Fox Sterlingworth 16 Gauge #370858 - RARE GUN, Skeet & Upland Game

Fox Sterlingworth 16 Gauge Skeet & Upland Game Gun

Of all the A.H. Fox Sterlingworth shotguns ever made, the model you see here is one of the hardest to find.  The Sterlingworth Skeet and Upland Game Gun was introduced in 1935. Skeet was new sport then, having been invented in 1920 by Charles Davis, a grouse hunter from Andover, MA.

In 1926, William Harnden Foster introduced Skeet to America with an article in the February issue of National Sportsman and Hunting and Fishing magazine. The game boomed in popularity and by the ’30s makers  offers shotguns tailored for the sport.

    I’ve got a 16 and I’ll never sell it, not only a great gun but too many memories with it. Still wish I didn’t miss out on your 20!

    I passed on this one about 6 months ago due to the Chicopee Bbls, I’m hopeful the market will deem this one worth the ask though….

    Yeah, we’ll see what it goes for. I sold that 20g of mine for about that much – and mine was all original and in fantastic shape.
