Description: Year 1918, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 4oz, SN# 300823

The A.H. Fox C Grades are considered by many to be the most attractive of the Fox guns. There are higher grades, but the C Grade engraving is elegant. The 16ga. C Grade is a rare gun, as they only produced 305 C Grade Fox guns in 16ga. and only 202 came from the Philadelphia factory. 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. Weighing just 6 1/4lbs., this CE Fox sn300823 built in 1918, is a wand in hand. Most Fox collectors are aware that the engraving from this era is superior to later or earlier Fox CE guns you will see. The wood-to-metal fit is perfect, as are the screws. The barrels are tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face, with perfect mirror bores and the top lever well right of center. The 28” Chromox Steel barrels are #3 weight barrels and are factory choked M/F (we can alter them to your needs within a few days of purchase). This Fox CE has been restocked with nicely figured English walnut with perfect checkering and inletting…truly quality work. This is the kind of wood that bends easily, so if you need the stock tweaked to fit your dimensions we do that here as well. THIS IS A VFI CERTIFIED GUN, WITH A 90 DAY MECHANICAL WARRANTY. We have stripped the action and forend iron to their smallest parts, cleaned in the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all for integrity and function, properly lubricated all and reassembled. You can have confidence in a VFI CERTIFIED Fox and know that it is spotless inside and out. Who else provides a 90-day warranty on a 101-year-old gun? What a great Fox gun for all your upland needs and sporting clays when those vintage shoots come up. We have this fine Fox at a very affordable price point, so it should make somebody a fine new gun for the 2019 upland bird season! Let’s make it yours! 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!
