Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - JC Higgins Model 20 12 Gauge -- Pump Shotgun w/ 26 in. VR BBL & Adj. Choke

LSB#: 121005TM01

Make: J.C. Higgins (made by High Standard)

Model: Model 20 ( or High Standard Model 200)

Serial Number: NSN

Year of Manufacture: 1961 - 1968

Gauge: 12 Gauge 2 ¾” Shells

Action Type: Pump Action with Tubular Magazine

Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “J.C. HIGGINS MODEL 20 – 12 GA. / SEARS, ROEBUCK AND CO. 583.2005” followed by a proof mark. The right side of the barrel is marked “PROOF TESTED 12 GA. / 2 ¾” CHAMBER”.

Barrel Length: approximately 26”

Choke: Six Click Adjustable Choke (similar to a Poly-Choke)

Sights / Optics: This shotgun is mounted with brass bead front sight set on a ventilated rib.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are checkered wood. There are some damaged checkering diamonds, handling and compression marks. Please see photos. The LOP measures 14” from the front of the trigger to the back of the very firm ventilated red J.C. Higgins recoil pad. The stocks rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is almost bright. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 90% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows thinning on the sharp edges and scratches from field use and storage on the flats of the receiver. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Very Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this shotgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: The J.C. Higgins Model 20 is basically a High Standard Flite-King Deluxe with a screw adjustable choke similar in principle to the famous Poly-Choke. This choke is marked in the traditional choke designations (IMP. CYL., MOD. FULL etc.) and beneath each of the designations is a suggested yardage (30 yards, 35 yards, and 55 yards) which seems like a novel idea. Mechanically this shotgun remains sound and should have a long and useful life still ahead of it. This gun could be used for hunting, skeet, sporting clays, trap and home defense.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
