Re: Fox Sterlngworth 16 GA., value
Savage bought the rights to produce Fox guns in the early 1930's. An earlier Fox will have Philadelphia,Pa on the barrels, a Savage made Fox will have Utica,NY on the barrels. The philly guns were more carefully made, with better quality materials, and are worth more than Savage produced guns. With little exception, they are basically identical, and function exactly the same. Ansley Fox was an extremely proud perfectionist, and he had a hard time compromising quality for profit, thus the reason he went out of business several times. They are the best American double shotguns ever produced. Yours, if in good condition, is selling between $1000 and $2000 right now.
