Serial Number: 18276

The A.H. Fox shotgun has become the most sought after vintage American double gun in the country, and for good reason.  The Fox gun consistently has the best balance and handling dynamics, the simplest and most reliable mechanics, and some of the most handsome engraving of them all.  We see many Fox Sterlingworth guns for sale, a fair number of the A Grade guns for sale (the first and lowest level of engraved Fox guns), and from there things get scarce.  The Fox guns are seen in B Grades, C Grades, and even the beautiful X Grade often enough, but when you get to their second highest grade, the D Grade, they become quite rare.  The DE Grade Fox we show here, sn18276 built in 1910, is an awesome example of the elegant and graceful early style DE engraving pattern, still retaining 50% of the factory case color, excellent screws, superb wood-to-metal fit, 30” number 1 weight Krupp Steel barrels choked F/F, with mirror shiny bores that fit tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face, all in excellent mechanical order ready for another 112 years of use afield and at the gun club crushing clays.  This Fox shotgun shipped from the factory with a straight-hand English style stock, fully checkered splinter forend, and the heaviest barrels meant for heavy loads.  There are no flaws with this gun other than honest wear and the gun has been nicely maintained during its time on earth, with no pitting or rust anywhere, the wood solid and without cracks or repairs, the checkering still distinct and factory original.  We have made this a VFI CERTIFIED GUN with the Ultrasonic cleaning, stripping the action and forend iron to their smallest parts to clean all old oil and grub from the metal, inspecting all parts for function and integrity, lubricating all properly, and reassembling.  This is a $375 service in our shop.  VFI Certified guns carry a 90-day mechanical warranty and are ready for another 5-10 years of use before needing service again.  The chambers are factory 2 5/8".  They can be altered for modern ammunition upon request.  This A.H. Fox DE Grade was built while Ansley H. Fox was still in charge and signing off on all the guns that shipped, making sure all were all built to his high standards.  The internal parts were all thoroughly polished, and the fit and finish are as good as any era of the Fox gun.  Of course, the scarcity and their inherent beauty makes them highly sought after and more costly than common guns.  LOOK CLOSELY AT THE SPECS BELOW.  THE BARREL SPECS ARE FACTORY ALL THE WAY, NEVER ALTERED.  THE STOCK DIMENSIONS ARE MODERN.  THIS IS A GREAT GUN!  We have priced this fine DE Grade at well below market, making it a very strong investment in a TANGIBLE ASSET THAT YOU WON’T LOSE MONEY ON OVER TIME LIKE YOU ARE LIKELY TO DO IN TODAY’S STOCK MARKET.  Your Fox shotgun can be enjoyed and will gain value while you take her afield and pass her down to the next generation.  Don’t miss this opportunity to own a truly HIGH-GRADE A.H. FOX DE GRADE GUN.  Thanks for looking!
