Last of these rifles built in 1959 and sold through Sears as J C Higgins. Marlin name on rifle in 40's and earlier. Just got back this afternoon from Magnolia RPC where I put several rounds through this 40+ year old .22SL Lr bolt action. Had to do a minor fix today but it worked. Anyone have one of these old bolt actions. It seemed to like the shorts much better than the Lr's but really seemed to like Remington Thunderbolt in LR. She has a 24" barrel. Sights are really poor fixed but useful. Parts are, of course, really hard to come by.
