Fox XE 16 Gauge Shotgun
FACTORY ORIGINAL, MINT CONDITION, 1 OF 90
General Specs: Fox, Year 1919, 16 Gauge, 5lbs 12oz, Side-by-Side
Serial Number: 300790
During the 20 years of chasing A.H. Fox guns of all grades and gauges for my personal collection and to assist my clients build their collections, the Fox XE 16ga. has been one of the most difficult to find. I have only seen 5 offered for sale in the last 10 years. This fine example could be the very best XE 16 on Mother Earth, as it has all original factory finishes retaining 99% case color, blue, and wood finish. Built in 1919, sn300790 is one of 90 factory-documented Fox XE guns built in 16ga., with only 79 of those the cherished Philly made guns. Some of these guns have disappeared so it is likely there are less than 70 or so left in the world. Of the 70, few have much condition remaining and most have been significantly altered since leaving the factory. I have examined this gun inside and out, and it is a near new, factory original gun. The signature A.H. Fox case colors are not duplicated in today’s world. The engraving on this gun is exceptionally sharp and clear and from the prime era of Fox engraving. When you examine the order card you will notice it shows 3 ½” drop at heel which is an error on the card as the gun has 2 ½” drop at heel and THE GUN MATCHES ALL OTHER DETAILS ON THE ORDER CARD including the long length of pull, gun weight, barrel weight and length. Errors were made when handwriting order cards. The gun came from the factory with the 2 ½” drop at heel. The factory marked serial number is on the head of the stock as shown in the photos. Weighing just 5lbs. 13oz. and balanced perfectly on the hinge pin, you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful A.H. Fox. This gun has it all…rarity, high grade, incredible factory original condition, desirable features and stock dimensions, perfect mechanics, mirror bores, gorgeous wood figure, perfect screws…an A.H. Fox gun for the advanced collector or avid shooter/collector. When you consider this is likely your only chance to own such a gun, it is a wise investment vehicle for your hard-earned funds at the price offered. Thanks for looking and don’t hesitate or she will be gone and hidden away for decades under somebody else’s ownership.
