Sterlingworth Co. Fox  Guns > Shotguns > Fox Shotguns
Description: Very early A.H. Fox "Sterlingworth Company" 12 gauge. This is the first and only year of production for the precursor to the Sterlingworth. These are commmonly called (hinge) pin guns because they have the recessed hinge like a Parker. These are of noticable higher quality finish than the successive Sterlingworths - radiused frames, nicer metal polish, wider ribs. Fox had only graded gun parts to work with for the first year (1910-1911) so there is no difference between these and the A grades except a border engraving and the quality of the stock wood. This is a great example of these hard to find early Fox guns. 14 1/4 LOP to front trigger, 1 5/8" drop at comb, 2 7/8" drop at heel. All original except for new Hawkins pad and professional wood refinish. Original 2 5/8" chambers, 30" barrels, F/M chokes. Barrels have original blue at about 85% with a few spots and mottling (see photos). Reciever is very nice with high orignal polish retaining about 40% of the case colors. Stock is good with no cracks or repairs of any kind. Barrels are perfect inside. Action is very tight with lever to right. Shiny bores, no dents or dings. Ribs are solid. This is from my personal Fox shotgun collection, I have carefully selected all my Foxes over several years - no junky clunky guns!!
