Arrieta is one of Spain’s best known gunmakers, and they’ve been making quality side-by-sides for decades. The 871 is there version of a Boss Round Body, and it features a sleek-looking rounded action and stock. William Larkin Moore lists a new 871 at $10,500, and I doubt it would be as nice as the one you see here.
