Spanish O&U/"Excelsior" Mdl:741E/Mfg by Francisco Sarriugarte.
Does anyone have information of any kind about this 12ga O&U.?
Side Lock action; Single non-selective trigger; Ejectors; All metal beautifully engraved & accented by (5) gold inlaid game birds. Pistol Grip Stock & Field Type Forend are highly figured walnut w/ high gloss finish and average quality checkering.
The 28" V R barrels are fitted with (5) choke tubes. Mating surfaces of most of the metal in the action are "engine turned". Wood to Metal fit is excellent. Action lock-up is a "modified Greener Type" Cross Bolt. A Spanish Proof House certificate indicates a 1985 manufacture year.

Any information, of any type, on the gun or the manufacture (Sarriugarte) would be appreciated.
