    Researcher, that is a lovely gun. Could you please post photos of the trigger guard and the top of the breech? I'd like to see the treatments there. When and where were these grades made?

    This is the only other picture of my second generation B-Grade that I have loaded in Photobucket --



    The second generation B-/BE-Grades were introduced in the A.H. Fox Gun Co. 1914 catalogue and remained in their catalogues through the November 30th, 1919, price list, but are gone from the December 1st, 1919, price list.

    I think I would ask Tony to replicate the engraving pattern from one of the Pan Pacific Foxes.
    Pull!

    Dr Duk, that is beautiful engraving on your gun, design and execution, and very clear. Case colors on some of the guns can subdue the detail of parts of the engraving, and in any event the guns themselves are small enough it can be hard for aging eyes to take in every bit.

    The X grade was sealed for me when I read it supposedly had origins as a Trap grade/gun. I began shooting targets in number at trap and my M21 bird gun is a Trap grade; believe that's as high as I'd go though.

    That's the nicest CSMC XE Grade I have seen, it doesn't look like standard XE engraving.
    Was it an XE Special like the DE Special?
    Very very nice!
    My 16 gauge CSMC Fox DE Special 16 gauge 26" 5# 9oz.
    I requested just scroll and no birds or animals.

    Lou from CSMC called and recommended NOT to have it case colored since the engraving turned out so well.
    I'm glad I listened to LOU.

    Standard XE, just turned out exceptionally well.
    Thank you for the kind comments.
    I'll take some more pictures and post them
