    Default J. C. Higgins Model 101.1 aka Savage Model 94C

    I recently received an old 16 gauge J.C. Higgins Model 101.1, which is essentially a Savage model 94C sold by Sears Roebuck & Company under J.C. Higgins. It was a relative's closet gun, that was handed down to me. I have an FA-10 set aside for it, but I can't seem to locate a serial Number anywhere on this shotgun. Any one have any ideas?

    Pull the barrel off and check the lands on the receiver - the barrel and receiver should match

    The other possibility is that there are no numbers to find...

    It looks like there is no Serial Number, I have inspected up and down the shotgun closely. Will that affect the FA-10 submission process? I would imagine I'd put N/A or something like that in the space for the serial number. Also, will this registration count towards my transfers limit if I make some future purchases?

    >>It looks like there is no Serial Number<<

    The gun you have is "pre serial number". My very first gun was almost just like that, but an Iver Johnson. (back in 1958)

    NSN, not a problem, it's pre '68 and they were not required.
    If you pull a trigger, you have to pull together.

    You can buy as many guns as you want. You can only sell 4 firearms in a calender year using FA-10's, anymore than 4 have to go through an FFL.
