The New Fox Sterlingworth

Good things really do come to those who wait.  A very long six months ago back in April, I wrote a post about purchasing a new gun.  It’s finally here…a refurbished 1936 Fox Sterlingworth DeLuxe 16 gauge SxS. Thanks to Jay Shachter at Vintage Firearms, Inc., the craftsmanship on this gun is impressive and the fit is perfect.

With the barrels choked modified and full, I ran it through the sporting clays course at the Kent County Conservation League in Ada, Michigan this past weekend. I shot one of the best rounds I’ve had in months. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

  • Beauty of a club to have in the bag and one heck of a refurb job…very nice.

  • Awesome refinish. Looks like hand rubbed wood. That takes a while! I’ve got an old LC Smith that I can’t wait to get started on, once the bird season is over. A good winter project.

    I bet your gun shoots great. Those old Sterlingworths come up like a dream.

  • I love Fox guns — have a ‘pair’ of Fox guns and have used my first Fox 16 for over 20 years now and seldom use anything else. They have everything you need in the ideal bird gun. Congratulations on the beautiful Fox.
