A specific model coil be useful in determining who the actual manufacturer is. JC Higgins is a Sears branding, but models made by, Marlin, Savage, and others were made and rebadged for sale by Sears. My first .22 was a JC Higgins, made by Marlin. I found that finding parts was easier using the Marlin model designation.

IF it looks like this:

It is a Savage Model 34.

However, my references on the 101.23 are shadowy, so that may not be the one. Would suggest you have a smith check it over- could need a good cleaning, could be missing parts.

Sort a kinda like that. Hard to say exactly. The mag looks the same I may just bring it to a couple shops and see what they say. Maybe bring it to a smith.

Thanks for the input!

Vintage 22's are(or should be) famous/infamous for shooting thousands of dirty shooting 22's...
without a single internal cleaning of the bolt. The amount of unburned powder,bullet lube and general crud can be sometimes mind numbing.

The last three C&R 22's I've bought wouldn't even ding a snap cap.

Before you go on a parts search...try soaking the bolt for a few days in mineral spirits,kerosene
Coleman lamp fuel,turpentine or commercial parts cleaner.(use what you've got on hand)

If you don't have an air source to blow it out with..you can get by with Gun Scrubber or computer
keyboard air. WATCH your eyes when you blow it out!!!!!
You might be very surprised at how much crud a 22 bolt can contain.
Remember..quite a few of these old guns get sold or put away because they don't shoot anymore for the lack of a reasonable cleaning. Good luck
