Item Description: Translate description
serial #30500, 12 ga., 32" Chromox steel barrels choked full and full with bright excellent bores. This is a very fine example of these big, heavy long range Fox guns. The Superfox guns were built on larger frames with heavy barrels with special Burt Becker designed barrels which feature longer chokes and forcing cones. Specially designed to pattern tightly at long ranges, Nash Buckingham's Superfox "Bo Whoop" would put 90% of its pattern inside a 30" circle at forty yards. A drop-in chamber length gauge measures these chambers at 2 7/8" and the flats are indeed marked "BARRELS NOT GUARANTEES-SEE TAG" which refers only to the patterning of the gun; the flats are not marked 3 IN. The Superfox was developed at the request of John Olin and tested with Super-X ammunition, the reason for this "Not Guaranteed" marking was to relieve liability of their claims of 80% patterns as they were only developed and tested using Super-X shotshells. The barrels retain 95% original blue overall showing just a little very light, honest wear. The action retains 90% original color case-hardened finish with only notable loss being on the forward belly of the action where it is silvery in color. The checkered pistolgrip walnut buttstock and splinter forend rate excellent having been very lightly cleaned and with reapplied finish. The checkering remains sharp and the shotgun boasts a 14 1/4" length of pull with drops of 1 1/2" and 2 1/2". McIntosh states that only about 300 Superfoxes were built over the twenty years that they were offered and because these were working waterfowl guns they saw hard use in hostile environments making them quite rare in this high level of condition. A wonderful HE Superfox. (17034-5) {C&R}

Estimate: 5000 - 7000
