If you’re a Fox fan, these two SxSs are going to make you drool. One’s a 16g and the other’s a 12g. Both look like CEs, and they’re coming to auction this Friday, May 20, @ Cottone Auctions.

Fox considered the CE to be a high-grade gun. In 1931, retailers asked $100 for it — more than twice the price of Sterlingworth with ejectors and a little less than a Parker GHE. The same year, a sidelock W. & C. Scott Premier cost $1,000.

Today, CE grade Foxes like the ones you see here are very collectible — especially the 16g. Fox made very few of them, and to see two with this kind of original condition is a treat.

  1. THATS A PAIR OF TRUE BEAUTIES IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD…………THE 16 GAUGE IS SUCH A RARE JEWEL….SOMEBODY IS GOINT TO BE A TRULY HAPPY OWNER….THANKS FOR SHOWING THEM…….

  2. Did you happen to see how much they went for? I didn’t register and can’t see the sold price.

  3. I don’t know how much they went for. As soon as they post the prices realized, I’ll put them up.

    The 16g was sweet. But that stock looked like it had a lot of drop in it…

    Take care,
