From 1908 until 1962, Sears, Roebuck & Company sold a wide variety of sporting goods and recreational equipment, including bicycles, golf clubs, rifles, shotguns, and revolvers under the brand name "J. C. Higgins." These products were well made and were popular with the company's historical core of rural and working-class consumers.
Like many other Sears products, the Sears firearms were originally made by major firearm manufacturers. The Model 20 was produced by High Standard Arms, as was the Model 88 revolver.
The J.C. Higgins brand for Sears sporting goods was replaced with the Ted Williams brand. Many of the more durable J.C. Higgins products are still available as second hand items.
The brand name, J. C. Higgins, was based on a real person, John Higgins who was a Sears employee. He moved from his birth country of Ireland to the United States in his late teens and began working for Sears in 1898. He spent his entire working career with Sears and was Vice President for the company for a period of time. He was actually born with no middle name but the Sears Co. presented the idea of labeling their sporting good line with his name and saw it more presentable labeling the brand as J.C. Higgins. He worked with the company until his retirement as head bookkeeper in 1930. Higgins died in 1950. His expertise in sporting goods or sports is unknown.
Bought this from a great member of this forum a while back. I’ve brought her shooting a few times and was a ton of fun. Unfortunately ive made a (few) purchases that my other half hasn’t approved of so I thought I’d thin the safe down a bit. I Didn’t expect this much for a Sears but it’s a blast...
Selling my J.C. Higgins Model 20. There really isn't too much to say about this. It's a solid and reliable pump action with wood furniture. It was made by High Standard Firearms and is from some time before 1962, when Sears discontinued the J.C. Higgins brand. 2 3/4 inch chamber, 5 round tube...
For sale is this Sears Roebuck J.C. Higgins bolt action 20 gage shotgun with adjustable choke on the end. A few handling marks but otherwise a good clean piece. No idea of the round count but it looks to be very few. Two round mag capacity fed through the bottom. Two boxes of Remington ammo...
I know what a shot in the dark it is, but thought I'd throw it out there anyway.
About 1985 a family member pawned and never retrieved a JC Higgins rifle at the long-gone pawnshop about 111th and SE Holgate in Portland.
I believe it was a model 30 or 31. It had the two section stock...

What you see in the photos is exactly what you'll get. This gun was handed down to me by my late grandfather and since it was his primary quail gun I never grew a heavy attachment to it. I've clung onto to other sentimental pieces of his and would like to see this go to a rare soul that...
