I would like to know if the JC Higgins Model 88 22 caliber revolver was manufactured under a different name? If so, what would that name brand revolver model be? Also, can anybody give me a bit of history on the Sears Worlds Challenge Ejector Shotgun? Thank You.

    I'm fairly certain the model 88 was manufactured as a High Standard Double Nine, I had one and bought a spare grip for it, the box the grip came in indicated the grip also fit a High Standard. When I delivered it to the FFL for shipment, he referred to it as a double nine. I have since sold the pistol and can't check that, memory may not be accurate but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Can't help with the shotgun.

    The Sears Model 88 is nearly the same as the High Standard Sentinel.

    Sears also had western style models that were similar to teh High Stadanrd Double Nine family revolvers.

    The Sears "World's Challenge Ejector" is listed in my Spring 1902 Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue at $4.90.

    "FOR $4.90 WE OFFER THE WORLD'S CHALLENGE EJECTOR SINGLE BARREL BREECH LOADER WITH GENUINE TWIST BARREL."

    If you'd like to give me your Email address, I can copy the entire ad and send it to you.

    Country of origin isn't mentioned, but it was probably Belgium. Definitely not American made, as all American made guns were advertised as such.

    Since it has a "twist barrel", it was made for blackpowder shotgun shells, and shouldn't be used with modern smokeless powder loads.

    Best to use your "World's Challenge Ejector" as a wallhanger.

    Would you send me a copy of that ad. I have just purchased a gun similar to what you are describing.
