A. H. Fox Double Barrel Shotguns

"The Finest Gun in the World"

A Fox Gets the Game

Theodore Roosevelt left office as President of the United States on March 4, 1909. Later that month he embarked on his much publicized excursion to Africa. Prior to his departure, the A.H. Fox Gun Company presented President Roosevelt with an FE grade, 12 gauge double barrel shotgun. The following "letter of thanks" was received from the former president.

My dear Mr. Fox:
The double-barreled shotgun has come, and I really think it is the most beautiful gun I have ever seen. I am exceedingly proud of it. I am almost ashamed to take it to Africa and expose it to the rough usage it will receive. But now that I have it, I could not possibly make up my mind to leave it behind. I am extremely proud that I am to have such a beautiful bit of American workmanship with me.

Sincerely Yours,
Theodore Roosevelt

Later that same year President Roosevelt wrote from Africa (published in Scribner's Magazine) on his new gun:

"I had a Fox No. 12 shotgun: no better gun was ever made."

We at Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company of New Britain, Connecticut are proud to announce our production of the higher grades of the original A.H. Fox 16, 20, 28 and .410 Gauge Double Barrel Shotgun. The A.H. Fox Gun is the only completely hand finished high grade double currently manufactured in the United States. Once again these classic double guns are available to the American sportsman. They retain the same superior handling qualities and reliability as their predecessor guns built prior to World War II. The balance, weight, and simplicity of design of the newly manufactured A.H. Fox Guns is unsurpassed.

A glimpse into the history of the A.H. Fox Shotgun reveals that they were manufactured in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from 1905 until the early 1930''s. Guns manufactured in New Britain will have the same hand finish as the early guns produced in Philadelphia. Our manufacturing processes are unequaled in the gun making industry. We have set the highest standards for precision machining and utilize the finest machines available. We have recruited the best tool makers to operate this equipment.

The finishing on A.H. Shotguns is still performed by hand. Polishing, rust bluing, engraving, stock checkering, and fitting are all done manually by master craftsman skilled in the fine art of gunmaking.

The requirement for substantial amounts of precise machining and hand finishing dictate that the newly manufactured A.H. Fox Shotguns will never be available in great quantities. Annual shipments are estimated to be less than one hundred guns. These guns have all the prerequisites necessary to attain their place as American classics and to provide their owners immense satisfaction as excellent investments.

The A.H. Fox Gun

The tradition continues. Today's A.H. Fox Guns are the same excellent value as those purchased by your grandfather. It is a fitting tribute that the first words of acclaim for the newly manufactured A.H. Fox double guns should come from the past. The following appeared in a turn of the century A.H. Fox gun catalog:

"The genuine A.H. Fox Gun is The Finest Gun in the World." No gun ever made equally its simplicity and strength, quality or workmanship. No amount of labor or expense is spared to make it perfect. The best mechanical principles known in gun making have been combined with the finest workmanship and materials obtainable, absolutely regardless of cost. The A.H. Fox Gun has fewer parts in its mechanism than any other double hammerless gun, and these parts are so much larger and stronger, that it is practically impossible to break them, or for the gun to get out of order."

At the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition A. H. Fox Guns won the Gold Medal for the best double shotguns and single trigger

Grades

A.H. Fox Double Barrel Shotguns are available in five grades. Starting with the XE grade, receivers are hand sculpted so that the standing breech is shaped to follow the arc of the barrels curving in toward the rib. The amount of time required to polish, hand fit, and finish increases substantially with each higher grade of gun.

CE Grade

The CE Grade A.H. Fox is in every respect a high grade gun and represents outstanding value. It is engraved with fine scroll and game scenes. The gun stocks are made with our quality "one star" Turkish Circassian walnut. Fine hand checkering is cut on the grip, panels, and forend.

XE Grade

The XE Grade A.H. Fox meets the demand for a hand-finished gun having all the refinements of the gun-maker's art. It has chiseled scroll work and engraved game scenes. These guns are stocked with our "two star" quality Turkish Circassian walnut. Distinctive fine checkering adorns the grip, panels, and forend.

DE Grade

The DE Grade is a striking example of the mechanical simplicity, strength, fine workmanship and excellent shooting qualities of the A.H. Fox Gun. It is a classic beauty in every detail. Engraving is intricate and extensive. It is stocked with our "three star" highly figured Turkish Circassian walnut. The checkering is the finest diamond pattern on the grip, panels, and forend.

FE Grade

The FE Grade is built for the sportsman who is satisfied by only the best that there is. The FE Grade is unsurpassed in appearance and shooting qualities by any gun. It is in every sense of the word a "work of art." The engraving is a revelation in the ornamentation of guns, consisting of gold inlays surrounded by one of several types of beautiful scroll. If desired, the individual signature of the purchaser is inlaid in gold on the trigger guard or the monogram engraved upon a gold shield in the stock. The stocks are selected from our "four star" Turkish Circassian walnut, which is richly figured. The checkering is exquisite, being the finest diamond pattern, on the grip, panels, and forend.

Exhibition Grade

The Exhibition Grade is made for the sportsman/collector for whom price is no object. This gun is for the discriminating individual who wishes to invest in one of the truly greatest guns ever produced. The A.H. Fox Exhibition Grade Gun is a museum quality piece. The ornamentation design, consisting of gold inlays and engraving, is specified and approved by the customer before the gun is built. Gus stock wood is chosen by the customer from our supply of Exhibition Quality Turkish Circassian walnut. This rare wood is the most sought after and expensive available anywhere in the world. Included with the gun is the best quality fully accessorized leather trunk case.
