    Ok, first off, Id like to say that Im a new member here. So if my posts are a bit n00bish, please be patient. Also, Im a recent gun owner, I dont know that much about firearms, but Im willing to learn.


    So, now to the point of the thread.


    I was thinking of buying a shotgun, but my dad has a .410 from sears that he never shoots. Id like to clean it up and take it shooting sometime soon.

    I was wondering if anyone would know how to find a manual for it. Sears doesnt sell these anymore, and from what I have read on another site, Sears shotguns werent even their manufacture, so I need to find the original manufacturer first, right? If thats the case, how would I go about doing that?

    Finding a manual for it will be tough. Break-open single shot?

    Most likely a High Standard Flite King with Sears markings. Maybe a Savage Model 30.
    Numrich has drawings and parts diagrams but not instructions. Look them up and see if you can tell which, if any, then pursue the right model.

    Actually Sears sold a couple different .410 bore pump action shotguns made by High Standard. The first were the various model 21's in the early 1960's and later after Sears had discontinued buying most shotguns and rifles made by High Standard in the middle 1960's in preference to guns made by Winchester, they bought some .410 bore shotguns in 1969 and the early 1970's

    We can tell you more about the shotgun if you will provide the markings found on the shotgun. There should be a two upper case letters assembly code on the barrel which would help date thig shotgun.

    High Standard's original deal with Sears was not like most other gun companies' deals. In the late 1940's when High Stadnard designed the model 20 shotgun and teh model 30 rimfire rifle, High Standard had no such product in production. Where as before Sears had negotiated a speciel version of other companies extant producte with modifications to achieve a specific price, Sears paid High Stadanrd to design, develop, test, tool, and produce these guns exclusively for Sears. Sears had exclusive use of these designs and was High Standard's largest customer. In time some of the later versions of the models became the Flite King model and over the 16 that High Stadanrd sold teh Flite Kings there were three different design series where each was a little different. although many parts were common.

    It appears to be the Model 21 that Articap posted about.

    Im going to dl the manual and see about getting this gun fixed up so I can take it to the range sometime soon.

    guys, i want to say that i have been searching for this manual as well and you have been a great help to me. this shotgun was the only thing my great grandfather had to give me before his passing, and i hate to let it sit but i dared not risk taking such an old gun apart without knowledge of getting it back together.
