Item Description: Translate description
serial #432, 12 ga., 30" Krupp steel barrels choked full and full with bright excellent bores. This rare factory salesman demonstrator is illustrated in McIntosh's A.H. Fox: The Finest Gun in the World where it is listed as one of seven factory cut-away guns known to the author. He notes that all of the known cutaways have the barrels fully intact (except for one altered later) making them fully functional. This shotgun shows two cuts on left side of frame which exposes the strikers and main springs, a large cut in the bottom which shows the cocking mechanism and a cut in the left side of the wrist/cheek section of stock which shows the safety function. The barrels retain 97% old restored blue finish overall, quite possibly factory work. The action shows simple early style factory "A" pattern engraving and retains generous traces to perhaps 10 or 15% original color case-hardened finish in protected areas with the balance bearing a pleasing smooth gray brown patina. The checkered pistolgrip walnut buttstock and forend show some figure and rate excellent and have probably been lightly cleaned and with freshened finish. This is an extremely rare and cool piece which belongs in a prominent collection of Fox guns. (17034-8) {C&R}

Estimate: 5000 - 8000
