A.H. Fox CE Grade SxS Shotgun ~ 20 GA

A.H. Fox CE Grade SxS Shotgun ~ 20 GA

Here are two rare doubles that Cabela’s recently listed. CE-grade Fox shotguns are not easy to find — especially in 16 & 20 gauge. That being said, I think these two are priced very aggressively. Even though they appear to be in nice, original condition, $20,000 is a lot to for either one — especially the 16.

Here’s more about A.H. Fox C-grade shotguns from the Fox Collectors website”

FROM: “The FOX GUN” ( A.H. Fox “Wood Grain” Catalog A.H. Fox Gun Company, Philadelphia, Pa.)

A.H. Fox CE Grade SxS Shotgun ~ 16 GA

A.H. Fox CE Grade SxS Shotgun ~ 16 GA

This is the grade that has made good everywhere. In every respect it is a high grade.

It’s beauty in looks and finish. No gun will stand up better to hard work. Its every detail is perfect. And at the price it is in a class absolutely by itself.

THE BARRELS are a high quality of Chromox Fluid Steel. They are guaranteed both for accurate shooting and great strength. THE STOCK is a choice selection of dark, curly Walnut. The grain is beautifully brought out in the hand rubbed oil finish. THE ENGRAVING is the work of an artist. It stands out clear and beautiful in design. THE CHECKERING is of fine diamond pattern on grip, panels and forend.

The regular “CE” Grade FOX is equipped with automatic ejector. We carry in stock with half or full pistol grip, but will be made to order at no extra charge with straight grip.

    Something seems strange about the DAH measurements. The photos can be very misleading, but the 16 certainly doesn’t look like 3″ drop (especially when you compare it to the 2.5″ DAH on the 20 gauge). Wonder why a seller would go through Cabela’s. Seems like a seller who had such desirable guns would do better through the listservs.

  2. Gregg says:

    Yeah – I don’t know why they would go through Cabela’s. The same Cabela’s also has a 12g CE in the same kind of condition, and all three of the guns were listed as a set for $50,000. They broke them up last week, and the 12 sold right away.

    Thanks for the comment.
