Of all the A.H. Fox Sterlingworth shotguns ever made, the model you see here is one of the hardest to find. The Sterlingworth Skeet and Upland Game Gun was introduced in 1935. Skeet was new sport then, having been invented in 1920 by Charles Davis, a grouse hunter from Andover, MA.
In 1926, William Harnden Foster introduced Skeet to America with an article in the February issue of National Sportsman and Hunting and Fishing magazine. The game boomed in popularity and by the ’30s makers offers shotguns tailored for the sport.
