No, you will not get a Stevens fox for $350. The stevens fox is a collectors item. they were only made for a few years.
I think you are confusing the Fox Shotguns with the Savage/Stevens Fox shotguns. The Savage/Stevens Fox shotguns were dressed up 311 actions with ejectors and single triggers and a little better wood. The old real Fox shotguns in good shape are much more valuable. Savage/Stevens bought Fox for the name.
On any kind of tight budget, a Benelli or Beretta A400 is a real stretch.
