People just being honest. What I can’t understand is the constant misspelling of “Purdey”. WTF is a “Purdy”

No it’s not. It’s ignorance. Straight up.

The original poster asked for a value assessment and that's what he got. William Larkin Moore sold a gun identical to mine at listed $5000, an unengraved gun fitted like a Purdey. It was probably a mid sixties gun like mine, I'm sorry I didn't buy it. The OP's gun is a bit rough and I think the $1500 value mentioned is a fair price, but only if it is a smallbore. My gun and the Larkin Moore gun were underpriced at $5000. The Moore gun sold rather quickly as I recall. Each gun is an individual and early guns can be as well built as the recent guns. I'm glad my gun didn't get the engraving that the OP's gun got. The dogs have no features and most of the engraving was done with a punch, overall very amateurish. Mine and the Moore gun were elegant beyond most any other Spanish gun and are absolutely plain and unengraved, with wonderful case colors.

Hello:

The Pedro Arrizabalaga shotgun in question is a model 110
It was made in 12 and 20 ga. only and has ejectors and demiblock barrels.
Price in the 1983 catalog $81,120 pesetas. The most expensive shotgun cataloged in that year is the "Zozua" model at $486,318.
Your shotgun is the 3rd in price from the cheapest one.

My opinion is that Pedro Arrizabalaga made very good quality shotguns since the begining. Of course engraving fit and finish are much better in the expensive models, but all were solid, well built shotguns that last.

Best regards,

Jose, I think you made my claim that Pedro made exceptionally high quality guns from the sixties. My 1967 gun and the William Larkin Moore sold not too long ago were similar to recent guns made to Purdey like quality. I didn't buy my 28 gauge because it was an Arrizabalaga, I bought it because it was fitted like a Purdey. For an experienced double gun guy, it isn't hard to identify such a gun. Thanks, Jose.
