The JC Higgins Model 45 was made by Marlin and is basically the same gun as the Model 336. Manuals are availabe from Marlin Firearms. The JC Higgins Model 66 was made by High Standard and is out of production. I have a manual scanned, and can email it to you. email@example.com
Bobsgunshop.com has parts for all rifles/shotguns and more.
i also have one of these sitting in front of me. they are worth around 150-200 dollars. mine is from the circa-1947 era. The Model 60 first appeared in the Sears Catalogs in the Fall/Winter 1955 catalog and the Modle 66 which superceded the model 60 first appeared in the Fall /Winter 1958 catalog. The Model 66 should have an assembly date code on the barrel.
No. The Model 66 does not have user-interchangeable barrels. Your existing gun could be modified by shortening the barrel, adapting for choke tubes and installing rifle sights. firstname.lastname@example.org
probably introduced around 1957
It's 66 years old (1942)
High Standard between 1955 and 1958, after that year they began selling the newer model 66.
The model 11 is a bolt action clip, the model 12 is a bolt action magazine tube, and the model 66 is a autoloader (also a magazine tube). The 11 and 12 were made from 62-65 the 66 was made from 59-89.
THAT DEPENDS ON WHO IS BUYING IT.
In Excellent condition $200-250 It is a High Standard model actualy.
High Standard, because High Standard was actually owned by Sears at the time, and JC Higgins was high executive at Sears that the series was named for. High Standard did not start putting out weapons in its own name until 1962. The model 66 was made until 1961. The 583.XXX beginning indicates made by High Standard. The last three numbers do not indicate year made, but which lot it came from, and the lot indicates year made. Mine reads one side - JC Higgins Model 66 Sears, Roebuck and Co. 583.608. and other side says Model 66 12 GA.
