Wow — now here’s a super cool little gun. Most of old .410s I see have short barrels and stubby stocks. Not this one. It has 28″ tubes and a 14″ LOP, so it’s enough gun for most of us to shoot. I would love to get it in my hands and check it out. […]

In the early to mid 1800s and into the 20th century, someone — or perhaps a family — “made” all sorts of firearms under this name: From target pistols and fancy hammerguns to high-quality sidelocks and plainer boxlocks.

Arrieta is one of Spain’s oldest and most trusted gunmakers. For years, the 557 was their entry-level, no-frills sidelock side by side.  Ever one of these I’ve seen has been sound and well made.
