The Eibar province of Northern Spain is rich with craftsmen. Some make original designs and many produce copies of other makers products. Browning, Colt and S&W handguns are probably the most copied firearms in this region.
It is often impossible to determine who made the gun as it was not made by a "factory" or "company", it was made by an individual or small cooperative in a town.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
