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).

Who made the Ranger 22?

Ranger was a Sears Roebuck trademark. The guns were manufactured by several makers. If you have a model number, you may be able to find it in cross-reference list.

If you're referring to the "Ranger 22 long" Pat. MCH 28. 71 May 27. 79

it may have been manufactured by E.L. Dickinson sometime between 1871 and 1879 although it is hard to say due to the fact that there is no manufacture name stamped on the gun. The serial number on one is 9119 so there were at least 9119 of these guns made. It is hard to find out how many of them are left due to the fact that they're about 129 years old.

---

Ranger was also a .22 caliber target rifle made from 1937 til' 1949 by Stevens Arms Co. It is the same as the model 416 Stevens target rifle.

The M-34 Ranger is a singleshot, cock-on-opening rifle. The forestock has finger grooves , chrome trigger, chrome bolt, metal butt plate. This rifle was made from 1932 - 1938 by Marlin.

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 the value of a Hopkins and Allen shotgun?

I hope someone answers this. I too have an old Hopkins & Allen 12 GA double barrel that I would like to know the value of. Someone told me that typically, the Hopkins & Allen brand was mostly a mail order product long ago. I've been told that as it was a mail order product, most likely there were a fair amount of these produced & the value probably was not substantial. I'm not a gun expert, but I have been to a fair amount of gun shows & thumbed through allot of gun books. I've never seen another Hopkins & Allen shotgun just like mine. I've seen a few that were similar, but not the same. One interesting thing on my shotgun is that every mating part has the serial # stamped on it. (a 4 digit #) I really like my old Hopkins & Allen, it has the external hammers to fire it. One of the hammers does not lock correctly, you have to pull the trigger forward for that hammer to get it to lock. I think a spring completes that task inside the gun normally, but mine has a broken one. The other hammer works correctly though. I used to use the gun a lot partridge hunting years ago & did some trap shooting with it too. I believe mine belonged to my great grandfather & when I'm done with it, I will hand it down to my boy. I won't part with it.

What is the value of a 1970 Sears Roebuck 12 gauge over under full choke shotgun in perfect condition?

No one has ever written a scholarly study of Sears Roebuck shotguns, and I doubt if anyone ever will. The Standard Catalog doesn't even mention them, Gun Trader's Guide lists about 6 models (not including any o/u doubles). If you know a model number, there are cross-reference lists that may tell who actually manufactured it. For value, find the cheapest new o/u at WalMart and figure 1/2 to 2/3 of it's list price. Some shotguns were made for Sears Roebuck under contract with Winchester. A superposed made in 1970 would probably have been made overseas, as American craftsmanship had priced itself out of the market but for the very rich. If it's Japanese made, Miroku or others, you've got a gem. (Check proof marks for kanji, etc.) If it's Spanish made, it's a pig in a poke; some really good guns come from there, but their metallurgy was suspect in the postwar period in the more economic varieties. If Italian made, another possible gem. Unlikely that the Turks were exporting o/u's in the 70s, though they make some good ones, and Russia was still Commie back then, so Sears Roebuck would probably have not been trading with them, though two barrel shotguns (side by side and o/u) were the only permissable firearm for tens of thousands of Igors in the Street. And they made a lot of them. Hunting was still a recognized activity under the commissars. An acquaintence of mine who took a duck hunting trip to the famed marshes of Mother Russia in the post-Munich days almost had his own guns taken away by German airport police during a stopover; disassembled double guns checked through by wealthy Americans evidently rang their anti-Arab alarms. He never could get over the irony that once behind the (fast rusting) Iron Curtain, nobody gave him a second glance crossing Red Square with a shotgun case in his hands. Kind of like it used to be in Amuricuh....

What is the history of a 10 gauge double barrel 10 gauge shotgun with hammers and percussion nipples stamped Genuine Laminated Steel on the barrels and T Parker New York on the left lock plate?

T. Parker is usually dismissed as "just another Belgian clunker," but I am beginning to think that is only because of the similiarity to a brand name (T. Barker) used by Sears on inexpensive imported shotguns c 1900.

A muzzle-loading percussion gun would have been made at least 40 years earlier. It is still probably a very utilitarian (keep the fox out of the henhouse) shotgun that will not attract collectors and is worth whatever a yuppie will pay for a mantle decoration.

I can't give you any information except that the type of gun would have been manufactured between the 1830's when the percussion cap was developed and about 1870 when breech loading shotguns had been available for about 10 years.

I would be interested in learning any additional information you may find.

If it opens to insert a shell, it's not percussion. It will be one of the inexpensive guns imported around 1900 by the thousands. Not collected unless in like-new condition, no value as a shooter. I've heard that the "decorator value" has fallen in the last few years, but might bring $150 + from a yuppie with a western theme (a couple of restaurant chains have one hanging in every location).

What is the history of a shotgun marked Belgium Excelsior Damascus Magnum Laminated Steel and the numbers 37801 and 40973?

Excelsior double barrel shotguns were made by various Belgian manufacturers c. 1890 - 1914 and I doubt if you will ever be able to identify the exact maker. The crown over the oval ELG indicates it was proofed for black powder after 1893. Damascus is one form of laminated steel, usually considered the best of this type construction, so if it were truly damascus, it would probably be marked as such. 18.0 would be the gauge, I believe that would be a full-choked 12 ga barrel. I doubt if the word below Excelsior would be "Magnum." I don't think that term would have been used for shotgun loads in that time period. Is it possible that it is the remnant of "Machine Made?" The numbers that look like serial numbers MAY actually be serial numbers, but there are no records available that would allow us assign a date of manufacture from them. More likely they are batch numbers or part numbers which could appear on many different guns. The "*M" appearing on the barrels and action are probably assembly marks to indicate that these were "fitted" (parts were not fully interchangeable in those days) and the "Y" possibly the worker who did the final fitting.

Where can you find information about an old bolt action rifle with a tubular magazine and no writing on it except Ranger 22 Cal?

The Ranger name was used by Sears Roebuck, apparently as early as the early 1900's and possibly as late as the 1960's. The guns were made by a variety of manufacturers. I have a list that cross-refrences Sears guns to the maker's model if you can locate any numbers on it. Most have model numbers with a decimal point in them, like 101.1601.

I believe that this model was made in the early 1960's. I have one and I have been told that depending on condition it's worth around $100-$200. If its in shambles but still fires it should be treasured as a family heirloom. Hope this helped.

What is the value of a 38 caliber Eastern Arms Revolver?

Eastern Arms was a Sears Roebuck trade name and the only reference I find listing a .38 revolver says they were made by Meriden Arms, which was a Sears subsidiary and in business only from c. 1905-1915. If your gun has grips marked Forhand Arms, I'd bet that the whole gun was made by that company and marked with the Sears name. That would agree with your estimate of the age as the Forehand name was used from 1890 to 1902. The only top-break .38 Revolver I find listed is the "Perfection Automatic" but my references disagree on the exact dates of production. The Standard Catalog of Firearms says 1898-1902 while The 1983 Official Price Guide says they were all made before 1899. The Standard Catalog suggests a value of $150 in NRA Very Good condition. I don't think the Eastern name would affect the value either way.

According to the the Blue Book of Gun Values 19th edition(which was published in 1998) your shotgun was manufactured by Winchester for sears and is a model 1200. The 100%(mint condition) value for a field model is listed as $220. The values rise slightly from there as the grades and options improve.
