This was in a group I won. I did a search but still don’t know the price range on these? Ejector 25.5” barrels.

Don’t think I would get too excited, Battle.

It should be a nice fast handling shotgun.

I’d be interested in how close the metal to metal surfaces were fit, because historically this brand was known for their close tolerances.

People still refer to them as the “Purdy of Spain”, but while I’m sure they had the ability to make a shotgun as nice as your classic Purdy, I haven’t seen many that compared.

A client of mine had a bespoke pair he hade for himself in the 80's, they were very nice guns. I would not say Purdey quality but very nice none the less.

When I was in Spain in the late 90s, I ordered one--a custom built 20. It was superb, not a Purdy for sure but very nice. I decided it was too nice to carry in the field as I am always putting a gun down to handle a dog so I sold it for something over 9k, enough of a profit to pay for the trip.

Do not confuse this with other Pedro guns. This is an older gun when they were making lesser quality guns. Later they decided they were going to make Spanish best guns.

A number of years ago a friend of mine told me about one at a local gun shop here. He told me what they wanted for the gun which was way under the money. The very next day I streamed over there and looked at it. As it was handed to me and then knew why it was so cheap. It was one of those earlier lesser guns. I was disappointed.

What price would you say this one is valued?

I suspect that PA had the skill to make a best gun, even back in the sixties when they weren't making "best guns". My 1967 unengraved 28 gauge is the best fitted shotgun I have ever owned. The metal to metal and wood to metal is as good as my English guns, including my Purdey pigeon gun made in the best era. I think that each gun made by PA must be evaluated on its own merits. On another subject, is the unengraved PA gun as scarce as recent gun ads would suggest?
