I rarely see any for less than a grand unless they are trash. With 28” barrels, in decent condition, they start at 1,400-1.600 around here. 26” bring a couple hundred less. Dealers seem to be happy to ask for 2,000 and let them sit on the gun rack for six months to a year. Private sale might be less, much less but unless you are there when it happens you never hear about it in time to find a bargain.

$1400-1600 for an extractor gun, hundreds more for an ejector gun, good to better condition. More for high condition.

Thanks Stan. Last thing I expected to run across in nowhere North Carolina. Outside of big gun-shows, I've never encountered such a petite little AH gun anywhere before. This ones a plain Jane (with a poorly fitted "classic" Whiteline pad to boot). Extractors and 28 tubes, probably 13 1/2 LOP w/the shallow PG. No obvious issues, but I didn't dig too-deeply (didn't even think to figure out the tubes, but with the petite frame size and overall weight I'd bet #3 or 4). It's been a long time since I've seen an American gun that gave me cause to pause......they're asking $1,300. They used to be a lot more.

Were you in Wagram? There's a shop there with a great selection in classic "nowhere" NC.

No, we're staying in Littleton, which is way up north, almost in Virginia. I looked up Wagram (I'd never heard of it before). Is that where Mid-South is located?

Probably less valued in today's market than the Sterly, King, IMO. Still nice handling bird guns, though. So many people have "discovered" the charm of the 16 and 20 ga. Foxes, myself included, that the market now reflects that. Lloyd's comment is a perfect example of "discovering that charm".

I sold a perfectly good Ithaca SKB 200E 20 ga. to a good friend last fall. When I delivered it to him, expecting to return with his check in my pocket, I instead drove back with a 20 Sterly Ejector in the back seat, and left a check with him!

I had and sold two 16 gauge Sterlys. Great guns...I just got offers I couldn’t refuse. I will definitely buy another at some point. Haven’t picked up an American gun I like better than a small bore Fox.

all gauge foxes are wonderful guns...

someone like csmc should offer field grade fox guns in small gauges, like 28 and 410...

what would you pay for one?

$4000?
