THE SAVAGE FOX MODEL B - 16GA - 2 3/4 - SIDE BY SIDE - ENGRAVED - CASE HARDENING
This is more than a shotgun... it's a work of art. Look at that beautifully engraved Fox on the bottom of the case hardened receiver. The rich brown tones and streaks of colors give the etchings life. But besides it being extremely artistically detailed and a paradigm of skilled craftsmanship, it is a timeless and dependable shotgun. A solid performer not known to malfunction, it is the epitome of form meets function. It's thing of beauty and efficient reliability. Great for the trophy rack or out among the fields of pussy willow tracking game.
"Savage Arms purchased the A.H. Fox Company in November of 1929... the resulting gun, named the Fox Model B was introduced... It was to be a long lived model, remaining in the Savage line until rising manufacturing costs and the sale and reorganization of Savage Industries, Inc. (which became today's Savage Arms Company) caused it to be discontinued in 1988... All Fox Model B guns came with "select" American black walnut stocks and forends. The wood that I have seen on these guns varied from plain to semi-fancy. A glossy wood finish was standard. These are short tang guns and a through bolt retains the stock. The forend is held in place by a self-adjusting spring tension latch that does not loosen with use... The Fox Model B had a long production run and many were produced in numerous variations. They are still in widespread use today and are often seen in gun dealers' used racks. These guns were solid performers in their day and they still are. They seldom malfunction and they are usually easy to repair when they do... The number of Savage/Fox doubles still in use is a testament to their solid design and the quality materials used in their construction."
