This is a JC. Higgins 583.23 Bolt Action 12 gauge. This rifle can take 2 ¾ shells in the chamber. Guns America sorted this into the Side by Side family but this shotgun is a single barrel. This shotgun was marketed by Sears but made by High Standard in the 1950s. This shotgun is not on the recall line of the 583s that were made, the recall ended with the 583.22.
This rifle has a 28 inch barrel with an adjustable choke. The finish on the barrel has faded with age and the metal is in good condition. The bore has a mirror finish and the magazine is a 5 round tube fed magazine.
The stock is in good shape with some scratches and nicks but no cracks or serious damage. The finish is faded in some locations from use and handling.
The action functions correctly. Ammunition feeds correctly from the magazine and chambers well. We did not fire this gun.
