    Maybe one of the fine people on Glock talk can help me. Have a friend here at work that has a :
    Fox - Sterlingworth Shotgun
    from AH Fox Gun COmpany
    Phila., Pennsylvania
    28" barrel(s)
    Sterlingworth Fluid Compressed Steel (?)
    Good to fair condition
    12 gage (I'll have to confirm this)
    Stock is cracked but no broken

    What would be considered the worth for this gun? I'm not big on shotguns so I can't help much.
    ;Q

    It's impossible to tell without seeing it, but it COULD be worth up to several thousand dollars, depending on the grade (the grade is usually marked with a letter, marked on the receiver and flats of the barrel). Even if it's not, and the metal is in good shape, it would be worth a couple of hundred dollars as a "restorable" gun. Ansley H. Fox was a relatively famous trap-shooter from the early 1900s up until the 1930s, and his company specialized in trap and field-grade side by sides. In 1929, the AH Fox company was bought out by Savage, who continued making "Fox" guns under the "Sterlingworth" name, and in 1993, the AH Fox name was revived by the Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company for a line of 20 gauge SxSs. HTH.

    Hey Canadian Glock Fan...thanks for the input! I did not see the gun myself but I think I"ll take a little ride and see what it looks like. The guy that owns it is a real mechanic/millright/technician/hydraulic specialist/ex-Navy Sea Bee so I"m apt to trust his summation but first hand is the best witness.
