This 20g Fox is an odd duck. While it’s a great looking SxS with nice wood on it, the stock’s wrong for a Sterlingworth.
Most Fox Sterlingworths had pistol grip stocks. Some came with straight stocks. None were offered with round-knob stocks like you see on this 20. Fox offered round-knob stocks, but reserved them for their other models–A-grades and up.
But…the stock on this Sterlingworth looks right for a Fox. So how did it get there? It may have been special ordered, the gun may maybe have gone back to the factoy for it, or this Sterlingworth may have been restocked by someone who really knew what they were doing.
Regardless, this little 20g side-by-side is a nice gun. With ejectors it’s rare, too. Overall, I think it’s a good deal.
