Is there a difference between Fox and A.H. Fox shotguns.

I know that Savage owns the Fox name:

SAVAGE ARMS is proud to celebrate 110 years of manufacturing and in keeping with its' time-honored tradition of developing the best products in the industry, will continue to pioneer new technologies, markets and consumer products that are peerless. Savage will always represent the most accurate rifle money can buy, while STEVENS will denote the best value to the consumer. FOX, a brand we will develop in the future, will be our flagship quality, with no compromise at any level.

SAVAGE SPORTS CORPORATION - the shooters choice.

Ronald Coburn - CEO
But Conn. Shotgun Co. is making them under the A.H. Fox name:

We at Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company of New Britain, Connecticut are proud to announce our production of the higher grades of the original A.H. Fox 16, 20, 28 and .410 Gauge Double Barrel Shotgun. The A.H. Fox Gun is the only completely hand finished high grade double currently manufactured in the United States. Once again these classic double guns are available to the American sportsman. They retain the same superior handling qualities and reliability as their predecessor guns built prior to World War II. The balance, weight, and simplicity of design of the newly manufactured A.H. Fox Guns is unsurpassed.

A glimpse into the history of the A.H. Fox Shotgun reveals that they were manufactured in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from 1905 until the early 1930''s. Guns manufactured in New Britain will have the same hand finish as the early guns produced in Philadelphia. Our manufacturing processes are unequaled in the gun making industry. We have set the highest standards for precision machining and utilize the finest machines available. We have recruited the best tool makers to operate this equipment.

The finishing on A.H. Shotguns is still performed by hand. Polishing, rust bluing, engraving, stock checkering, and fitting are all done manually by master craftsman skilled in the fine art of gunmaking
So what is the deal with Fox shotguns. Still made? or an old classic, or both??

Thanks for any feedback.
