I got that for $40. It did not have a lick of finish left on it, and the TG is held in with a hardware bolt. But it runs great. I stuck it in the blasting cabinet then baked on a coat of Brownells Gun Kote in Earth Brown. The bolt is OD Green.
The JC Higgins are some of the best pump guns ever made. Forged steel. Even the slide bar is forged steel. And the length from, the trigger to the end of the mag tube is shorter than an 870, but the JC Higgins holds one extra shell (2-3/4" only though).
They were made by High Standard, and Mossberg uses the same design.
