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.

Another option in a good quality, well constructed Spanish side-by-side shotgun is the relatively inexpensive Aramberri Star Gauge shotgun that was imported by Interarms in the late 1960’s to mid-1970’s. The barrels and action are strongly built with quality steel and are essentially “bullet-proof”, capable of standing up to a lifetime or more of shooting. They were available in both 20 and 12 gauge versions with either double triggers or a single trigger Deluxe model. Both can also shoot 3” shells if desired. While these guns are not seen regularly, there are a few that come up for sale from time to time and are definitely a solid buy for the money. Most can be purchased in decent condition for $500 to $675.

I vote Ugartechea as well. You will have to find them used, but great deals can be had. I picked an Excel Arms imported model 30 for $500 and cannot believe the value. It has been a tremendous gun. Some of the importers are very plain jain, the Excel guns have a little etching around the receiver and engraved fences. I'd recommend one.
