I have acquired a rifle that the barrel is marked ".50 - Sears Roebuck &Co. - Black Powder Only". Does anyone know when Sears was selling muzzle loaders under their own name? I have seen weapons from Sears marked J. C. Higgins but I never saw one marked "Sears"

Coalforge,
I just build a Sears Hawken marked "Sears Roebuck and Co. Chicago, IL, Made in Japan, Miroku" on one side and "Hawken Rifle Model 292 51779 50 Cal. Black Powder Only." A friend bought this kit in the 1960's; never build it and recently gave it to me. 
Hope this helps.
Charlie

Miroku also made guns for Dixie Gun Works.

I think I discovered how to post an image. The Miroku is the bottom one.
