View Full Version : American Arms Shotguns

August 3, 1999, 02:22 PM
I bought a used AA Silver I at a gun show last year and would like learn a little bit about them. I can't find anything here or elsewhere on the net. All I know is that they are made in Spain (American Arms??). I've hunted with the gun a few times and am very happy with it. Does anyone else here know about these shotguns? Thanks.

Here is the info you requested aboutA A.
American Arms imports shotguns from Spain
and Italy. The Spanish shot guns are manufactured by Zabala Hermanos, Lander and
Indersal. Italian shotguns are manufactured
and TURKEY SPECIAL).American Arms also imported FRANCHI BLACK MAGIC semi auto and
o/u shotguns. The silver 1 model was introduced in 1986-87. In 1988 it was available in two new gages 28 and 410.
The single selective trigger became standard in 1988 and ingraved frames became standard in 1987. Hope this info helps.
