Q: Does Galazan claim his products are 100% 'Made in USA'?

If so, is he using a literal interpretation of 'made'?

My Toyota truck wears a door sticker that says 'Assembled by Toyota Motors - Texas'. On the same sticker it says 'Made in USA'.

I know for a fact that the engine was built in Indonesia (by Toyota at a very modern facility) and the transmission was made in Japan (by Aisin, Toyota makes no transmissions to my knowledge).

The tires I can trace to Tonawanda, NY. The rest of the parts could have been made virtually anyplace in the world.

There is no way for the the consumer to tell.

+2 we should support our manufactures trying to put sxs back into the American made market.
My last outing at the pheasant farm was nothing but auto loaders and pumps. I ran backup and dog handler and carried to field a sxs. Sadly not an American icon sxs but a very nice AYA.
In my youth the if we could turn back time 30 years the field of 5 hunters would all have been sxs!

That's interesting. In GA, 30 yrs. ago, they would have still been all pumps and semi-s. Even 50 yrs. ago, here, I would have had the only S x S on a dove field, out of maybe 30 guns. Truth is, I don't know how far I'd have to go back to find that the S x S was the predominant action type. 100 yrs. ............ maybe?

PHEW ! !

I never thought my OP would leave us knee deep in BS.

Some folks here would drown if it starts raining, because their noses are so far up in the air.

FWIW, I've owned an original 20ga A.H.Fox A-Grade in 99% original condition w/26" IC/Mod barrels.

No, nothing is an Ansley H. Fox double except another A.H.Fox double.

The older Savage Fox was not an Ansley H. Fox double, either - but as limited as the options were, Savage sold an awful lot of them over the years.

I've owned a few of those too, in every gauge offering.

This newer Fox is what it is - a new American-made non-economy-grade double, with apparent decent workmanship, fit, and finish.

My take is: Love it or leave it - this is America, you pay your money (or not) & take your choice.

Stan, on a recent dove hunt, Mike T. shot his Citori 28; Billy, his granddad's and dad's Midas Browning O/U 20; Dexter, his Galazan Fox 16; Rick, a graded Parker 12 restored by DelGrego; Mike M's son, a Caesar Guerini 28; Mike S., another CG, (but often shoots an M21 16, DT's, splinter forend), Inman, a Beretta SP1 in 20, and I, a Higham 16 sxs. Another man left the field early after reeling off a limit with only a couple of missed birds. He was shooting a 20 O/U which I never saw. Bill B. missed the shoot and he's a Citori 20 shooter. The rest of the crew shot an assortment of pumps and autos, and they shot them very well. Gil

Stan, the above field's owner, Burke, shoots a custom fit Beretta Jubilee 20 at quail, but shoots a gas auto at dove. When dove shooting last year over where Floyd lives, Howard shot one of his Purdeys and Mills one of his Parkers. Floyd and I may hunt dove occasionally with the higher brow crowd, but we are pulling up the rear with our lesser delights times 2. Gil

When I was a kid growing up here, and shooting doves all the time, our neighboring land owner was a rich businessman form Augusta, and good family friend. He would have big dove shoots, replete with lunch, and bird boys for every shooter (except me). He would put me in the middle of the sunflower field with instructions to "keep 'em flying, boy". If you didn't shoot an A5 you just "hadn't arrived". I shot an old plain barreled Rem. 11 in 20 ga. with a IC choke, and I would be high man on the field most of the time. Cannot recall ever seeing a doublegun. Strange.
