The side-by-sides made by A.H. Fox as classic and American as double-barrel shotguns get. A.H. Foxes came in a number of grades. The Sterlingworths were their entry level shotguns. Today, they’re the ones you see all the time on the used markets. Fox’s graded doubles go from A to F. There’s no E, and there’s also an X.

In all these grades, twenty gauges are the toughest to find. ¬†From 1912 to 1940, A.H. Fox made fewer than 4,000 graded 20s of them. That means the 20 gauge A Grade you see here is pretty rare side by side. And even though it has had some “refreshing” done to it, it’s still a nice little shotgun.
