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.

    Extractors or ejectors? Chokes? The Miller single trigger alone makes it special. Post some pictures. Is it for sale? Bill

    If you can provide a serial number I can tell about when it was made just x out the last two numbers. It is a Utica gun so it was made between 1930 and 1941.

    The Miller trigger was added later as they did not install Miller triggers at the factory.

    Millers were the best aftermarket triggers and there is a shop in Cato New York that is now installing them and they also repair them. You can find more information about this gun at www.foxcollectors.com.

    The only way to know for sure if it was a "Deluxe" is to get a factory letter on it you can find the information on the Fox site.

    I have collected Foxes for over 30 years and it is very rare to find an original Beavertail on a Sterlingworth.

    I suspect the beavertail was added when they installed the trigger.
    The letter will tell you how it left the factory.

    Please post some pictures!

    Don't know much, but I do know I want it.

    I've been looking for one like this, and the Utica build makes it.

    Please contact me if you want to sell

    algebra1, This is not an auction site. Did you contact tinlo? At least post a price before taking it to the top. Regards, Bill

    Steve,
    The wood on your gun was replaced both the stock and Forend. The checkering pattren on the Beavertail is not the way Fox did them, also the Factory Beavertails came with a latch on the Forend. The flute on the comb of the stock is longer than the way Fox did it. All that said It looks like a nice gun and I bet it is Hell on birds!
    Good Luck,
    Scott

    To clarify " Deluxe Sterlingworth" model, This is strictly a Utica term and the only difference between a standard model is a second rib bead and a recoil pad. Usually the price difference was these two items included. They are not marked as such and included nothing else. Ejectors were additional to any Sterlingworth. You have a great looking gun and if it is a factory "Brush" not marked by the way the chokes are less than 10 thousands in each barrel.
