Another odd Fox – a 12g Sterlingworth with a straight grip…

Here’s another head scratcher: A 12 gauge Fox Sterlingworth double barrel shotgun with a straight, English-style stock.

Fox did make Sterlingworth with straight gripped stocks. Called the Skeet & Upland Game Game it was Savage-era gun introduced in 1935. But this is a Philadelphia gun made around 1926. So where did the gun get that English style stock?

So where did the stock come from? It must be a replacement – maybe done at the factory. Original or not, I think it looks nice and makes this Sterlie a great all around shooter. Here’s more about this SxS from the seller:

  1. Greg,
    I have a 16 gauge Sterlingworth Skeet Gun made in 1929 with a straight stock. It has double Ivory beads and the trigger guard is typically very long as found on most straight stocked guns. It has 28 inch barrels and weighs 6 lbs. It has been shot and handled very little and even the case coloring remains very bright. It is one of the nicest Fox’s that I have ever handled.

  2. Tim-

    Thanks for the comment. Sounds like a nice gun. Does it letter that way? I owned a 20g Skeet & Upland Game in near mint original condition. It has a stubby little triggerguard.
