I recently inherited a 20 ga. side by side that I believe is at least 50 years old. The only name I can find on it is Eig Eibar Spain. Not sure if this is the manufactorer or the city it was made in. The serial # is 480xx.
It is stamped 3' chambers and is a hammerless gun. It seems to be a fairly will built gun with a silver reciever that has scroll work and a dog (lab?) on each side.
I would appreciate any history you can give me on this gun as well as its value.

Thank you,
Curtis

Eibar is a city in Spain which has been at the center of the Spanish gun industry for centuries. I don't know what Eig is. I have heard of Eig only once before, at this thread http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtop ... ight=eibar

Eibar is where the gun got proofed, without meaning that it was not made in that area.

I can not find anything on Eig.



If you have not done so allready then take the gun apart and post any marking you find on the action or on the bottom side of the barells

Your gun probably dates from the early 1960's.
I may have some material on EIG so if you e-mail me at vorisek@aol.com with a complete description including all marks on the gun I may be able to provide some more ifo.

Joe, why don't you clue the rest of us in on what Eig is?

Check www.spanishguns.com . they are currently down but keep checking. If you look under the barrels and on the water table you should find markings that refer to manufacturer, date of manufacture etc. I found out a great deal about my Animo shotgun on this site.
