It's a $10K gun if somebody paid that for it. But, I'm with you .......... I wouldn't have. There's always the possibility that someone knew of some extenuating provenance that made it worth more to them.

Doug was likely spot on earlier when he said:

I can think of so many guns I would rather have for $10K. And I really like Foxes.

I can see that. In the early 1970's- a USMC pal from Manhattan KS invited me out for the later pheasant season-also quails. In 3 days we really hammered the birds, plus we also flushed out 3 coyotes from the sorghum plots- 2 males, one female- at short range a load of 1&1/4 oz. No. 6 in their heads- end of story. Back then, the State paid a cash bounty for dead 'yotes, we gave the money- $100- to our farmer host- He in turn, invited us to a neighborhood potluck supper, followed by a private coon hound auction- Bill and I went, and I kid you not- 3 farmers with bankrolls of "C-notes" wadded into the pouch pockets of their Big Smith and Carharrt overhalls were bidding on a male redtick hound- ran it up to $3500 cash money-and the farmer who won the bidding pulled a wad of big bills out of that pocket-which was closed with a huge safety pin, and counted out 35 Benjamins, just as easily as he combed his hair-- and stuffed the rest back, shook hands with the former owner, and petted his new coon hound.

Wow-- RWTF

I followed the auction off and on. My overall feeling was that guns went for BIG dollars!

I agree with Brian, high condition etc. is still in demand. With rare exception I haven't seen a real bargain at this auction in years. Good place to sell!

I did note that an Ithaca 4E 16ga. in high condition went for, I believe, in excess of 6K. Is that a good price?

Fox A grade 20 gauge with I assume having cut barrels went for I believe $2,500. Barrels were 25". Assume they were cut. That seems up there to me.
