I love all types of 16 gauges, boxlocks, sidelocks, old, & new. To me, they’re the perfect bird gun.

If you agree and you’re looking for something made for modern 2 3/4″ ammo, this Orvis/Arrieta at Griffin & Howe is worth looking at. It’s a classy looking, true sidelock, with just about everything you could want in the perfect double barrel shotgun for grouse & woodcock. Unless I’m missing something, it’s also a steal at just $2,450.

  1. Assuming the gun is mechanically sound, that is a REALLY good deal. I owned a different model Orvis Arrieta and it was a very well made gun. These are under-appreciated guns.
