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.
