It appears they were at least two importers at different times. JT

From the next to last post on the linked page. (1 of 4 pages in the thread, some with pics)

"Armas Marixa made utility grade SxS's. The barrels and locking lumps are not chopper or demibloc lumps as employed on high grade guns but, rather a brazed lump design. Per G.T. Garwood,
although brazed lumps are certainly servicable and acceptable, "chopper lumps are strongest and are to be preferred". Some high end German guns also have brazed lumps.

These guns were originally imported by Ed Paul's Sporting Goods of Brooklyn, NY in the early 1970's. The price for a Premier Ambassador in 1970 was $144.-. A Stevens Model 311 sold for
$94.50- at that time. The 1978 edition of Gun Digest lists the Premier Regent at $203.- and the Ambassador at $278,-. A Savage-Stevens Model 311 was priced at $152.50 and the Savage-Fox Model B-SE at $228.50-. These guns represented a decent value then, as well as, now but, are not necessarily a bargain."
