    I like old guns and purchase them when I find a deal on them and I had picked up a Model 60 12 ga auto in 90 PCT condition. I took it out for a round of five stand and it doubled four times. Where should I look for the cause. I have heard that the sear can cause that. Don't have a clue how hard it will be to find parts. Suggestions, recommendations please. Jackie B.

    Sears never made anything. Everything was private labeled, so you gun was probably made by a popular manufacturer and given the JC Higgins brand.

    Before I started looking for parts I would do a good cleaning and especially the trigger assy

    Thanks everyone. I know this gun probably has not been taken apart and cleaned in a long, long time. It had sat in a safe for the last fifteen years and no telling where it was before that but looked very good on the outside as though it had been cleaned.
