I read the articles yesterday and both of them were great. Steve and Frank, you have amazing writing skills. Frank, I think that was the first time that I have seen chalk dust used to enhance the readability of the lettering on a barrel. Very clever.

Made it to the Washington/Idaho border today. Much faster than the last issue.

I have 16-gauge Fox-Sterlingworth Deluxe Ejector that, in addition to the regular production card --

has a Fox Special card surviving in the records at Savage.

I also have a Fox-Sterlingworth Ejector Brush 193 before the gun Frank wrote about, the highest 12-gauge serial number gun I've recorded with Sterlingworth Fluid Compressed Steel barrels. Roe provided me photocopies of the card for that gun.

Only card I've seen with the production steps printed on the back.

However, my gun has nothing as neat as the sling eyes and 3IN. of the gun Frank wrote about.

We were traveling but the DGJ was in our mail when we returned to Idaho on the 8th. Thanks to Steve and Frank for two fine articles. John
