Fox Sterlingworth 16 Gauge SxS Shotgun
PHILLY GUN, NICE CONDITION BUTT PLATE
Most will agree the Fox Sterlingworth 16ga. is the best value for a fine small gauge vintage American double in today's marketplace bate. Always built on the 20ga. frame, balanced delightfully between the hands, weighing just 5lbs. 13oz., this particular Sterlingworth, sn356404 built in 1920, is better than most in that it was built during the early years with great care for wood to metal fit, checkering, and overall fit and finish. The gun has seen use over the 94 years it has done its job, but has been well cared for, with no cracks or repairs, mirror bores, excellent 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. Stock can be bent to your stock dimensions, within reason. 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.
