Does anyone know anything about this shotgun??

My mom has a shotgun that her ex-husband gave her in the 70s. It's a 20 gauge and the name on it is "El Reno". That is all I know at this point. Does that sound familiar to anyone here? Thanks in advance!

Harley: Thanks for your patience. I emailed my mom and asked her what markings are on the shotgun. Here is what she wrote:

El Reno
JU40302
1220
850KGS
15.4
Choke M.8

I hope this helps. She says it is a double barrel (not sure over/under or side by side) and that you tip the barrel (like a hinge) to load the shells in. Thanks.

Hi, Shoeless. Your mom's shotgun was made by Jose Uriguen, of Eibar, Spain. My books say that it should be a side by side with blued barrels, a silvered receiver, and double triggers. I hope this helps.
