Who else made the 30-06 Sears Roebuck Ted Williams bolt action rifle?
Winchester made a lot of them although not all. Compare it to a Winchester Model 70.
Your rifle was made by Winchester for Sears Roebuck- it is the Winchester 94. Sears sold firearms under their own brand names, such as JC Higgins. Ted Williams, baseball player, permitted his name to be used as a brand on Sears sporting goods. The Sears branded firearms are typically valued at about 20% less than the original brand guns. They are still a very good buy for the money.
Does anyone know the approximate value of a JC Higgins - model 33 pump action 22 rifle made by or for sears roebuck and co?
The number you are referring to is not the serial number. That number is the catalog number for Sears & Roebuck. The serial number is on the bottom of the rifle. V147XXX (example). These guns are essentially a Winchester 94 made for Sears & Roebuck Company produced between 1964 through 1978. There are no records available to confirm the exact year it was produced. Hope this helps.
