We live in an off-the-rack world. But you’re one of a kind, right? So sometimes it’s nice to have something that’s made just for you. I think that explains some of the popularity behind upgraded and customized classic American shotguns. Gunsmiths like Dewey Vicknair and Dennis Potter have earned a following for this kind of work. When you see the guns they’re creating, it’s easy to understand why.

A Fox Sterlingworth is an excellent platform for this kind of work. Upgraded or made into something fully custom, a Sterlie is a simple, elegant shotgun that can be taken in a lot of directions. With a little work, the one you see here could be turned into the perfect grouse and upland gun. With a lot of work, it could be turned into your own custom masterpiece, a shotgun that is as close to perfect as you care to make it.
