I got a copy of Gun Digest and it led me in the direction i needed to obtain information like that for sears and Iver Johnson. (it showed me other books/sources that worked, sorry can't remember exact names.) To estimate the value of any "store-brand" shotgun like JC Higgins, Ranger, Revelation, etc, go to Wal Mart. Find the least expensive gun of the same type. If yours is worn but fully functional, it is worth about 1/2 to 2/3 as much. If it looks and works just as good as the new one, it is worth about 2/3 - 3/4.
The Sears 200 series = Winchester 1200. Parts should be available from e-gunparts.com if you can't find them locally.
Shotguns sold by Sears through years were made by many different manufacturers. It is very difficult to determine value because of the many variables.
no they do not

Your shotgun is likely a Stevens Model 940, made by them for Sears. This was made from 1961-1970. Value is about $100-$125, depending on condition. Depsite relatively low price, these were good "utility" grade shotguns.
Made for Sears by High Standard in the early 1950's. Bolt-action 12ga shotgun, also known as the High Standard Model 10. These guns were subject to a recall by Sears where they would pay $160 plus shipping for just the bolt; who knows how many of these shotguns are laying around there missing bolts.... Resale value is very minimal, and revolves mostly around selling the bolt back to Sears. Recent ownership changes at Sears has reduced the recall amount considerably, so retail value of these particular shotguns have suffered. email@example.com
I think Sears did a long time ago....
WWhite Powder Wonders was a trade name and were manufactured by Stevens. The value would be that of a shooter. Comparable to the value of other shooters made for western Auto and Sears White Powder Wonder: Trade name used by Albert Aubrey of Meriden, Connecticut on shotguns made for the Sears, Roebuck and Company of Chicago. http://www.hoosiergunworks.com/catalog/cross_reference.html
Its a Sears branded Mossberg 500.
Along with several other companies- yes.
The JC Higgins 583.24 is a bolt-action shotgun made by High Standard for Sears in 1954/1955. It should have an adjustable choke. Value on bolt-action shotguns is minimal, around $100-$125.
Sears sold imported Zoli shotguns as well as private branded Winchester 101 shotguns. Would need to know the model number off of the barrel.
JC Higgins Model 20 shotguns sell from $100-$175. firstname.lastname@example.org
Most sears shotguns are valued between 100-250 dollars depending on overall condition.
Tell us a little more. Sears sold a lot of different shotguns and a serial number will not identify it.
Sears stopped selling firearms in 1988. Sears never made firearms, they contracted other gun companies to make guns for them under the Sears brand name.
J.C.Higgins was a trademark used on Sears and Roebuck rifles and shotguns manufactured for Sears from 1946-1962.
WINCHESTER MADE MOST THERE MODEL 1400.
J.C. Higgins, I think.
Alvin - The gun was probably made by Harrington & Richardson for Sears. It may be called the model 10 or model 120 in the H&R listings.
