Couple more pics.All numbers match,has 1 weight barrels with small white center bead, a Bradley type front which I'm sure is a replacement.I really dought if this gun being an A Grade would have come with this nice of stock,but the forearm seemed to match pretty well so it didn't seem to matter.I know this gun has had some work done to it, I'm only about half it's age and I've had some work done to me too.Im tickled to have gotten it bought.I think I'm still a current member of LC Smith,but have never looked into Fox Collectors Assn.Jeff

A couple others I have.The bottom gun in the picture was also purchased from the same gentleman a couple years ago and was choked IC and Mod.The case colors on this gun are vibrant.The upper gun was an internet purchase a couple months ago and has some nice dark figured wood as well.These are both 30 inch guns and fit great also.

You really do want to join the A.H. Fox Collector's Association, Inc. and get a copy of the production card.

Well I'll just have to join them too I guess.I see on the upper tang a small slot was filled where the safety was.I shot it today and the trigger switch moves but right barrel fires first either position.And the left ejector isn't working either so needs a little work.

The slot for the safety slide in the tang must be something done early in the production of frames, as I've yet to see a no-safety Remington, Parker Bros. or Ansley H. Fox that doesn't have the slot filled.

It looks like it went back for the single trigger and conversion to no safety. Early triggers and ejectors can be tricky to get straightened out. Good luck with your Fox. Drop me a PM, I have some interesting information on your gun.

Nice find Jeff. You might want to post a front end pic of the frame knuckle to show if she has the early style Fox & Horne ejectors or the newer Russell Patent ejectors. Russell Patent parts are much more easily found if needed, though ime it's often just a matter of evaluating and tinkering to get the Russell ejector(s) to cock and trip on time.

Here's a couple more pics of ejectors and frame,if someone can determine what I have.The trigger works good,just doesn't switch from right to left barrel,which really doesn't matter as both chokes are the same.It fires the right barrel first.I have only fired it once so maybe both ejectors work some time.I want to get a Crack in the stock fixed before I shoot it very much. Looks like 1911 production by serial number. Thanks for any info.Jeff

Thanks Jeff for posting the pics. You have the Fox & Horne so-called 1st generation ejectors. Some of these earlier Foxes were changed out to the Russell Patent system, but not yours. Supposedly that was because of reliability issues but I’ve owned a few F&H Ejector Foxes and all but one were fully functional. Hopefully yours will prove to be too because if it needs parts they’re pretty much unobtainable and must be renewed/made in a well equipped machine shop.
