Arrieta – Model 557 – Churchill Style Matched Pair 20g Sidelock SxS Shotguns

Following the theme of this morning’s post, here’s are two more guns long on quality and short on price. They’re a pair of 20g Arrietas built with Churchill-style 25″ barrels & narrow ribs. They feature genuine hand detachable sidelocks, ejectors, decent engraving and even well cut drop points. At $5500, they’re a steal.

Short-barreled shotguns have always been around, and at times, they’ve caught on as fads. Francotte exported a lot of doubles with 26″ bbls to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century. They were marketed as “brush guns”.

Robert Churchill introduced his famous XXV shotguns with 25″ barrels around the time of the first World War and they were popular for decades. These guns are built on Robert Churchill’s principles. Like their British counterparts, I’m sure they’re very lively, dynamic doubles, perfect for grouse and woodcock hunting.
