12 gauge Savage - Fox Sterlingworth Skeet & Upland Game Double Barrel Shotgun

12 gauge Savage – Fox Sterlingworth Skeet & Upland Game Double Barrel Shotgun

Here’s another 12 gauge Fox Sterlingworth Skeet & Upland Game that just hit the market.  Fox added the Skeet & Upland Game Gun to their line in 1935 to “…meet the demand for a moderately priced skeet and upland game double gun”. They were offered in 12, 16 & 20 gauge, and with 26″ & 28″ barrels.

This was delivered in 1935, so it’s one of the first Skeet & Upland Game Guns that Fox/Savage Arms made. It looks pretty used, and the price seems high. But I bet it will be done in a few days.  Guys really want these doubles, and there aren’t that many of them out there.

Here are the details on it from the seller:

    Do you think the straight stock is original? The gun has a short trigger tang; on many/most shotguns with a straight stock, the trigger tang is long. I don’t know whether this is true of the Fox Sterlingworth. Thanks. Stanley

    Stanley-
    All the original Skeet & Upland games that I’ve seen have been like that.

    I’ve never seen one with a long trigger guard.

    Thanks for the comment.
