It would be a pre-68 if there is no serial number

Try a
cross-reference
.


eta: Sometimes you can pull the stock and find a clue on the metal, or the wood.

The best info that I could find shows that the Sears 273.27510(2C) / Winchester 131 was made in the late 60's.

I was too young then, but I seem to remember handguns being sold at Sears too. Buy some Craftsman tools, a pair a jeans, and a .38 and be out the door in 10 minutes...

I can remember when you could get a Colt Python mail order through their catalog.

Sears actually sold a number of .22 LR handguns under their J.C. Higgins brand name.

I have one identical to yours. I got it new for Christmas when I was 12 in 1970.



Im sorry I should have clarified who the owner of the rifle was... not me. My friend's grandfather gave it to him. It was his and he showed up here with it and didnt know the age.

Wish it was mine though.

That is a nice rifle, I have the exact same rifle sold under the "Cooey" name, and beat to death.


I love those older rifles
