I'm looking at a Fox A grade with 30 inch #1 weight barrels. Serial number puts it at 1924 manufacture date. The seller says the gun weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces. That's a lot of gun. The #1 weight barrels were the heaviest I believe. I normally upland hunt with my SXS's but this appears to be more of a water fowl/target gun. Does anyone here have any experience with these heavier Fox guns? How do they handle? Thanks.

I recently had the pleasure of handling a Fox A grade 12 gauge with 28" #4 weight barrels weighing less than 7 pounds. I was surprised at how well it handled.

I supposed it would be a great dove gun. A little heavy for quail but I may just buy it
anyway. What the hell. You only live once.

Actually, #1 weight was the heaviest on the normal frame Fox guns. However. the HE and Sterlingworth Wildfowl 12 gauge guns both came with 0 weight barrels. These were both made with wider frames to accommodate the heaviest barrels offered. I'm not super technical, but I'm sure the width of the frame is readily available, probably in McIntosh's book.

My HE has 32 inch 0 weight barrels and weighs 8lbs.,11.9 ounces.
