Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge:

The Savage Fox A Grade shotgun you see here is an odd duck. It’s on Gunbroker.com now with No Reserve. The listing ends 8/25/2019 1:50 PM.

Savage Arms introduced these Savage Fox A Grades a few years ago, and what makes them odd is the fact that the only thing they have in common with a vintage Fox A Grade is the “Fox” name.

Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge:
Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge:

The new Savage Fox A Grade is actually a CSMC RBL with different aesthetics. That’s a good thing because the RBL is a well built, it used the tried-and-true Anson & Deeley-style boxlock action, and features modern metals, modern stock dimensions,  choke tubes, and comes with a case.

Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge:
Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge:

Savage Arms FOX Grade A 20 Gauge: The Savage Arms Fox A Grade is a side by side shotgun. This particular version is chambered in 20 gauge and features a hammer-less Anson Deeley-style box lock action along with Holland & Holland style extractors. The double triggers and case colored receiver add to the overall look. Undoubtedly the precision cut checkered American Black Walnut stock featuring an oil finished is something for the eye to behold. The Fox A Grade side by side is a work of art which belongs in a museum but can happily reside on your arm and in the field with you for years to come. Savage Arms Fox A Grade Side By Side Shotgun, 20 Gauge 28″ barrel. Comes with original box, papers etc. It’s in unfired like new condition.

Auction alert: 8-gauge Ralph Grant SxS plus ammo …

8 gauge Ralph Grant Boxlock SxS shotgun
8 gauge Ralph Grant Boxlock SxS shotgun

Here’s something you almost never see for sale in the U.S: A modern 8g SxS shotgun. It’s on Gunbroker.com now and the online auction ends on 2/4/2019 @ 8:30 PM.

These days, 8-gauge shotguns are mythical beasts, like Gryphons or a Hydras.  But at the end of the 19th century and into the first part of the 20th, good-quality 8 gauge shotguns were common up and down the Eastern seaboard and anywhere in the US where guys hunted waterfowl. And no, they weren’t used as “market” guns. Instead, they were used to pass shoot ducks, geese, and swans at long ranges.

8 gauge Ralph Grant Boxlock SxS shotgun
8 gauge Ralph Grant Boxlock SxS shotgun

Unfortunately, in the 1930s the Federal Government outlawed the use of 8 gauges on migratory birds, and that killed demand for them. Today, some states allow you to use them for turkeys and predator hunting. Others state don’t allow you to hunt with them at all.

That being said, the 8 gauges have always had a following in the UK and they remain legal. This gun was made to meet that demand. Built in Spain and imported into Great Britain, it found its way over here. Now you have the chance to bring it home.

Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun

“Fair price” and “Parker shotgun” aren’t words see near each other very often — especially when a Parker is a sixteen-gauge DHE. But from what I can see, that’s just how I would describe the SxS you see here.

Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun
Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun

This 16 gauge Parker DHE looks like it’s in decent shape. If that’s the case, $4250 is a very fair price for it.

The DHE was Parker’s entry-level, “custom gun” (meaning it had to be custom ordered from the factory) and the company considered it “The Best Gun Value of Which We Know.”

Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun
Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun

Parker DHE 16ga Side-by-Side Double Barrel Shotgun: This good condition Parker was manufactured in 1910, it has 2 1/2″ chambers and automatic ejectors. The barrel is 28″ choke improved modified/ modified. The LOP is 14 1/4, DAH is 2 7/8 and DAC is 1 3/4, weight is 6lb 14oz. The 14 1/4 LOP is to end of the pad and the gun is on a 1 frame. I do have a Parker Gun Club letter for the gun, it was ordered by the Tufts Lyons Arms Co. of Los Angeles Ca. on October 22, 1908.

The Hawkins recoil pad was added to the gun. There is still 95% finish on the barrel, looks to be original and 30% muted case color. The quality refinished wood has crisp checkering with small dings. The only issue that I know of is a repair on the forearm a small crack that was professionally repaired, you have to look for it. Price: $4250

Good gun alert: 20g Browning SxS, straight grip …

Browning BSS BOXLOCK SXS 20GA
Browning BSS BOXLOCK SXS 20GA

Sure Browning is famous for their Superposed and Citori OUs, and their A5 autoloaders.

But the company also “made” some great SxSs. I say “made” because Browning had their SxSs built by another company (just like they did with their OUs). For the BSS, that copy was Miroku in Japan.

Browning offered the Miroku-made BSS from 1971 to 1988. With a straight grip and a slim forend, the gun you see here is a Sporter model, which was Browning lightweight version of this gun. These doubles are great for grouse, woodcock, and qual, and at this price, this one is a fair deal.

E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR
E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR

E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR: BOTH GUNS ARE THE SAME DIMENSIONS, 28″ SOLID RIB, CHOKED .007″ AND .014″ with 2 3/4″ CHAMBERS, DOUBLE TRIGGERS, EJECTORS, FIELD FOREARM, PISTOL GRIP, CHECKERED BUTT MINT CONDITION MAKERS CASE, 7 LBS 4 0Z, DIMENSIONS: 2″ DAH,1 9/16″ DAC, 14 1/8″ LOP. Matched pair E.J. Churchill O/U The Premier Quality.  12 Bore game guns.  Gun I made in 1926, Gun II Made in 1929. Serial Nr. 4220 was made for Abercrombie & Fitch and 3173 for a Mr. Wilson in San Francisco. They were both originally pigeon guns with 32” barrels. They were matched up as a pair and re-barreled to 28” through Churchill, Atkin, Grant & Lang, and Don Masters chocked IC/M and probably restocked by the maker, work which was done for a Danish nobleman whose coat of arms are on the escutcheon.  Both guns have a full London proof.  The actions of these guns are exact copies of the Woodward O&U actions, and were made by the firm of Hills, who also made the actions for Woodward. It was said at the time that Woodward built the Over & Under guns for Bob Churchill. This may be indeed true, but it is not likely, I believe Hill did all the actioning and in addition, they both used the same outworkers. A marked difference is the ejector system, which differs from Woodward and shows the Churchill input, as Bob Churchill felt it needed improvement. In total only 15 Over & Under guns were built by Churchill before WWII, of which this pair is believed to be in the best condition of those remaining.  One of these guns is pictured in the book “The House of Churchill” by Don Masters. Price: $46,500
