If you’re a Fox fan, grab a towel: This 20 gauge Philly Sterlingworth is gonna make you drool. It looks brand new and 100% original. And if that wasn’t enough, it has ejectors and 28″ barrels, making it one of the toughest Sterlies to find.
Ironmen Arms & Antiques just had it, and I remember the price was pretty high. If you’re looking for American doubles, I would keep an eye on the Ironmen site. They handle a lot of nice American doubles, and most of them sell pretty fast.
