A couples friends of mine are crazy about muzzleloading Purdeys. Take a look at this one and you’ll see why.

Here’s a great way to start an affair with nice American doubles. With 28″ barrels and what looks like an all-original finish, this Fox Sterlingworth is nice. And the price  –$1095 — makes is even nicer. From 1910 to about 1940, A.H. Fox and then the Savage Arms Company built around 140,000 Sterlingworths. Most were 12 gauges, […]
