Fox HE Super Fox 12 Gauge SxS
32”, 1 OF 950 MADE, HIGH FACTORY CONDITION
General Specs: Fox, Year 1927, 12Gauge, 9lbs 2oz, Side-by-Side
Serial Number: 31791
Those interested in long range shooting likely know of the Fox HE Grade or "SUPER FOX", the most capable long-range gun made in America, or maybe in the world! There is a strong interest in these guns, made so by famous outdoor writer Nash Buckingham in the late 1920's and in all of the stories written since. There were only about 950 of these guns manufactured, and most have been altered in ways that destroy their function and value, so an unmolested Super Fox is a rare find. The Super Fox performance is entirely dependent on the combination of the over-bored barrels, precise chambers, and special, long tapered chokes, all finely tuned by the famous barrel guru Bert Becker. This Super Fox, sn31791 shipped in 1927, has 32” barrels with factory 3” chambers, showing the correct .738 bore diameter and 4 ½” chokes tapering to a 49 (R) and 48 (L) thousandths constriction. Like most waterfowling guns, this Super Fox was used, but also well maintained, as it retains over 92% bold factory case color, 92% factory blue, 97% factory trigger guard blue, near perfect screws, excellent bores, no dents or dings, barrels tight on the hinge pin and breech face like a new gun, ejectors are super strong and well timed, mechanics are excellent, no cracks or repairs to the factory length wood that still retains the original finish and superb checkering, and there are the customary handling marks on the barrels and wood. Most HE Super Fox guns have plain jane American walnut chosen for its strength. This gun has nicely figured English walnut with nice, strong straight grain through the wrist, making it a much more handsome Super Fox than you usually see. THIS IS AN AMAZING FIND AS THESE GUNS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS ALTERED, USED HARD, AND LACK THE SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION YOU SEE IN THIS GUN. The Super Fox is in such hot demand and the prices have risen so sharply as a result, this gun will go fast as it is one of the finest conditioned factory original Super Fox guns seen for sale in a very long time. Don’t hesitate or it will be gone! Thanks for looking at our fine guns.
