The A.H. Fox Sterlingworth is about as basic a shotgun as you’ll find. Introduced in 1910, Sterlingworths were great deals in their day. Hunters recognized this and bought thousands of them.
Fox added the Skeet and Upland Game Gun to the Sterlingworth lineup in 1935. it was designed to “…meet the demand for a moderately priced skeet and upland game double gun”. Skeet was new then, having been invented in 1920 by a grouse hunter from Andover, MA. The game boomed and by the ’1930s, makers offered shotguns tailored for the sport.
