20 gauge Orvis Upland side-by-side double barrel shotgun

20 gauge Orvis Uplander side-by-side double barrel shotgun

I think it’s going go! I’ve been watching this real nice little Orvis/Arrieta 20 gauge for a while now. It has been on Gunbroker.com for at least 6 months, and I’ve plugged it a couple of times as a great deal. But no matter what I’ve done, it just sat there. No interest.

Well, it looks like a couple smart folks are moving on it. It’s easy to see why. First off, this side-by-side has it all: sidelocks, 2-3/4″ chambers, 28″ IC/Mod barrels, 14 1/2″ LOP to a checkered butt, double triggers, and ejectors.

It’s also in real nice original condition, with almost all its color-case hardening and blueing.  And check out the stock. That’s classic Spanish walnut, and it has just enough figure to make the entire gun look great.

    Gregg–it’s a nice gun, but without inspection privileges, I’d be hesitant to bid on any used item. It’s a 3K gun in todays market. Happy New Year!

    I missed that – thanks for pointing it out. “As Is” is a deal killer for me, and it’s foolish for a seller to insist on it (unless he knows the gun has some serious, undisclosed issues).

    Thanks for the post.

    BTW: I emailed the seller about his “As Is”, no inspection/return policy. He said it’s a used gun and he described it accurately. He said to judge him by his Gunbroker.com feedback.
