The most extraordinary Fox Shotgun upgrade Extant – A Grade Special Made for W.H. Gough with nearly a dozen Gold Inlays- Truly Exceptional!!!: Easily the most extraordinary and exceptional A.H. Fox shotgun we know of is serial number 6500, made for W.H. Gough.  This gun, an exact duplicate of the the original is truly the epitome of the gun makers art.  This gun, also serial number 6500, made with 30″ Krupp fluid steel barrels that have a fully hand engraved top rib and floral scroll wedges at the muzzle ends as well as gold inlays and 3″ floral scroll wedges at the breech.  The gun has a splinter forend, capped ball grip, gold plated double triggers, auto ejectors, and auto safety.  The gun is completely and fully engraved in exact duplication of serial number 6500 with full Gough floral scroll throughout the frame.  Gold “SAFE” in front of safety as well as gold inscription on top rib which reads “Built Expressly for W.H. Gough by A.H. Fox Gun Co, Philadelphia, PA”. This gun was made with extraordinary European Walnut stocks which are fabulously carved in leafy and floral patterns.  The butt terminates with a 1/2″ full leather covered pad.  Ball grip with incredible horn and gold cap.  The quality of the workmanship on this gun cannot be overstated. This gun is truly a display of what can be done, when no expense is spared in the art of gunmaking.  The gold inlays speak for themselves and the beauty of this gun cannot be overstated. If you are someone who is only satisfied by “the very best” look no further.  The cost of the work on this gun would far exceed $100k if done today, and the original gun is not obtainable at 2 or 3x that amount. This gun is offered at $64,500 plus shipping and insurance to your FFL. Price: $64,500
