Rather odd set up for sights. The front sight is not adjustable and the rear sight is only adjustable for elevation. Who would need to lob a 12 gauge slug 2000 yards?

Of course, this being a smoothbore, sights for any shot past 50 yards would be completely useless.

It looks to be something that a gunsmith put together from a variety of parts from different sources.

Back in the 1950's and 60's, bolt action shotguns were plentiful and quite cheap. They were made by Marlin, Mossberg, and Stevens under their own name and for a wide variety of companies under a variety of "trade" names.

My first shotgun was a "J.C. Higgins" 20 gauge bolt action model with a tubular magazine under the barrel, It was made by Stevens.
