Many gun lovers reading this ad regularly scour the internet for good deals on Fox shotguns.  One thing for certain; the availability of top quality, graded 20ga. Fox shotguns has dwindled to nearly zero.  Shooter/collectors have recognized the Fox 16ga. and 20ga. guns are the most well-balanced, best handling guns of all the vintage American doubles.  It is also known that they have the simplest, most reliable actions as well.  This Philly-made Fox, sn203125 produced in 1929, is an awesome find.  First, they only made about 2400 A Grade 20ga. Fox guns, less than 1200 with ejectors.  Due to damage, loss, poor restorations, etc. there are only a few hundred genuine, honest, factory correct, high-condition Fox AE 20ga. guns left in the world, and the guys that own them are not likely to be selling them soon.  Just look at the untouched condition of this gun!  The barrel blue is 98%, the action has 90% factory case color, the trigger guard retains 70% factory charcoal blue, the engraving and screws are crisp and clean, some natural carry wear on the wood…an awesome find!  The European walnut buttstock has very nice figure for an A Grade Fox and the 14 ½” LOP to the factory pad makes this a gun that will fit most American shooters.  This Fox has perfect mechanics, excellent bores, and is tight as new on breech face and hinge pin.  THIS IS A “VFI CERTIFIED” GUN, meaning we stripped the forend iron and receiver to the smallest parts, ran it through the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all parts for integrity and function, then lubricated and reassembled (a $275 service).  We did this service after the photos were taken, so the dried oil around the triggers is now gone.  VFI CERTIFIED guns carry a 90-day mechanical warranty.  This gun weighs in at 5lbs. 14oz. and balanced right on the hinge pin, even with 28” barrels and the factory pad.  It is hard enough to find a decent AE 20ga. nowadays, let alone one in totally unmolested condition.  Don’t let this one escape you.  It will be a long time until another Fox AE 20 this nice is offered for sale.  It will continue to gain value as you enjoy its use, so it is a grand investment tool for your hard-earned funds.  Thanks for looking!
