103.-- on a Sears Roebuck gun indicates manufacture by Marlin. I don't find a 103.7, but 103.72 and 103.74 are listed as Marlin Model 59.

Brophy in his book, Marlin Firearms, a history of the guns and the Company that made them, published in 1989 by Stackpole Books, lists the Sears Ranger 103-7 as a 16 ga. Marlin Model 90 O/U shotgun.

Take it to a gunsmith for proper identification. Marlin made a Ranger model 103 over and under. Sears Ranger 103 O/U was the Marlin Model 90 O/U. Sears sold them under the Ranger name prior to WWII and as the JC Higgins after WWII.

Marlin. The Ranger 103-1 O/U shotgun was Sears' name for the Marlin Model 90. Sears used the Ranger name prior to WWII and JC Higgins after WWII. The Ranger 103-xx and the Marlin model 90 were introduced in 1937.

The Ranger .22LR 103-13 that was sold through Sears was actually a Marlin model 81. It was made between 1937 and 1939.
