Orvis (Arrieta) Uplander 12 ga Side by Side sidelock shotgun, serial 37562. 27” barrels converted to Briley chokes, 2 3/4” chambers. Good used condition, receiver and barrels have finish wear but no rust. Bores are excellent, very shiny with no pitting. Forend and barrel serial numbers match the receiver. LOP is 13 3/4”. Drop at comb 1 3/4 “, drop at heel 2 1/4”. Single trigger with automatic ejectors. This gun has an unusual stock with significant cast-off, details below.

Barrel markings: “ORVIS UPLANDER SIDELOCK” in tiny letters on top of right barrel, “12 GAUGE 2 3/4” CHAMBERS” on top of left barrel. “12-70” on both barrel flats, 3 Spanish proof marks and “1000Kp/cm” on each barrel flat, serial number, and misc. other markings.

Receiver markings: “12-70” on both flats, 3 Spanish proof marks on one, with “ARRIETA REGISTRADA” in oval, serial number, and misc. other markings.

Barrels, receiver, hammers, and trigger guard have some decorative engraving.

Stock: The straight grip walnut stock and splinter forend have no cracks or repairs. The stock is “taller” than most, although drop at comb and heel is about average, has a leather covered recoil pad, and a striking amount of cast-off – a bend to the right. We shoot trap with standard Browning BT-99’s (right handed) and expected this gun to put our eyes out of alignment with the rib, but it doesn’t. The cast-off puts the recoil pad more toward the shoulder joint than our Brownings, and that is all. We tried some low-gun practice with the Orvis (which does not go well with our factory stocks) and it works much better than the 99’s – it pops right into position. This gun will fit some people, not others. See our video for more on this gun.

Included: canvas and leather factory case, 6 choke tubes and wrench.
