A. H. FOX, PHIL., B GRADE 12 GAUGE, 30" KRUPP FLUID STEEL BARRELS

A. H. FOX, PHIL., B GRADE 12 GAUGE, 30″ KRUPP FLUID STEEL BARRELS

Here’s the best advice I ever got about collecting shotguns: Buy the most original condition you can afford. People always want good, original guns — especially American guns — and a nice, unmessed-with SxS or O/U always holds its value.  Also, because so many people insist upon “refinishing” their doubles, good, original shotguns get scarcer every day.

So if I were still crazy about American doubles, I would take a long like at the two you see here. They’re as classic as you can get, and both appear to be nearly all original. Both feature fair prices, too, and the Lefever looks like it could be a deal.
