Synopsis: The extraordinary shotguns produced by the craftsman of Spain's Basque Country are no longer a secret. Their shooting qualities, beauty, and great value have been extolled by a host of experts. Sportsmen of considerable means and everyday bird hunters alike have found guns that suit their tastes from such makers as AYA, Arrieta, Ugartechea, and many more

In this vastly expanded treatment of the subject, Wieland provides a completely updated guide to the guns and gunmakers, reliving history, going inside manufacturing facilities, discussing design and assembly, touring the region, and sampling its food, wine, and warmth. There are more than 150 color photographs to accompany the text and show precisely how the guns and workrooms look. There are three new maps, as well, including one that will allow visitors to navigate Eibar like a seasoned veteran.

From the Back Cover: The greatest gun-making town in the world is not Obernsdorf, Germany, nor Birmingham in England, it is Eibar, Spain. Unassuming and unpublicized, this little city produces some of the finest double guns in the world. Terry Wieland provides a thorough guide to the guns and their makers from this small city in Basque Country, reliving history, touring manufacturing facilities, discussing design and assembly, and exploring the region to sample its food, wine, and warmth. It is an unparalleled journey.

Book Description The Derrydale Press. Lanham, Maryland. (1994) 2014 paperback edition. 4to paperback (177 x 254mm). Ppxx,332. Colour and b/w photographs, illustrations, maps. Card covers. Slight use but a very good copy. This is a detailed account of the gunmakers of the Basque Country, on the North Atlantic coast. Often established for centuries, the makers of this region have long produced both high quality bespoke weapons and mass produced variety. In recent years, overseas shooters have come to appreciate the quality of Basque shotguns, at a price often rather lower than that of their competitors in other European countries. Terry Wieland's book is divided into three sections - the first historical, the second examining makers of note who are currently active, and the third a series of appendices. These appendices deal with; ordering a custom shotgun, glossary of English and Spanish gunmaking terminology, Spanish proof and the Eibar proof house, bibliography, Spanish shotgun makers (1972), and a directory of Spanish custom gunmakers (2001). Aimed at an American audience who are far less aware of the Basque country than European shooters, this is an interesting and readable book about a gun making region which has received far less attention than its equivalents in, say, Britain or Italy. .
