AH FOX Sterlingworth

Hi all,

I was given an AH Fox sterlingworth model #89998 in good to great condition. I am wondering if I was to sell it what would it be worth? I can't seem to find anything on line with values attached to it. Only issue with the gun is a small crack in the stock. Its not structural and I would shoot it with the crack, but it will definitely take away from the price. I can also add picture if anyone would like to see.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

There are several at auction on Gunbroker.com selling from $500 - $2500. I would compare your model, gauge, and grade to a similar one at auction as a starting point.

Photos

I think that should get you to the photos of the gun. If I need something different or want to see something better let me know and I will take it.

Thanks all for the help.

Re: AH FOX Sterlingworth

What gauge? (Price goes up when they are smaller than 12 gauge)

Where is the lever located when the action is closed? (left of center, center, right of center)


That recoil pad hurts the value.

Re: AH FOX Sterlingworth

That crack looks bad to me. Its been repaired, but that hurts the value. The replacement pad is moot since the stock is broken.

A stock could cost a few hundred getting it fit and checkered. Thats not fancy walnut either.

It still has some case colors which is a good thing.
The lever is still to the right, which is good.

If it wasn't cut or cracked and the barrels ring, it would probably sell at $800 to $1000.

My guess is that you might be able to get $400 to maybe $600 on an auction site. If you had sold it about 2 years ago, you likely would have gotten closer to $600 out of it.

Just my guess though.

I would say keep the thing. My dad has one and those are becoming more and more rare to see!

Re: AH FOX Sterlingworth

That crack is bad and poorly repaired and the recoil pad isn't original. After market stocks are available for 12 gauges. Checkered and finished with a proper buttplate probably probably $6-$800.

That rest of the gun appears very good from the little I can see from the photos. Assuming no surprises (cut barrels, reblued etc) not shown in the photos $600 is about tops.
