A.H. Fox "A" Grade 12 bore, Philly SxS Shotgun, 32" bbls

A.H. Fox “A” Grade 12 bore, Philly SxS Shotgun, 32″ bbls

It’s rare that a twelve-gauge, A-grade Fox excites me. But when I saw this one, I started doing the mental math to figure out how to pay for it. With it’s straight grip and 32″ barrels, it’s an unusual A grade.

But even though the gun looks right, that butt stock has me scratching my head. Is it really original? Te fact that it’s “cast on” for a lefty raises questions. If I were going to add this SxS to my safe, I would be sure to take a much closer look at it (and probably order a letter from The A.H. Fox Collector’s Club).

    Like you Gregg, this 32″ barreled gun caught my eye the other day. The first thing that jumped off at me (being no Fox expert) is what looks like rather crude engraving on the top of the rib extension where is mates with the breech.

    Seems to have a sort of “Flintstone’s” quality about it. Does that look right to you?

    I think that’s right.

    Check this out for comparison:

    But the cast in the stock throws me. Perhaps someone ordered it that way or perhaps they bent the stock. I would want to see a pic of the triggerguard, too. It should be a long one if the straight grip is original.

    Thanks for the comment.
