Fox AE Grade 12 Gauge – 30” WATERFOWLER, FACTORY SPECIAL ORDER, vintage firearms inc  Guns > Shotguns > Fox Shotguns
Description: Fox, Year 1928, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 15oz, SN#32970

There are a LOT of 12ga. A Grade Fox guns available to own so how do you choose which one to buy? Most have been restocked, poorly restored, heavily used, with buggered up screws from hack gunsmithing attempts, or have characteristics that just don’t fit your needs. It is rare when you find a Fox that has been preserved in its original configuration and HAS 14 ¾” LOP TO A BUTTPLATE FROM THE FACTORY AND GORGEOUS EUROPEAN WALNUT. For investment and enjoyment of use, finding Fox guns remaining in the “as shipped” configuration is what makes the most sense. This is what we have here in this Fox AE Grade 12ga., sn32970 built in Philadelphia PA in 1928. This special-order Fox came from the factory as a HEAVY WEIGHT GUN, LIKELY A WATERFOWLER, with wood that is much more figured than most A Grade guns, and ordered with MODERN STOCK DIMENSIONS AND A 15 ¼” LOP TO A FACTORY PAD. The pad was mushroomed and hard as a rock, so we installed a buttplate and still retained a long LOP. PLEASE NOTE: THE DARK FIGURE ON THE WRIST ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BUTTSTOCK. THIS IS A NATURAL PART OF THE WOOD WHERE A BRANCH HAD GROWN IN THAT PART OF THE TREE AND IS NOT A REPAIR. IT HAS BEEN SOLID FOR 92 YEARS AND IS NOT A STRUCTUAL ISSUE, BUT A NATURAL CHARACTERISTIC OF THE WOOD. This Fox has high condition, shipped with 30” barrels with mirror shiny bores, 100% rust blue, #1 weight contours (the heaviest contour made), choked M/F. The action retains 75% factory case color, engraving still sharp, with perfect screws, a trigger guard retaining 70% of the factory charcoal blue, mechanics excellent, barrels tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face, all in superb working order. This is a VFI CERTIFIED GUN, meaning we stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest part, cleaned all in the Ultrasonic cleaner, scrubbed each part and inspected all for function and integrity, properly lubricated and reassembled. VFI CERTIFIED guns have a 90-day mechanical warranty. THIS IS THE KIND OF GUN THAT THE WATERFOWLERS, TURKEY HUNTERS, WILD PHEASANT HUNTERS, AND SPORTING CLAYS FANS SEEK OUT FOR THEIR SPORT. You can see on the factory order card that the gun is just as shipped with the exception of the recoil pad, which we eliminated as the stock was plenty long without it. IF YOU ARE A VERY TALL MAN, THIS IS YOUR GUN AS WE CAN ADD A PAD AND GET THE LOP TO 15 ½”! With all the vintage sporting clays shoots popping up across the country, this is a great Fox to show off at the club. You deserve a fine A.H. Fox for this year’s hunting season, so don’t hesitate. It will be a long time before another Fox like this one shows itself for sale. This is a gun you can use and enjoy, and it will continue to gain value. Thanks for looking!
