Do you have any pictures of the Fox, jmc, and did they do charcoal pack or cyanide ?

Thanks, SRH

Stan,

Here's the Fox re-cased by Sharps. I did not send it directly rather a shop that was doing other work on her sent it there. Bone and charcoal. Definitely not Foxish colors but 'pretty'.

Sorry, for me those colours are way too "extravagant". I have a Dodd Hughes single shot that was case hardened by Doug Turnbull BUT I specified "subdued" colours, it came out like this,







INMO the best in the world is Ray St Ledger in Birmingham, UK who does all the work for the usual suspects



best, Mike

Very nice, jmc. You're right, they're not Foxish colors, but they don't look too out of place on it. Very nice.

Dig told me several years ago that Ray St. Ledger was the best to do English guns, to replicate original colors, but I am specifically looking for someone to do a Fox with cyanide. I am chasing down a lead on a place in Pennsylvania now that does cyanide casing for industry. They supposedly did the cyanide casing for Fox many, many years ago. We'll see.

The idea, for me, is to replicate the original colors. If that can't be done, I'll probably leave it as is.

Thanks all, SRH

Stan, check out Paul Lippold of Ron's Gun Shop in Oshkosh, WI who offers cyanide case coloring with the swirling mottled effect used by A.H. Fox.

Mike Bailey, if I ordered "subdued colors" from Doug Turnbull, I would expect exactly the colors pictured on the Hughes gun. What's not to like about those colors?

Hello jmc,

No they are two independant companies, although I do believe Shiloh Sharps do some action and other castings for C.Sharps. They are both on the same street in Big Timber.

C. Sharps Arms, Inc. // P.O. Box 885, Big Timber MT 59011 // P (406) 932-4353 // F (406) 932-4443 // rifles@csharpsarms.com

Wild Skies,

Thank you very much. I had not heard of them, and that is exactly what I am looking for. I will check them out. It seems that Fred Heinzelman in PA is closed down. No answer on any of their phone numbers.

SRH
