    Well , I have a rifle , it says that it is a J.C. HIGGINS 45 CAL 35 REM , Sears , Roebuck and Co. This guns is on a 30/30 frame, but it shoots a 35 cal bullet. I don't know if the 45 cal on the gun is a misprint or not , Is It ?

    It's probably a JC Higgins 45, in 35 Rem. 45 being the model number. That's just a guess...

    So I googled it. That's it. It's a Model 45 in 35 Remington. From the pictures, it looks like a Marlin 336 in 35 Remington. Good rifle.

    CAL 35 REM is a phrase.


    Often the model number reflects the year of design or year of release....probably should have placed the word "MODEL" in front of the 45.
