You might need to post clearer, closer pictures for anyone to help you much.

I am guessing it is a JC Higgins sold by Sears. Possibly a 103 series. Several companies including Marlin made rifles for them. That is probably walnut under that black paint. May have been made for Sears by Mossberg as the trigger guards are similar. A Mossberg would have finger grooves in the grip.

Marlin. Had a similar one--mine was magazine fed. Look at the rifling---if it has a bunch of really
shallow grooves, it's Marlin's MicroGroove rifling.

POSSIBLY a Marlin 81. Made from the 1940s until the 60s
