My friend showed up for a morning of bird dog training with this sweet 16-gauge Fox Sterlingworth. This is a very clean, original gun, circa 1924, and is a real pleasure to shoot. Though I have admired them for many years, this was my first opportunity to shoot a Fox.
Crisp lettering on what appears to be rust blued barrels indicates this gun was made in Philidelphia PA, before the purchase of the company by Savage Arms and the move to Utica, NY.
A splinter forearm still with excellent checkering. This gun has been well taken care of and maintained for almost ten decades.
All screws are perfect.
To me, Fox guns have perfect proportions and exquisite style. This gun’s weight and balance were just right; partly, I am sure to it being in the marvelous 16 gauge.
Hard to believe this gun is 96 years old!
A well-trained dog!
Tex, on a hard point.
Armas Garbi 28-gauge. Another sweet-shooting bird gun.
