Ithaca 7E Double Barrel SxS Shotgun, 12 Gauge
Ithaca 7E Double Barrel SxS Shotgun, 12 Gauge

Ithaca 7E Double Barrel SxS Shotgun, 12 Gauge: This is the first 7E Grade Ithaca we have ever seen, which is understandable since there were only 22 or 25 ever manufactured.  According to Walter C. Snyder, an Historian of the Ithaca Gun Company, this shotgun was shipped to an undisclosed location on 12/5/44.  The condition is superb, as one might expect from such a high grade shotgun, it shows almost no wear or evidence of use.  The blue and case-colors are near 100%, the bores are perfect and the highly figured American Walnut stock is ornately checkered and is in near new condition.  It appears that the only non-original part is a proper “sunburst” Ithaca marked reproduction recoil pad.  The case hardened receiver is highly engraved and has six gold inlays including 2 ducks, 2 pheasants, a dog holding a duck and a bald eagle complete with a white gold head.  The shotgun is fitted with ejectors, double gold plated triggers, and the barrels are 28 inches in length, choked full and full (0040″ + .0040″).  The stock dimensions are: 14 inch length-of-pull, 2 3/4 inch drop at the heel and 1 3/4 inch drop at the comb.  The weight is 7 lbs. 13 oz.   The 7E Grade Ithaca is one of the rarest of all American Doubles and it would be hard to find a better one.  Comes with a letter from the Chronicler of the Ithaca Gun Company dated 9/5/07.  Price: $35,000

A.H. Fox XE, SxS Shotgun, Two Barrel Set:
A.H. Fox XE, SxS Shotgun, Two Barrel Set:

A.H. Fox XE, SxS Shotgun, Two Barrel Set: This is an A.H. Fox XE 12 gauge shotgun, with a 2nd barrel set fit by Turnbull Restoration. This classic American double gun carries serial number 29317, and is dated from 1924. Metal restoration was performed by Turnbull, and included light polishing, engraving was not re-cut (see photos); color case hardening of receiver, top lever and forend iron/latch; trigger reshaped to mid-position; both sets of barrels were polished and rust blued by us. The Fox has been utilized by its owner since restoration, so it does carry some handling marks. This Fox’s original barrel set is 28″ in length. A 2nd barrel set at 26″ was fit by Turnbull Restoration and engraved to match the original set. Wood condition is very good with minor handling marks. We did not work on this Fox’s wood, and appears to have been refinished by a 3rd party at some point. We replaced the original broken grip cap. 28″ barrel set (original): Cylinder/Improved Cylinder, 2-1/2″ chambers. 26″ heavey barrel set: Improved Cylinder/Modified, 3″ chambers with long forcing cones. Price: $20,000
