Default Pair of Foxes

I was cleaning today on orders from she who makes the rules and while making room in a safe I found these two hiding in the back. I have had a good pile of fox guns over the years and always sold them to buy more Parkers These two managed to stay and I think they are a good representation of what the competition to Parker was making in the 1920's. Both are 32" 12ga guns.

Cheers

PML

Patrick, both look pretty good, especially that Super-Fox. Is it a 3-incher?

Some fantastic examples of what fox guns looked like when new.

I think the popular vernacular is "benchmark guns".
