Hello folks, my father in law just gave me his old shotgun on my last visit! this thing is in good shape and appears to be ready to shoot! He cannot remember when he bought it only that he decided that he was not fit to shoot a shotgun. He claimes that since new he has never been able hit anything with one, haha. There is a number...583.2002, behind the sears bla bla co. would this be the serial number or do they put it somewhere else? Any help would be appriciated.

The 583.2002 is the rollmark that Sears used to catalog their guns.

Your gun was manufactured by High Standard, it was their model 20 also.

Serial numbers weren't required until 1968 , so many companies didn't use them.
