Minty A.H. Fox A-grade 20 gauge Double Barrel Side-by-Side Shotgun

Minty A.H. Fox A-grade 20 gauge Double Barrel Side-by-Side Shotgun

When it comes to collecting, original condition rules. The more of it a shotgun has, the more collector’s will pay for it. But some prices can be too high, regardless of how crisp and original an item is. That’s what I thought when I saw this A.H. Fox A-grade.

While it sure looks nice and original, I wonder if someone will pay $7,600 for it. But if you’re a serious Fox collector, the answer is probably yes. After all, when are you going  to see another 20 gauge A grade as nice as this one?

Here’s more about it from the seller:

    A bit of a dreamer!! Maybe with ejectors–SST but doubtful for an extractor gun. It’s priced so they can allow more $$$$ on a trade. Makes the buyer/trader feel better.

    I bought my first Fox (1915 AE grade 16 gauge – 28″ no. 4 barrels) in 1990 for $2200. Hard to find one in shootable condition for that price today. Prices of desirable things that had limited production seem to go up.

    On the other hand, I traded a 16 bore Harkom BLE for a 1912 C grade Fox 16 (28″ no.4 barrels) a few years ago. I felt I got the better deal. So it sometimes happens that buying (or, in my case, trading) with someone who is not a dealer can work out well.

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    I’m sure this one will go up in value. But it may take a while for it to reach $7600. And if you use it at all, it will hit that mark at an even slower pace.

    Bill – interesting perspective on the trade. I think your 100% correct. That explains a lot of the high prices that that dealer has.
