Good morning.....I think that you may mean J.C. Higgins...is that correct?

Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago
Well, first I can tell you that the Higgins model 20 was actually the High Standard model 200. Sears did not make their own guns but rather purchased them from major companies with the name Higgins branded on it to appear like their own line of guns.....The model 20 was first offered in 1946 and production continued until the early 1960’s, when Sears discontinued the J.C. Higgins line of guns.
