll of toilet paper. No one will buy it from you, and you may not like it, but when you need it, it works one hell of a lot better than a corn cob or a page out of the wish book (Sears & Roebuck catalog, as toilet paper, a staple of many an outhouse in it's day). Shoot it, it's better than going to work (and cheap).

The value of the 410 Sears and Roebuck JC Higgins Model 101 shotgun varies greatly with its condition. In excellent condition the gun retails for about 250 dollars or so.

Without a model number and the condition of the gun, impossible to answer.
