There is something about a PH with twist barrels that seems right. The barrel pattern with that classy understated engraving is just perfect.

I really like the Fox 2nd generation engraving but A grades are all my paygrade can support...



but overall, Ithaca engraving is pretty hard to beat (grade 5 here),,,

A big soft spot for Parker Cs w/Bernard barrels! And a B Fox is a fine gun! Recently developed a liking of the Ithaca NIDs, the 28ga are sweet.

My current two favorites are Fox XE's deeply engraved with heads down Fox and Parker BH's. I favor guns made before the great conflict WWI.

I do like gold when used in moderation. Here's an example from a grade 6 Parker that looks very appropriate to me.
