I am trying to help a friend looking for a good used Spanish SxS for field use.
I know nothing about them.
He is looking for a 12 or 20 ga. and has a $1500 budget.
Any help in what to look for is appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Look into Ugartechea shotguns. Usually a few on gunbroker.

No they are not, but the guns are serviceable by any good SxS gunsmith.

I would also highly recommend a Ugartechea. I have had a 20 gauge for over 25 years. Great little gun. Never had a problem with it. I would not hesitate to buy a used one. I have been looking to get a 16 gauge in a certain configuration that I have not located yet. Michael McIntosh, the well known shotgun expert, said the Ugartecheas were the best bargain in a quality Spanish shotgun. Lion Country Supply in PA, who was the main importer of Uggies in the US for many years, has indicated in the past they have a large supply of parts for those guns. So even though guns are not being produced parts should not be a problem. Also as already indicated any good gunsmith can provide repairs if needed.

I've found a couple of nice Parker Hale shotguns by Ugartechea. Several other importers had guns built by Ugartechea but had their names put on them, so don't confine your search to Ugartechea only.

I suggest you hunt for a Derby.
