J.C. Higgins Bolt Action; Need Stock

I just gave my brother a J.C. Higgins Bolt Action Sears Model 583.23 12 GA . shotgun. And he is in the need for a stock replacement. I understand that the Sears, Roebuck and Co. recalled most of this line : 583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. but "NOT" the 583.23 model. 583.23 model was not listed as a killer gun. Anyway I looked up the usaul sources and non to be found and Gunbroker zilch. I hoping one of you guys might know of something or someone. Sears News letter for you that do not know the hazards : http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/mi...TE=Mar+5,+1999

Gun Parts Corp provides a cross reference for the Sears/JC Higgins house brands and the arms companys that made them. Unfortunately I can't find a 583.23 BA. Are you sure sbout the number? If you can find who made the gun, GPC will probably have the stock you need.

Heres the index:

J.C. Higgins Model 583.13 thru 581.23 stock

Numerich has the 583-13-23 series listed as a "High Standard model 10". I checked numerich's out before and no stocks for the 583.23 availiable.The models 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16,583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. would fit the 583.23 . I have a 583.13 like new hanging on my shop wall and it is the same configuration as the 583.23 model. I can't find a reference for a High Standard model 10 shotgun. Strange!


If anyone knows of one please drop me a line! I don't think the 16Ga. would fit?

The recall has been going on for sometime.

You'd think parts would be around for these things.When they recalled the other models dealers were sending the bolts in like crazey and trying to sell the rest of the guns on 'Broker' for parts. Ill post the recall just incase anyone still uses this shotgun. I'd don't think they are offering the money anymore for the bolt. Here's the recall: Sears Public Relations And Communications
(847) 286-8371

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Sears Issues Voluntary Recall on J.C. Higgins Shotgun


HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears, Roebuck and Co.
(NYSE: S) today announced a voluntary recall of J.C. Higgins Bolt Action
12-Gauge shotguns, a product manufactured for and sold by the company during
the 1950s.
The shotguns are being voluntary recalled due to a potential problem with
the bolt latch assembly, which could cause the assembly to fail allowing it to
dislodge and strike the operator in the face. Sears is offering a $160
finders' fee for the return of the bolt, making the shotgun inoperable.
The shotguns were sold in Sears stores and through its catalog as the
"J.C. Higgins Bolt Action 12-Gauge Model 10 Shotgun" during the 1950s. It was
carried under a number of product numbers: 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16,
583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. The product model number
is engraved on the barrel of the shotgun.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the shotgun. Call
800-817-9165 for identification verification and instructions on return
procedures.
Sears, Roebuck and Co. discontinued the sale of all firearms and
ammunition in the early 1980s. Through its network of more than 830 full-line
stores and 2,500 off-the-mall stores, Sears is a leading retailer of apparel,
home and automotive products and services, serving more than 50 million
households.

I don't think the High Standard Model 10 shotgun is what you are looking for.

Thanks!~Rika!- The stock is for my "little brother" that is 35 years old. I gave him the shotgun for his birthday and its the first gift I ever given him. I wish it could have been something little better then a J.C. Higgins "crappy" bolt action shotgun. I bought a couple 583 's for $50 and decided to give him one. Its his first gun ! A Gentlemen E-mailed me this morning stating he had a nice stock for $30 bucks. I hope I can get it without any problems.You know net sales/Deals are touch and go....
