I thought so too. Cheap enough to ad a small pad . I'd have bought it but I have one already . And don't need any more guns . Besides I have a NID on the way right now . Embarassed

Looks like the release lever is not right of center..... but, there still could be a lot of shooting life yet.

Attractive price for a Sterlingworth, but I wonder what the "fair" metal and wood entails. Some degree of pitting? Metal proud above the wood? Seems like either you have to sink some money into it (maybe a lot) or try to be happy with it as is. Who knows, maybe it's a true bargain.

Looking from the top down on left hand side of receiver, there seems to be a pin protruding out. ( I could be wrong ) I am not an expert. It is very intriguing for the price and as Mr. Erickson mentions it could be a bargain or vice versa. Being a Fox and a 16 gauge to boot you would think even if it was a just a o.k. shooter it would still bring a a larger price tag. I have a Fox on layaway now, but I must admit my wallet is trembling at the thought of a $599.99 16 gauge Fox !!!!

That's just the sear pin. A tap with a plastic hammer would bring it back flush.

Any one know if it's a Philly or Utica gun. I suspect Utica. But still a good buy I think..

Based on the serial number, it's a Utica gun made about 1934.

A few years ago I picked up a Sterly 16 for $350. Great shape except for a small crack in the wood. I had a client that wanted one so I sold it to him, but now I wish I had kept it, especially since I tried it out at the range and couldn't miss with it. Never going to find one for $350 again.

Since it's Cabela's Gun Library that listed it, I have a hard time believing it's a "true bargain."

You can always call the seller and see what he says about it. Also, since it is not an auction, the price is negotiable.

Zrexxer, don't get too hung up on my wording. I was just trying to say that it might be a decent deal for the money. And of course it might not be.
