    I have yet another 12 ga single shooter , I think they are reproducing but its rather uniqe . It has some very nice but worn engraving with of a dog in a field and maybe a bird on both side but each side has its own theme .
    It is a very tight gun and seems to be very well made , also has a quick release on the foregrip for easy take down, almost like it could be a case gun but I doubt it . I almost hate these spain and brazil gun as they are difficult to ID

    Its marking are as follows
    ECHHSH '' - Echave , Arizme?dt y CIA SA - EIBAR made in spain ''nitro'' ? mabey

    “Echasa”-Echave, Arizmendi y Cia SA Eibar Spain . The company was founded about 1911 as Echave y Arizmendi, and their main focus was the manufacture of automatic pistols. The company folded in 1979 after implementation of the 1968 Gun Control Act in the USA curtailed most of their export business to the U.S. Utility grade inexpensive shotguns,

    Is that sling swivel on the barrel welded on ? Kind of looks like a repop of the Winchester single barrel, you know the 37 & the 370.

    No. Sorry, that was the short no.

    The long no is "That gun was not made for that. Please don't try that."

    But long or short, still no.

    I did not say that the gun could not shoot slugs.

    I said it was not made to shoot 3 1/2 inch magnum loads.

    This is sort of like "Can I shoot .444 marlin loads in a .410 shotgun?"

    The answer is yes- at least once. If the question is "Can I do that safely?", the answer is still no. Because a gun fired a shell it was not designed for, and did not fail that time, does not mean it can do it indefinitely.
