Fox Sterlingworths are easy to find. That’s because A.H. Fox made a ton of them. Even the small bores — the 16 gauges and the 20 gauges — are pretty common.
Regardless of the gauge, most of the Sterlies you see out there are similar – pistol grips, non-ejectors, 26″ or 28″ barrels. So once you throw in ejectors and squeeze the barrels out to 30″, you’re dealing with a Sterlingworth that’s much harder to find–especially in 16 gauge.
Well, here is one of those hard-to-find A.H. Fox Sterlingworth SxSs in 16 gauge, with 30″ barrels and ejectors. It’s a Savage-era Fox with 2 3/4″ chambers and high dimensions, so it’s more shootable than Fox’s earlier doubles. The price is fair, too.
