In 1968 the Gun Control Act, [aka: the GCA of 1968], was passed in the US. Part of the GCA of 1968 required that newly manufactured firearms be stamped/inscribed with a serial number by the manufacturer, and located on the receiver or frame. Firearms made before 1968 were not required to have a serial number and therefore most, [especially house brand and utility grade weapons], lack one, or if present might be found anywhere on the weapon. Now firearms made under contract for a military or government organization, etc. will almost definitely bear a serial number as most militaries & government agencies require one for records purposes, to keep track of who has what.

Where do you find the serial number of a Savage Arms Fox Model B 16 gauge?

It would have to be on the receiver to comply with Federal Laws. But keep in mind that firearms did not require to have serial numbers on them until the "Gun Control Act of 1968". So if your firearm was manufactured prior to that year there was no requirement for it to have a serial number. Most firearms made prior to '68 do not have serial numbers. (All Savage Fox model B shotguns were manufactured pre 1968) Here is a link to some very good information about these shotguns:
