Item Description

From a railroad man’s estate in Memphis comes this well worn but serviceable Fox Sterlingworth 12 gauge double. Manufacturer was A.H. Fox Gun Company of Philadelphia. From its 57000 range number and internal marking, it was manufactured in 1910 or 1911. Markings read Sterlingworth Fluid Compressed Steel / Made by A.H. Fox Gun Co. Phila. PA. U.S.A. atop the barrels; Sterlingworth on both receiver laterals; Model 1911 and serial number on the inner forend plate; E8 Proof and matching number on the chamber plate; and Pat’d Dec 2 1902 / Aug 16, 1904 – Aug 4 1905 / Oct 17 1905 / Jan 16 1906 on the water table. Serial numbers all match on the lower tang, water table, barrel lug, and forend. Construction is entirely poured steel metal, no Damascus. Type is Box Lock Side by Side or double barreled shotgun. Chambering is 12 gauge, light and field load smokeless powder 2 5/8 and 2 3/4 inch shells interchangeably. Barrels are 26 inches, possibly original length since the Mississippi Delta is quail country. Right tube shows slight seam separation at the muzzle and 3 inches back. Bore has no more than 25% internal pitting. Chambers are clear. Muzzle diameter is .711 IC or Modified right side by .685 Full Choke left side. Lockup and mechanism are tight and positive. We test fired it with no problem, and it is a joy to shoot. Forend does not show any cracks, but the buttstock has two long cracks on its left side, and a short crack on the right, with extensive repairs executed from the 1930s. Drop and length of pull are all correct, 14 inches from the right trigger to the replacement FN Browning Butt Plate. Weight empty is 6 pounds 9 ounces, centered at the pivot pin. Overall length is 42 3/8 inches. Finish is gray and plum patina, with some original bluing remaining underneath the barrel. We rate this Sterlingworth as only fair, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is serviceable and historic from its years of hunting the sericea lespedeza fields of the Mississippi Delta. We’re offering it for only $ 359.00. Definitely C&R Eligible.
