Fox C Grade Ejector

     Here we have a great example of an early American Favorite! This C-grade 12 gauge Ansley H. Fox retains a high level of condition, especially considering its age. Fox made C-grades for about 37 years, ending in 1942. This gun, serial number 23269, was completed in 1916 and has the desireable capped pistol grip stock and selective ejectors. Proud wood at the inletting, crisp engraving and lettering and traces of case colors are a testament to the originality and honesty of this piece. 30" barrels have shiny bores with 2-1/2" chambers measure 0.728" with chokes right 0.030" and left 0.033" and minimum wall thickness approx 0.030" The barrels could benefit from a reblacking job, as they have worn finish, especially where the gun gets held while in the field, right above the fore end. Our firm can perform this for an additional $495 and approx 3 month wait. Barrels lock up nicely to the action, due to the "rotary" locking bolt, and the top lever lands just to the right of center, which is good. This example is equipped with an automatic safety.
     Pull is 13-7/8" from front trigger over the black plastic buttplate. Drop at heel is approx 2-1/2" and 1-11/16" at the comb. The walnut has a beautiful grain figure, crisp checkering and only minor handling and pressure marks. The buttplate has a chip at the toe, which could probably be remedied with Acraglass, or just replaced. 
     This gun weighs a total of 7 pounds 3 ounces, with barrels alone weighing 3 pounds 15 ounces. Balance is approx 1/2" forward of the hinge pin and this gun comes to the shoulder easily and naturally...Proportions, fit and finish make this fine Fox sizzle in our hands!
     Overall, this solid, collectible and shootable Fox represents a great value!
