In their day, these SxSs were the pinnacle of gunmaking, and two of the most expensive shotguns in the world. Today, they’re rare, and still cost a fortune. From what I can see, no one has messed them up by trying to refresh or restore them.

Eight gauges — the double whopper with cheese of shotguns. In the 19th and early 20th century, ones like this LC Smith were used by waterfowlers up and down the East Coast for long range shots at ducks, Canada Geese and Swans.
This LC Smith is a Quality No. 2 made in the late 1890s. Like all American-made 8s, it’s a rare shotgun. According to the LC Smith collector’s site, LC Smith made just thirty-eight 8 gauge shotguns No. 2. Even though this was a lower middle-grade gun when it was new, it was still expensive. And because it was so specialized a gun, whoever bought it must have been very into waterfowling.
I love the gun’s gigantic, boulder-size fences and genuine wear. It looks very original and like it hasn’t been messed with it all.

Last spring Caeser Guerini sent me one of these shotguns in 20 gauge to look over and bang some rounds through. It was a great gun and a blast to shoot. Here’s what impressed me most about it:
5 things to love about the FABARM Autumn SxS:
1. IT’S EASY ON THE EYES
My FABARM Autumn was a great double to admire with a rounded, color-case hardened action, some interesting scroll engraving, and nicely figured, oil-finished wood, While it had a vintage vibe to it, its clean, pinless action gave it a sleek, modern look.
2. IT’S BUILT TO SHOOT TONS OF ROUNDS AND KEEP GOING
On the outside, the FABARM Autumn looks like an old-school, Anson & Deeley style boxlock shotgun. But it’s not.
Instead, the gun mounts the lockwork on its triggerplate and uses sliding rods to cock the hammers.
Then there’s the real interesting part of the FABARM Autumn: its quad-lug system.
These 4 lumps are designed to increase the longevity of the barrel/action connection and help you deliver quicker, more accurate second shots. How?
Even though we worship SxSs like Parkers and Purdeys, those guns, and others like them, have their weaknesses. One’s the way the barrels mount on the action.
These shotguns connect to the action with two lumps. The front lump has the hook. This catches the hingepin. The rear lump has a bite. This receives a sliding bolt that comes in from the back to lock down the barrels (most British and European SxSs also have a bite on the front lump, but it doesn’t always do much to secure the bbls).
When you fire a SxS, the barrels twist horizontally and flex vertically, trying to pivot on the hinge pin. Even though the bolt, bites and action secure the barrels and resist this twisting and flexing, these forces pulls you off your target. And over time, they cause wear which can lead to a SxS’s barrels going off face and become loose on the action.
The FABARM Autumn quad-lump design displaces this twisting and flexing over more surface area. This helps cut down on wear and increases the longevity of the barrel/action connection.
The quad-lug system also stabilizes the barrels and cuts down on horizontal flexing. This is an idea borrowed from competitive pigeon shooting and the thinking is that it helps you deliver a quicker, more accurate shot with the left barrel.
3. IT FEELS GREAT
A few years ago I shot a 12g Purdey Trigger Plate OU. It was big gun that came in at just over 8 lbs, but it had a lively feel that belied its weight and encouraged me to shoot it all day.
A few months later I was I hunting with a new 20g Italian OU. It was a field gun, and even though it weighed 6 3/4 lbs, it felt heavy and dead, like a target gun. I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible.
I thought about those guns the first time I shot the 20g FABARM Autumn. How would it feel — dead or alive?
My gun had 28″ barrels and weighed 6 lbs, 6 oz. — a good weight for an all-around bird gun. But it also pistol grip stock and a beavertail forend. Those said “target” to me — and had me worried.
After a lot of clays and a flat of 2 3/4″, 7/8 oz loads (which were a PITA to find), I had my answer: alive and very lively.
Like that big Purdey OU, the FABARM Autumn snapped to my shoulder and and picked up the clays with little effort. The more I shot it, the more I wanted to shoot it. I think its lightweight barrels were a big reason for this, but not the only one.
I liked the pistol-grip, beavertail forend setup, too. They gave me a lot to hold onto and more control over the gun more. This made the gun easier to mount and move to target.
The selective single trigger was crisp and with just a of whisker play in it on second shots. And even though I pulled it as fast as I could and tried to make it fail, it fired round after round without a problem.
4. IT’S ALL YOU NEED FOR UPLAND HUNTING
With 3″ chambers, choke tubes and barrels/choke tubes that are steel-shot safe, the 20g FABARM Autumn I had could handle all the bird hunting I did (or hoped to do).
If you’re an upland hunter, it could do the same for you.
5. IT’S BACKED BY A 5-YEAR WARRANTY
I’ve had old guns, older guns, and really old guns. They can be a PITA to maintain and repair. So I appreciate new, trouble-free new SxSs and OUs.
But of course, things do break. When they do, it’s good to know the gun is backed by a warranty, especially one with repair centers in the US.

Fox BE 16 Gauge – 1 of 186, HIGH FACTORY CONDITION, vintage firearms inc: Year 1919, 16 Gauge, 6lbs, Chokes M/F, LOP 14 1/8″, DAH 2 7/16″, DAC 1 7/16″ Serial Number: 300966 You will see the word “RARE” used in many ads from guys trying to sell their guns. Most of the time it is simply a word. The gun is not rare at all. The B Grade Fox small bore, cataloged for only 6 years, is indeed “RARE”. Small bore guns were not produced until 1912, and the B Grade was discontinued in the catalog offerings in 1918, with only 186 ever produced. Considering that as many as 15% may have left planet Earth due to damage and loss, there are likely only 160 or so in existence, and so very few of those are “as shipped” and intact. In all the years spent in search of quality American double shotguns, I have only seen a dozen B Grade 16ga. guns. I bought and sold 6 of them, presently have 3 ready to sell, and the rest were not worth owning. This Fox BE 16, sn300966 shipped in 1919, RETAINS ALL FACTORY METAL FINISHES, WITH 85% CASE COLOR, 98% BARREL BLUE, AND 90% CHARCOAL BLUE ON THE TRIGGER GUARD. The factory original wood has no signs of finish being added, but it likely has had some sort of finish applied as it is 102 years old and is in excellent condition. THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST BE 16 GAUGE GUNS IN EXISTENCE, MAKING IT A VERY VALUABLE, INVESTMENT QUALITY FOX. The 28” number 4 weight Chromox Fluid Steel barrels have excellent bores, 2 ½” chambers, factory choked M/F, tight ribs, clear sharp lettering and barrel wedge engraving, and fit tight on the hinge pin and breech face like a new gun. The action has the late style, deeply cut B Grade engraving with full coverage scroll and a couple of quail on the bottom of the action. The mechanics are excellent with strong, well-timed ejectors, crisp triggers, top lever right of center, perfect screws, and 85% strong factory case colors. The stock is English walnut, as stated on the order card, and has modern dimensions of 14 1/8” LOP, 2 7/16” drop at heel, and 1 7/16” drop at the nose of the comb. Years ago, we bent the stock up for the owner of this fine Fox, as it was 2 7/8” drop at heel.
