A couple days ago I put up a post about a 16g Parker DHE on an O frame. That double is one of the grails of grouse hunting. The one you see here is another. While maybe not as coveted as the Parker, it’s still a SxS a lot of guys wish they could carry in October.

Most of the 16g Foxes you’ll see out there are Sterlingworths. Graded, 16-gauge Foxes side-by-sides are scarce shotguns. This is just one of the 3800 or so 16g shotguns A.H. Fox made in grades A-F. This one, made around 1932-33, also has 30″ barrels, which makes it even scarcer.
