PHILLY GUN, 1 OF 202 MADE, 65% FACTORY CASE COLOR, RARE GUN!

General Specs: Fox, Year 1925, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 7oz, SxS

Serial Number: 302095

The A.H. Fox C Grade guns are considered by many to be the most attractive of the Fox guns. There are higher grades but the C Grade engraving is elegant. This is a rare gun, as they only produced 305 C Grade Fox guns in 16ga. and only 202 in Philly made guns. This fine Philly Fox, sn302095 made in 1925, is in excellent condition with lots of factory case color, nicely figured factory English walnut stock, crisp clear engraving, 26” number 3 weight barrels, choked IC/LM (barrels appear to be later FACTORY replaced barrels with proper serial numbers, Savage proof marks, and the gauge and chamber length stamp that started after about 1936, perfectly fit to the gun), lots of wall thickness, strong well timed ejectors, 14” LOP to factory butt plate, 2 5/8” drop at heel, with recent hand rubbed oil finish, perfect screws, action tight with lever well right of center, all coming together to make a really clean little Fox with lots to like. Anyone who has handled the Fox 16ga. graded guns realize they are all built on the 20 gauge frame and are light and finely balanced double guns that are a delight to carry afield. What a great little gun for all of your upland needs and sporting clays when those vintage shoots come up. The Fox CE 16ga. is highly sought after and the values continue to rise, so don’t let this one get away from you. Thanks for looking!
