Universal Firearms of Hialeah, FL. Imported some double barrel shotguns and Internet searches seem to indicate they were made by Armas Erbi SCI, Spain. We also found reference to Zabala Hermanos S.A., Spain as the maker. One of our auction viewers verified that it was made by Erbi (Thanks Cookie1).This SxS Double Wing 2016 model is marked Made In Spain. Universal Firearms was founded in 1958 and was sold to Iver Johnson Arms in 1983, moved from Florida to Arkansas and the company was closed and liquidated in 1987. The Double Wing 2016 has 3” chambering, 28’ bbls., is a boxlock with engraved receiver, extractors, double triggers, a checkered pistol grip stock and a checkered beavertail forearm. The stock & forearm have a few nick, dings & bruises but retain most the original finish. It has a small repairable crack developing where it meets the frame. The LOP is 13 1/2" - 14". There is a screw missing on the underside of the frame. The barrels are blued and have ~98% of the original finish with a couple of light scratches but no rust or corrosion. The bores look very good, shinny & no sign of rust or corrosion. The left is Full choke and the right is Modified. The frame has a couple of small dings and a scratch but retains ~99% of the original blue finish. The action is nice and tight open and closed.

BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…
We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve buy to end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
