Here’s a look at the best waterfowl shotguns of all time, guns that do what we ask and more. Some have been around for decades, a few for more than a century. To be included in our 10 best waterfowl shotguns ever made list, these stalwarts have proven their worth with each passing season, despite a layer of rust and a battered stock. A few are remnants of a bygone era. Others may be the new gun in the marsh, but legions of dedicated waterfowlers have put them through the ringer and given them a wet, cold thumbs up as the best.
- <h2>A.H. Fox Double</h2>There were a plethora of double guns during their heyday in the early 1900s, and many remain collector’s items that no longer see any time in a duck blind. The original <a href="http://www.foxcollectors.com/ah_fox/content/" target="_blank">A.H. Fox doubles</a> are among those coveted by collectors. The most notable Fox was owned by legendary waterfowl hunter and writer Nash Buckingham. His HE Grade Super Fox double, nicknamed “Bo Whoop,” accounted for hundreds of birds and numerous stories. It sold at auction for more than $200,000 in 2010. <p> The Fox brand turned more into a working man’s gun when the company was acquired by Savage in 1929. The side-by-side was in production in various forms until 1988. Many of the guns are still in use today, although doubles are relatively uncommon in the duck marsh. Nash Buckingham would probably be disappointed with that that reality if he were still alive today.
