Description: Fox Sterlingworth 20 Gauge SxS Shotgun


General Specs: A.H. Fox, Year 1925, 20 Gauge, 5lb 14oz, Side by Side

Serial Number: 257675

Most will agree the Fox Sterlingworth 20ga. is the best value for a fine small gauge vintage American double in today's marketplace bate. Built on a tiny 20ga. frame, therefore lighter than like guns from Parker, L.C. Smith, or Ithaca, dynamically balanced and this one weighing just 5lbs. 14oz., the Sterlingworth is still an affordable field and clays gun with the handling and shooting characteristics of a much more expensive gun. This particular Sterlingworth sn257675 is a Philly gun built with great care for wood to metal fit, checkering, and overall fit and finish. The gun has seen use over the 89 years it has done its job, but has been well cared for, with no cracks or repairs, mirror bores, perfect screws, and the original butt plate. Priced affordably, it is a great bird or clays gun for your rainy days or rough terrain and will function flawlessly as you enjoy carrying a piece of American history. Most Sterlingworths have excessive drop at heel and comb, but this one is quite reasonable and shootable for most average American shooters. If you like a "pretty gun" this one is a perfect candidate for a full restoration, as it is all in great condition wood and metal wise. Of course, that can be done through our shop for as little as $1200 added cost even with Turnbull case colors.
