A.H. Fox Gun Co. was the last to introduce a single barrel trap gun to the market near the end of 1919. A very stoutly built gun with special attention to chamber, bore, and choke, they have a reputation of throwing outstanding patterns and breaking birds with the best of even modern-day guns. There were just 581 Fox SBT's made in all grades, with most of them as J Grades, totaling 410 of that number. THERE WERE ONLY 75 MADE IN THE HIGHER GRADE “K GRADE” WITH ORNATE FLORAL AND VINE ENGRAVING, RICHLY FIGURED WALNUT WITH RIBBON ADORNED CHECKEREING. That is a very low number indeed. and as such, a great investment in a fine trap gun that will hold its own against all comers at the trap line! This Philly made K Grade is in superb condition, with its 32” Chromox Fluid Steel barrel measuring full choke with an excellent shiny bore, 48 thousandths minimum wall thickness, factory over-bored at .738 bore diameter, 98% factory blue, 2 5/8” chamber (o.k. to shoot 2 ¾” shells, if you don’t know why, ask---we can lengthen chamber and forcing cone within 7 days of purchase if you so choose), and double ivory beads still intact. The barrel is still tight on the breech face and hinge pin like a new gun with the top lever well right of center. The action is a pleasant nickel-like finish with little case color remaining and the beautiful engraving still sharp and crystal clear. The photos show what looks like minor rust or pitting on the bottom of the receiver but that is not the case in person…just the tiniest evidence of freckling in that area. The trigger breaks clean at 3.5lbs. pull and the ejector is strong and timed. The wood is factory original to the gun and we just finished restoring the finish and recutting the checkering. These guns shipped with a factory pad and this gun had a rock-hard Silvers pad on it that was badly mushroomed at the heel, so we installed a genuine Silvers pad machined to ¾” overall thickness leaving a 14 ½” LOP to the rear position single trigger. These guns were made to shoot and will literally compete with the finest trap gun produced, now or then. With such a low number made and an ever-increasing interest in A.H. Fox guns made in Philadelphia, these guns continue to gain value as you enjoy their use. The opportunity to buy a SBT in a K Grade is rare indeed, so don’t hesitate! Thanks for looking.
