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.

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 […]
