12g Fox SxS for trade -
« on: April 13, 2017, 08:27:28 AM »
I have this old Fox Sterlingworth that I just dont use enough and Id like to trade her off for something interesting.

Its a good solid gun, circa 1914, 12 gauge, choked I believe in full/full, double triggers, tight lock up.  Ive shot a few quail, pheasants and ducks with it and few rounds of trap.  It appears to have been modified for trap shooting in that it has been fitted with a center bead and recoil pad.  Makes a very nice trap gun.

Full disclosure (or at least what I know):
The stock has been refinished and the decorative brass cross bolt appears to be part of a crack repair, probably done at the same time as the recoil pad installation.  The work is solid, professional quality.

Chamber is 2 from my research it was designed for heavy duck loads of the time which were 1 5/8oz lead.  Ive shot 1 3/8oz bismuth with it with no issues, but mostly 1oz field loads.

barrels are 30"
has extractors (not ejectors)
Weight = 7lbs 10oz
LOP = 14.125 (front trigger)

I have several boxes of bismuth shells that I can include for the right deal.

Trade interests include:
   Lever rifles of caliber higher than .32
   .35 caliber rifles of any action e.g. .357mag, .35 Remington, .356 win, .358 win, .35 Whelen,    
   Large caliber handguns Ruger Blackhawk, Thompson Contender, etc. 
   .223 bolt gun

What is the barrel length?

Will continue this with PM's after your answer.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska

Changed my mind on the cash price.  It's not for sale - trade only.  Something interesting.  There's nothing interesting about cash.
