CSMC Fox 28 ga. CE

Postby BillJanssen » Mon Apr 14, 2008 12:31 pm

I actually took delivery of this gun last fall, but am just now getting around to posting. It's a standard 28 ga. CE with long and high stock dimensions...I picked out the wood myself from their stash. I couldn't decide between 28" and 30" bbls so I went with 29" choked IC and IM.

It's very cool gun, the tiny frame is so cute. For balance reasons I sent it back to have little weight carved out of the buttstock, the folks at CSM were happy to do this and turned it around promptly.

Bill: Very pretty gun! Nice stick of wood. I have a had a CSMC XE since 1997. Very nice gun that has been on many trips from Canada to Argentina. Mine has lost most of it's case color on the bottom of the action and the stock has quite a few dings and dents, it has some character but I bought it to shoot. Mine has been pretty much bullet proof, a trigger need adjustment twice, the pin that holds the sear moved out slightly and an ejector broke. CSMC took care of all the problems almost overnight. Enjoy.

Very,Very, Nice!

One of my biggest regrets in gun buying was to pass up a great deal on a CSMC Fox XE-16ga.

I'm envious and I wish you many wonderful years together, I can only dream of marching into Galazans and ordering exactly what I want in a new Fox.

Your a lucky Man!

How Long for delivery?

How long did it take from the time you ordered your gun until it showed up at your door?

Very nice! I took delivery of my Fox about one year ago. I could not be happier with it. I also sent it back to have some weight taken out of the butt. It did me well in it's first of many bird seasons. Mine took about one year to deliver after order. Enjoy in good health.

They indicated "about a year", it actually arrived in 14 months...which was fine.

Taking the weight from the buttstock improved the handling dynamic a bunch...I'm really glad I had this done.

Thanks, guys, for the nice thoughts.
