PHILLY GUN, 1 OF 202 MADE, FACTORY XE WOOD, SST, 30” BARRELS, WOW!

General Specs: Fox, Year 1925, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 6oz, SxS
Serial Number: 302081

The A.H. Fox C Grade guns are considered by many to be the most attractive of the Fox guns.  There are higher grades but the C Grade engraving is elegant.  This is a rare gun, as they only produced 305 C Grade Fox guns in 16ga. and only 202 in Philly made guns.  This fine Philly Fox, sn302081 made in 1925, is a very special Fox indeed, as the factory order card is very detailed and the gun has many special-order factory features, including XE Grade buttstock figure and checkering, Fox/Kautzky single selective trigger, full pistol grip, factory ordered butt pad, 30” Chromox #3 weight barrels factory choked IC/M, and weighing in at 6lbs. 5oz.  Anyone who has handled the Fox 16ga. graded guns realize they are all built on the 20 gauge frame and are light and finely balanced double guns that are a delight to carry afield.  This is a stunningly beautiful Fox CE.  We have photos of the head of the stock with the factory serial number and machining showing it is original to the gun.  The engraving is superior to most other Fox CE guns you will see.  The wood-to-metal fit is perfect, as are the screws.  The barrels are tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face, with excellent bores.  The factory records show that the customer that ordered the gun was very specific in the way he wanted the stock built, including the pitch, shape of the pistol grip, patterns of the barrels, trigger pulls, pad style, and stating “make nice as possible”.  You will never see another Fox CE 16 like this one…one-of-a-kind with very desirable features and a near impossible to find Fox/Kautzky SST, one of the best-ever designed.  What a great Fox gun for all your upland needs and sporting clays when those vintage shoots come up.  The Fox CE 16ga. is highly sought after and the values continue to rise, so don’t let this one get away from you.  Thanks for looking!
