$700.00 is pretty steep. This is a Husqvarna 640, same action.



Great rifles.

Great rifles.
It might be a Husqvarna? I believe that was stamped on the side. But the guys are saying its a model 51 and it has regular scope mounts unlike yours.

JC Higgins were sold by Sears & sometimes they used a Sears model number, the 51 was a FN Mauser, that might be your answer right there, here check this out at Hoosier gun works..............
