Higgins, Ted Williams, Ranger, etc.). Sears discontinued the sale of all firearms circa 1980, and the Ted Williams trademark was stopped circa 1978.

Thanks anyway for the advice. I'll continue to look and if anyone has anything that may help me, I'd appreciate it.

I'm not very familiar with bolt-action guns. Most of the guns I own are lever guns. I think this gun has what you're calling a push feed. Castle Zagyg Yggsburgh Pdf here. The 'magazine' has a piece of spring steel under it that just pushes a platform up that carries the rounds into the breech. The bolt has a little indent in it that the round fits in and it has a little nubby spring sticking up at one edge that ejects the spent round. If that's not a push feed, please let me know, because I just don't know any better.
