Re: Sterlingworth/Fox 20 gauge double barrel - worth?
My book says add 50% to value for 20 gauge, so if the gun were untouched I would estimate value at about $1800. How much you deduct for the work done to the receiver is subjective, but Jolly's estimate of $1200 feels about right.
The screw holding the trigger guard to the stock appears to be incorrect; have it replaced. Shell lifters are called extractors.
Keep it in the family Richard, and insure it for $2,000.
