I own a Super Fox that I duck hunt with. I also know about the Sterlingworth Wildfowl.

What other "famous" side by side duck guns were there? I would love to research some other models/makers.

Thank you all.

First one that comes to mind is Nash Buckingham's Bo Whoop. If there was ever a storied firearm, that would be at or near the top! Great reading, too. Gil

On introduction in 1923, Hunter Arms referred to their gun as the "Long Range Wild Fowl", but shortly thereafter the gun was advertised and cataloged only as the "Long Range". Hunter Arms records show that one was made in 1921 and an Eagle Grade Long Range in 1922. Only 14 were made in 1923. Total production of Long Range shotguns (1921-41) was 2,606. The "Wild Fowl" name was used 1940-1942 and 98 were made.
Additional information may be found in the Spring 2013 Double Gun Journal Volume 24, Issue 1, p. 137.

Not all LRWF had 3" chambers and if so, had the football "CHAMBERS 3 INCHES" mark on the barrel flats. The top gun has the "reinforcing wedge"

#3 frame 32" Parkers, 3" chamber 1 1/2 ounce proofed Purdeys, 32" 3" chamber boxlock Dicksons, heavy frame long barrel Prussian Dalys, and a few others that I can't think of right now. How about 3" Ithaca NID 12s?
