What is the value of a J C Higgins shotgun model 20-12 gauge sold by Sears Roebuck and Co stamped Proof Tested 12 GA and 2 34 Chamber in very good condition?

J C Higgins Shotgun
  • The JC Higgins model 20 was manufactured by High Standard firearms company. In Arizona this shotgun,in in good to very good shape, will sell for $150.
  • I bought one from an ol'timer in PA for 50 dollars in fair but operational condition. Same Exact model and stampings.
  • About 125 to 200.00 dollars depending on condition and series
  • I have one, my father's Dad bought it new in the fifties in Kansas and he commenced to trash it by leaving it in the bed of a truck. Around 1980, my grandfather and I (in Kansas), re-blued it and refinished the wood. Bottom line, as a firearm, it's value is in it's usefulness. I use mine to shoot trap on days after my 12 ga. left me hurting, or when I want to try harder with less balls. My recommendation is to expect no cash value, either use it for historical value or bolt on a recoil supressor pad to make it sighteable, then shoot that dang thing. Wish I could tell you it was worth more, but Sears and Roebuck was a staple in this country back then, and this arm is kinda like a roll of toilet paper. No one will buy it from you, and you may not like it, but when you need it, it works one hell of a lot better than a corn cob or a page out of the wish book (Sears & Roebuck catalog, as toilet paper, a staple of many an outhouse in it's day). Shoot it, it's better than going to work (and cheap).

When was a J.C. Higgins 16 gauge bolt action shotgun model 583.14 made?

My cross-reference list says this is actually a Harrington & Richardson Model 120. Sears Roebuck sold firearms with the J.C. Higgins brand name from the 1940's into the 1960's or later.

H&R only produced the Model 120 during 1941 and 1942.

The Sears J. C. Higgins 583.14 was manufactured by The High Standard manufacturing Corp. in the later 1940's or early 1950's

What is any info on High Standard shotguns?

I can tell you that the pump guns are a very close "copy" of the very fine Remington model 31's and are a joy to use. One of the smoothest pumps ever made. Very good quality and available for very little money on the used market $100 to $200 dollars will buy most of them, the J.C. Higgins version (model 20) made for Sears is also a sleeper

Where can you find parts for a J C Higgins Model 103 16 22 Cal model 103.228-22cal?

gunpartscorp.com You can also search for Marlin model 80 parts seeing as how the J.C. Higgins is a clone of the model 80 and Marlin is easier to get parts for. I got a model 80 elevation key for the rear sight from the sight and looked and fit exactly the same as the old one I lost off my J.C.

Is there a bolt release for the Model 60 22LR?

Raise the bolt to the unlocked position, then pull the trigger while removing the bolt. That makes no sense. The Model 60 is a semiautomatic firearm, not a bolt-action. The old style Model 60 used the operating handle as a bolt hold-open. Pull the bolt about 3/4 way to the rear and push in on the bolt handle to lock it open. Pull the bolt handle back out and the bolt will be released to run forward. Newer Model 60's have a bolt release lever that extends down through the trigger guard.

What is the approximate value of a JC Higgins model 36 22 cal in pretty good condition?

the model 36 is the last in the line of auto-loading .22 rifles. in good condition the value is only around 75.00. grab a book or check a website and find out what the condition actually is. like most older things that are collected there is a standard chart for determining condition as accepted by most buyers. your "pretty good" condition may be an excellent condition and then the value will increase to as much as 175.00 depending on your area.

Can you use slugs in a J C Higgins shotgun with a poly-choke?

Poly Choke
  • Yes, set choke to cylinder.
  • Yes, you can use slugs in a poly choke gun i have a mossberg new haven model and i use slugs in it all the time just make shure that you open the choke up to mod. or im cyl or just the most open setting on the poly choke it shouldn't matter the your gun is a jc and mines a mossberg when i shoot slugs in it i use the inmrpved clyinder setting its the most open setting that my gun has just make shure you don't lossen the choke too much or you might shoot of the choke all together (my grandpa did that with his 12 ga. anyway
  • Poly Chokes have a "slug" setting or use Cylinder or Improved Cylinder. They are safe with rifled slugs. Ask Poly Choke Inc. before trying sabots which are meant for rifled barrel anyway and aren't accurate out of a smoothbore.

What is the age and value of a JC Higgins shotgun?

The J.C. Higgins trade name was used by Sears, Roebuck & Company of Chicago from 1946 to 1962 on firearms and other sporting goods.

Arms bearing this tradename were manufactured by a variety of American gunmakers.

The 16 gauge was made by Marlin, the .410 by Harrington & Richardson. The .22 by Savage/Stevens. Assuming all guns are fully functional but not in like-new condition, they are worth about $80, $150, and $100.

583 on a Sears Roebuck gun means it was manufactured by Hi Standard. Bolt action shotguns aren't very popular, so I would say it is worth no more than $100.

A single shot bolt action 20 gauge might be worth around 65-75 dollars in good shape.

According to SearsArchives.com answering "Was J.C. Higgins a real person?":

"As a matter of fact, he was. John Higgins began his career at Sears in 1898. He worked his way up the corporate ladder to take charge of the headquarters office bookkeepers before retiring in 1930. He died in 1950. During discussions of possible brand names for a new line of Sears sporting goods, Higgins� name was proposed. He gave his consent and, because he had no middle name, the "C" was added for effect. As far as we can determine, the J.C. Higgins name first appeared on baseballs and gloves in the 1908 catalog." some one is mistaken the 583 code on jc Higgins House brand every one seems to think it means High standard taht is simply not the case all of the JC Higgins guns made buy Sears at that time Sears owned High standard how Ever all ot shotguns 583 1 to 583 12 were made by Harrington & Richardson Arms Co. For Sears /High standard Sears had bought the right to the gun from H&R That is why you will not see the model 10 bolt action in the sears catalog till 1949 The model 10 is even listed by High standard collectors as a High standard model How Ever it was not It was a Sears model sears owned in fact it was one only hand full of orphan guns that are actually real sears guns So back to 583 That originally meant sears and roebuck house brand product made in house all other guns were vender gun and had vender ID 103 meant marlin 101 meant savage /Stevens Vendors sold Sears the same product they sold for them selves with exception that every thing they sold Sears had the Sears name on it But with High standard they were not allowed to sell their shotguns some of there hand guns to any body but Sears Sears controled some of the product it was not until the late 50s and early 60s that high standard ability to sell their own shotguns and 22 rifles Here is Sears answer on old product manuals: http://www.searsarchives.com/products/questions/manuals.htm

What is a JC Higgins Model-100 worth?

The value is totally dependent on condition, as are most things. I just picked up a real nice model 29 for $65, which was a steal, in the good to very good condition it is in it is worth $100-175.

You can find these rifles anywhere from $60 all the way up to about $200, again, totally dependent on condition.

What is the value of a JC Higgins model 33 22 cal pump rifle?

Hi, I have one that I inherited and wouldn't take anything for it. Mine has a 4X Weaver scope on it and is a blast to shoot. So value is a personal thing. If not sentimental, probably no more than $150.00 in perfect shape or whatever the top bid is at an auction.

When was the JC Higgins model 88 22cal revolver made and by what company?

Most if not all of the J. C. Higgins pistols were made by High Standard.

There is a web site that claims the JC Higgins model 88 22cal revolver was made in the 1960's 1980's for Sears & Roebuck. And also there were a couple of sites that list the price for this gun between $25 and $75 all the way to $150.

As far as the date, however, another WikiAnswers visitor says he bought a new Model 88 in the spring of 1953 as a household gun and still has it in the original box along with all of the documentation on the revolver that came in the box. It was bought at Sears in Wichita, Kansas.

The first guns shipped in February 1955 1953 is too soon The original assembly drawing is dated June 1954.

AnswerI have a J.C Higgns 88. 9 shot,long barrel 22. I traded for this revolver in 1960. I thought and still do believe it had some age on it at the time. I would like to the date it was made. There is some more numbers on. 583 880 on left side and 20135 on the other side.

20,135 woukd have been shiped in late 1955

My email address is results@dixie-net.com if anyone has any thoughts.

AnswerThe 583 prefix on a Sears gun indicates manufacture by either Hi Standard or Harrington and Richardson.

The 583 revolvers were all High Standard manufacture.

1957 or earlierThe first time I was ever exposed to firearms was when I was five years old. My father took me along when he and a friend went out to shoot. I stayed in the car because the noise frightened me. I still have the gun my dad was shooting that day -- a JC Higgins Model 88. The year would have been 1957, so the model 88 goes back at least that far. these revolvers were made by High standard wich was owned by Sears in thouse days this madle was the first revolver made by High standard and at that time exclusive Sears product. It was first introduced in 1955 and was made until 1962 .High standard eventually sold this revolver on their own around 1957 they called it the sentinel revolver These guns are of very high quality and excellent shooters a J C Higgins Model 88 in excellent cond . is on a par with better quality 22 revolvers and usually sell for several hundred dollars.

It was not an exclusive seras product.. Serial number 1 went to Sears and serial number 2 was sold with the High Stadanrd brand. Sears only owned 30% of the High Standard commmon stock It was sold through the end of 1963 and those not sold were returned to High Stadnard and remarked to remove the Sears connection.

What is the current value of a J C Higgins model 31 22 cal rifle in fair condition?

I have found them listed on the net for $100.00 - $160.00. All of these have been without the standard 4x scope. I purchased one at auction last night for $165.00 with scope in good condition. Kind of missed the one my dad had when I was a kid. Make sure the internal sling is ther and in working order, an inovation not seen on many rifles and a hell of a good idea.

What is the value of JC Higgins 20-12 gauge pump shotgun?

a J.C. Higgins Model 20 12 Gauge pump shotgun.. it would probably be worth $100 - $200 in very good condition.. i bought a 1962 model 20 12 gauge from a friend of the family who is a gunsmith for $300. it was his personal shotgun that he had for over 40 years, bought new, was made in America before sears started outsourcing their labor, and was in PRISTINE CONDITION..

I'm not saying yours is worth $300, i only paid that because i knew who owned it, i knew that it was in perfect shape, both working condition and there was no scratch or wear spots on the entire thing. i only forked that much out after shooting my dads Remington 870 and comparing the Higgins to it.. with the muzzle break and separated choke, there is so much less recoil on the Higgins compared to the 870.. when you're competitively shooting (and hunting, too) the less recoil there is means you can set up your second shot much faster and more accurately.

the value of your shotgun is the value of its operational condition, with the aesthetics playing a very small part.
