It’s confirmed: Fox collectors are nuts. The auction for this 20g A.H. Fox XE ended Monday, and the final price was $24,002.

Ithaca’s Flues-model shotguns are far from the pretty side-by-sides I’ve ever seen. Clunky and as sleek as a shoe box, they don’t have the snakey look of a Fox or classic proportions of a Parker. But there is something about the Flues that I really like. Check out this 3E Flues you see her to […]

Here’s one of the best deals on a doubles that I’ve seen in a while. This German side-by-side looks like it’s in great original condition. Unless it has a wart I can’t see (thin walls, oversized bores, pitting in the tubes), it’s a steal. It’s made with an Anson & Deeley-style action with a Greener […]
