Galazan Fox FE SPECIAL .410, AS NEW, ROY ENGRAVED, FABULOUS!
Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing has been reproducing the A.H. Fox shotgun for a long time now, and their ability to scale the frame and internal parts down to a true baby frame .410 is a gift to shooters. This gun, snF205738, is as new, but I have shot it at the gun club. Weighing in at 5lbs. 9oz. and balanced perfectly on the hinge pin, it is a delight to carry and shoulder. How nice this gun would be to carry behind fine dogs after woodcock, quail, huns, or grouse. Whatever your choice, clays or game, this gun is a masterpiece of the gun maker’s art. The high grade Fox guns will always be desired and are wonderful investment quality guns you can enjoy as there value grows over time. Much more fun than “paper stocks” and artwork that is candy to the eye! For more information on the CSMC made Foxes, visit .
The gun is as new, with no marks or wear. 26” barrels, choked F/F (.023/.023), double ivory beads, full wedges of engraving at breech and muzzle, gold wire inlays at muzzle and breech, gold inlaid numbers and lettering on barrel flats, classic lightning bolt at the breech in gold. The barrels are fine Krupp steel and are richly rust blued. Just beautiful.
The Ansley Fox action is one of the simplest, most reliable, and well proportioned box locks ever designed. This FE Special is handsomely executed with a scalloped back, 7 gold inlays, flower and scroll style engraving, gold wire inlays, deeply sculpted clam shells on the breech balls, all wonderfully done and signed by famed artist-engraver Richard Roy. Even the water table is tastefully engraved and the serial number inlaid in gold! Case color is 100%, excellent screws, lever well right of center, strong ejectors, gold plated double triggers with excellent, crisp pulls, all in new, perfect order.
The English style stock is richly figured and finely checkered with flor-de-lis and ribbons, with wood to metal fit that is superb. There are no marks or flaws on the beautiful oil finished wood. The LOP is 14 5/8” to a checkered butt, 2 3/8” drop at heel, 1 9/16” drop at comb (stock can be bent to your specs within 10 days of purchase). The long, graceful splinter forend with ebony inlay and Schnabel shaping is also perfect, with fine as new checkering and fully engraved release lever and escutcheon. The inside of the forend iron is engraved with gold inlays as well. NICE!
This is a magnificent work of art that can be purchased now for well under market value, making it a grand investment opportunity for those who love shooting and carrying small bore doubles. There is just something about the diminutive .410 bore that brings romance and challenge together for the shooting sportsman. Don’t let this one get by you. It is a rare opportunity to buy a Galazan Fox at a bargain price. With the extra gold inlays and other engraving additions by Richard Roy this gun would exceed $30,000 if ordered new from Galazan and the waiting period would be painful. Own it now!
There are more photos upon request. There is a 30 day mechanical warranty on this gun. I am researching if the manufacturer’s warranty is still in effect. PLEASE SEE MY OTHER FINE VINTAGE DOUBLES ON THIS WEBSITE. Thanks for looking!
