I have a Dailey 12Ga Bolt with Box Magazine that was my Dad's. It's hanging on the wall in my Shop Area, rusty as Hell!

My dad had a mossberg 12ga. that had a box mag and was smoothbore with no vent rib. Does anyone know what model that one was?
"The SKS is a rifle, made the way they should be, out of a heavy block of crappy commie steel, set in an inletted semi-reshaped 2x4."

Not my quote but I agree completely.

My Mossberg is a 195K-A purchased 40 years ago in 1965 from Sears and Roebuck. Two round removable magazine and C-Lect choke. Used mainly for target practice with slugs and practice in cleaning lead out of barrels.

Higgins Shotgun

I inherited a JC Higgings when my wifes uncle died. Mine happens to be in the recall group.

Search on J C Higgins recall
The shotguns were sold in Sears stores and through its catalog as the
"J.C. Higgins Bolt Action 12-Gauge Model 10 Shotgun" during the 1950s. It was carried under a number of product numbers: 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16, 583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. The product model number is engraved on the barrel of the shotgun.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the shotgun. Call
800-817-9165 for identification verification and instructions on return

Yours being a 583.11 sounds like it is probably okay.

I learned to squirrel hunt with Dad's JC Higgins .410 bolt shotgun. I'd still use it now if .410's weren't so ridiculously expensive.
