JC Higgins Model 50 Commercial FN Mauser Action 30-06 Rifle Excellent Cond.

This is one of the extraordinary JC Higgins model 50 rifles that were made for Sears by none other than Fabrique National in Belgium using their superb large ring commercial Mauser action. Things were lean in Europe in the early 50s and the Belgium company gave sears a great deal which today means that if you find one of these rifles youve found a gem. This example features a 22 tapered barrel with ramped front blade and adjustable rear sporting sights, drilled and tapped receiver for scope and receiver sight, controlled feed claw extractor, swept bolt handle with flatted and checkered knob, hinged floor plate, walnut stock with sling swivel studs, grip cap and white line spacers. It appears that the rear stud was moved forward and its former hole plugged and the front stud looks like there was some work there also. LOP is 12-3/4. It retains better than 98% original finish with the receiver having faded to a slightly plum color while the bore is perfect, like new and the stock is completely sound with very few handling marks. A true gem of a rifle that is worth the starting price for just the action alone.
