Beginning in 1956, Sears Roebuck and Company produced the world's first gas-powered gun under its J.C. Higgins brand. The gas system was produced by High Standard Manufacturing.
J C Higgins was the store brand for Sears. These guns were manufactured by Marlin. Contact Marlin. Marlin made no shotguns for J C Higgins if the number begins with 101 that's the vendor code for Savage Stevens if its 583 than your gun was a House brand made by Sears /High Standard Sears owned High Standard in thouse days and all of the rifles and shotguns marked with 583 code were Sears product The J C Higgins brand owned the pattents for these guns parts can be found at Numrich arms Gun parts in West Hurley NY. I donot rcomend modifying a old J C Higgins what you probably don't know is that these guns are quite old they were made between 1945 and 1961 and these guns were never offered with short barrels and pistol grips barrels shorter than 18 and one half inch is a very serious violation of the Fedral Fire arms act with heavy fines and a Long prison sentence. It is also can be construed as violation of the same law to put a pistol grip on any shotgun not approved by BATF and originally designed to have one BE CAREFULL as none of the JC Higgins shotguns and rifles were designed or approved for such a modification . Many shotguns were mossberg 500 Remington 870 for example and even these as long as the serial numbers place their manufacture after 1985 any thing before that date is tricky Leave the JCH alone it not worth the trouble it will cause you
