You are looking at a J.C. Higgins Model 583.21 Sears, Roebuck & Co. 16 Gauge Bolt-Action Shotgun. The J.C. Higgins trademark appeared on many of shotguns sold through Sears, Roebuck & Co. Most models were manufactured through sub-contracted manufacturers. This particular gun was manufactured by J.C. Higgins.
This 16 gauge bolt-action shotgun is chambered for 2-3/4" shells. The gun has a 26" barrel choked FULL with a front bead sight. The bore is clean and in very good condition. Blue is 90-95% but starting to thin. There are also some thin scratches in the barrel and magazine tube (see photos).
The gun has a one-piece hardwood stock with its original finish and the original J.C. Higgins red rubber recoil pad, which is in good condition. There is a thin crack in the top of the stock, just behind the receiver and some dings in divots in the stock, otherwise it’s in good condition (see photos). L.O.P. is 13-3/4".
We cycled three shells through the gun and it fed the shells fine, however due to the nature of these guns we WILL NOT guarantee that it will properly feed at all times. Serial #NONE. STK. #21775.
This J. C Higgins may be just like the one your Dad or you used as a kid. You could use the gun as is or put some time and effort into bringing it back. 16 Gauge guns are becoming harder to find every day so this may be one you want to add to your collection.
