Ansley H. Fox’s double guns have become the most desirable vintage American double guns on the planet, as Michael McIntosh points out in his book A.H. FOX  “THE FINEST GUN IN THE WORLD”.  The Fox guns are supremely balanced, extremely reliable guns with classic good looks.  There are a LOT of 12ga. A Grade Fox guns available to own so how do you choose which one to buy?  Most have been poorly restored, heavily used, have buggered up screws from hack gunsmithing attempts, or have characteristics that just don’t fit your needs.  For investment and enjoyment of use, finding Fox guns that have been fully vetted, inspected, and documented by experts, fully cleaned, and inspected, and brought up to superb condition visually and mechanically make the most sense for your hard earned money.  This is what we have here in this Fox A Grade 12ga., sn31122 built in Philadelphia PA in 1926.  This Fox has condition, shipped with 30” number 2 weight barrels (the 2nd heaviest contour made) with mirror shiny bores choked M/F.   PRESENTLY IT IS DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE, TO FIND 2 ½” 12GA. SHELLS TO PURCHASE.  BECAUSE OF THIS, VFI GUNSMITHS HAVE CAREFULLY MEASURED THE BARREL WALL THICKNESS AHEAD OF THE CHAMBER AND HAVE LENGTHENED THE CHAMBERS TO 2 ¾” AND EXTENDED THE FORCING CONES TO 1 ½” TAPERS SO THAT YOU CAN SHOOT MODERN 2 ¾” FIELD LOADS THROUGH OUR GUNS.  This is a $360 service in our shop.  Modern chambers and long forcing cones makes for safe shooting with softer recoil and better patterns.  The action retains 60% factory case color, engraving still sharp, with excellent screws, trigger guard retaining 95% of the factory charcoal blue, mechanics excellent, barrels tight as new on breech face, all in superb working order.  This is a VFI CERTIFIED GUN, meaning we stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest part, cleaned all in the Ultrasonic cleaner, scrubbed each part and inspected all for function and integrity, properly lubricated and reassembled.  VFI CERTIFIED guns have a 90-day mechanical warranty (a $275 service in our shop).  THIS IS THE KIND OF GUN THAT WATERFOWLERS, TURKEY HUNTERS, WILD PHEASANT HUNTERS, AND SPORTING CLAYS FANS SEEK OUT FOR THEIR SPORT.  Weighing 7 1/4lbs. and balanced ½” ahead of the hinge pin, it will prove deadly in the field or on the range.  With all the vintage sporting clays shoots popping up across the country, this is a great Fox to show off at the club.  You deserve a fine A.H. Fox for this year’s hunting season, so don’t hesitate.  This fine Fox A Grade has it all with great stock dimensions, perfect mechanics, and notable good looks!  This is a gun you can use and enjoy, and it will continue to gain value.  Thanks for looking!
