UPDATED Fox 20 Ga Sterlingworth upgrade project.

Postby Brian » Mon May 07, 2018 3:28 pm

Fox 20 Ga Sterlingworth upgrade project.
It started life as a 20 Ga. Sterlingworth with 28” barrels. Dan Rossiter did all of the metal work, fences, reshaping, etc. the and stock work. I debated straight grip or semi pistol. I went with semi pistol grip.
The wood came from Cecil Fredi.
Horn butt-plate.
stocking is done, waiting for the checkering and final work to be done by Dan.
Barrels are MOD & Full, I am going ng to open right barrel to IC.

I will post more pics one I get the gun.
Here are a few pics of the engraving on my Fox Upgrade. Geoffroy Gournet did the engraving.

All metal except trigger guard will be French grayed.
I think that will show off the engraving more. darkend in the engraving to make it pop

Those gold wedding bands on the breeches are a very nice touch. I think it just adds much class to the barrels/action. Beautiful.

I met Geoffroy recently and was very impressed with him, in person. He engraved a damascus blade boot knife for me, and I am thrilled with the work.

Thanks for posting that, Brian. SRH

That is fantastic, Brian. I particularly like the Ruffed Grouse. Is that a portrait of your dog?

Restock has been started on the AE 16 gauge. Asked Dan to send me a picture of the blank post turning so I could get a look at it. After Dallas he will hopefully start the XE 20 gauge upgrade.
