I don't have any interest in this gun other than knowing the seller and the outlet handling the sale. Not sure it's even made the web yet, but when it does it will be on the M W Reynolds site. Very nice American bird gun, lovely case colors, good weight, & good LOP over a pad and an extension spacer. It won't be cheap but it shouldn't be prohibitive either. Good Luck!

Just checked, it's not been listed yet. Not sure how unusual these straight-gripped Foxes are, but this is the only one I've ever seen in person.

If its this one, its nearly identical to the 1927 A grade that I have:

Id guess the recoil pad is not likely original. This gun will probably have 2-9/16 chambers.

I love mine, and love it more when I remember it has two triggers. Grandma bought it in the 30s to shoot crows in the garden.

That's it. 1925 gun w/No. 3 Chromox barrels, not No. 2 (misremembered their numbering system, knew it was the next lightest option). It's listed as having 2 3/4 chambers and at 6lbs1!

It's possible the chambers were opened up then. I did that with mine. If they are 2-9/16" though, you'll definitely feel it when you shoot a 2-3/4" though it. Ouch! Mine weighs in a 5 lbs 12 oz.

It's truly a fine gun, built on a 20 gauge frame. I always figured A grades in 16 gauge were worth around $4000 so $4995 seems a bit high to me, but if I wanted a second one, I'd spring for the extra thousand! Hope it finds a good home.

About as good as an American bird gun gets. You pay a premium to shoot "one of ours".

I could be wrong, that checkering pattern looks incorrect for a straight grip A grade Fox. I'd want to see the underside to see the long tang. No A grade straight grips came with a short tang.

I'll agree with that something doesn't look right .

The buttstock looks like it was restocked with higher comb. The checkering appears different than the forend too. Probably a good shooter!
