Eibar is a city. FWIW, I have heard that those guns just marked Eibar were the products of a sort of consortium of small makers. They sold quite cheaply and were not especially noted for durability as parts were soft and tended to not hold up. The guns are often quite good looking on the outside but a nightmare of hand filing and fitting internally.

Some had very nice handling qualities and owners liked them as long as they worked.

If you are trying to obtain parts, I can't help. Maybe someone else can. Parts can be made, but I doubt it would be economically feasible.

There is no collector interest, so the gun is a shooter. I hesitate to make a guess at value because each gun has to be judged on its own.
