Hi All,

Just a little curious if you could evaluate a recent purchase of mine.  It was somewhat of an impulse buy, but I couldn't let it pass.  It's a Fox Sterlingworth 16 gauge, made in Philadelphia.  SN 363876, all numbers matching.  Gun appears in pretty good shape.  If I can get a picture posted, I would like to hear your comments and what a reasonable price would be.

OK, I don't know how to post pictures so any help there would be greatly appreciated too!!

Thanks.

barrel length, weight ... with out pictures 1k to 1500 would be a good starting range for the value

Kyle, you SOB!  :) That's one with a little ding in the barrel from Cummins-town area, isn't it? I traded some PMs with him on INGO and then had some 'puter issues that kept me from sealing the deal!

you got a heck of a deal, enjoy it!

Looks good. Wood isn't chipped or missing,  opening lever right of center, and even a little case coloring left. If Lurch is mad must have been a good buy.

According to a reference list it was made in 1932. If you are happy with the price, you'll be happy with the gun. I love my 1919 gun. Sterlingworh 16's are about as sweet as it gets. Looks to be in nice shape.

I paid 900 for a 20ga sterly that looks similar to what you have... not un happy about it.. had it restocked and love it... I paid 2100 for a 30" 20ga sterly that is probably not in as good a condition... Just bought a 16ga A grade extractor gun for 1600.. going to put the 30" barrels on that frame, do a restock  and have a 2 barrel set


if you paid less than 700 for a sub gauge, that doesn't need anything other than a restock..... you done real good.....
