Lightweight "Super-Fox"

Postby Silvers » Tue Apr 30, 2019 8:23 am

Taken on our spring turkey opener last Saturday up in the mountains. Two rainy days with strong winds and the temp dropped to 36-degrees that morning. Birds shut down and weren't talking. Well anyway, here's my A Grade 32 incher made in 1923 almost a year after the Super was introduced. 1-weight barrels, chambers measure 2-7/8" and the gent who shot with Fox factory guys there near Philadelphia ordered her at 8 pounds and with a Silver's pad. 3-inch/1-3/8 ounce handloaded shells for turkeys. :) 4-shot is the largest we can use but if I had my choice it would be deuces.

Frank, after reading your prose, I expected to see a picture of a "mountain gobbler"! I am sure that picture will be forthcoming.
