This old gun needs a good cleaning and I can't figure out how to take it apart, even to plug it, thanks in advance for any help.

I don't know if this shotgun is on their website (it's in their catalog), but check http://www.gunpartscorp.com They are the same shotgun as the High standard 200 series. I own 2 JC riot guns myself & bought a set of the Gun Digest series of books on firearms assembly/disassembly (6 vols covers most guns) & they are well worth the money.

The site you recommened did have every part you might need for any gun, but it didn't have a manual to show how to take it apart. Where could I pick-up that gun digest, does it have my gun in it?

Any good size Gun shop might carry them or could order them. Also try Barnes & Noble or Waldenbooks. Your JC Higgins M20 (JC Higgins is the Sears store Brand made by High Standard) is basically a High Standard Flight King, which is covered in the book.
