this is the 1926 vintage Fox Sterlingworth I posted about yesterday. 12 gauge with 30" Mod/Full barrels. Gun's in decent shape, maybe 50% based on Blue Book standards. She's solid and everything works on her. Barrels are in great condition. Too bad the previous owner had a hideous looking black rubber eraser recoil pad installed. Anyway, take a look at a real American classic SxS...

I don't think that is a relic. My understanding is a relic is a gun that is in very very poor condition and cannot be made to fire because of excessive rust/pitting. Basically you can tell that its a gun, but can't do much else with it.

It is beautiful though.

Great find! That's a fine old SxS, and I'm sure she has many more days in the field left in her.

just using the term relic as a figure of speech. She is one very solid gun with lots of life left in her... :)

Nancy Pelosi is a relic - that gun is still in great condition with lots of hunts left in her

Nice. It needs exercise, though.....

Even if it's not fully functional, it's a beautiful piece.
