I have one which is in very good shape. I have never shot the thing as it belonged to my grandfathers cousin and was handed down to me. there was a recall on some of the models but it does not seem that this model was affected. Late 1945 through perhaps 1948.
It is a Stevens Model 250A, made by them for Sears, using the Sears J.C. Higgins trade name.
