1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    SOLD--Ok Fox shotgun lovers--here is a pretty nice A grade 12 bore that won't break the bank and represents a very good value in todays market. This A Grade's serial # 20830--a Philadelphia gun with 30 inch Krupp barrels that have excellent bores. I believe this is a 1914 gun. The action is tight as a drum and the toplever is right of center. Some case colors still exist--see the pix. Mechanics are perfect. Very nice screws. The wood is free of cracks and in nice shape. The LOP is 14 1/4 inches over a 1 inch ebony type extension. Looks OK but I'd replace it with a Vintage pad. Just about all the original barrel blue exists. It's choked IM and F. A nice gun to shoot with 2 3/4" chambers or collect and sure to appreciate. A fine example of an Ansley H. Fox shotgun. EDIT--As you will see in subsequent posts, this gun weighs a delightful 6lbs 15 oz! And that is with 30 inch tubes. It is believed that this gun has #4 weight barrels, which is unusual. $1350 delivered in the lower 48.

    I am interested but would like to know the barrel weight. If you are not familiar with Fox's there should be a number ( 1,2,3,or 4) stamped on each barrel just forward of the barrel flats. It may be faint but should be there. Also, do you offer an inspection period?

    I am familiar with the barrel weight markings on Fox shotguns. The barrels have the fluid steel Krupp Essen markings, but I can make out any numbers. Many guns had these polished off in the final finishing operations. I would guess that these barrels are mid-weights, probably a 2. Inspection privileges of course!

    I weighed the gun on my digital scale and was surprised to find the gun only weighs 6lbs 15 oz. Nice and light for a Fox with 30 inch tubes. So--therefore the barrels are probably 3 or 4 weight!
