AOC/SG Boxlock Game Guns

Left is a AOC/SG 12 Ga.
Right is a AOC/SG 28 Ga.

The design of the AOC/SG is the result of a cooperative effort between Armas Ugartechea and Aspen Outfitting Company (AOC) begun in 1999. These dynamic, fast handling boxlocks embody all of the features found on a traditional bird gun.

Created to satisfy the style of handling and shooting that American game birds demand, these aesthetically distinctive firearms represent the best value in a SxS bird gun in the world today.

The features represented on the model AOC/SG have been tested and refined over thousands of hours of use by the students of Aspen Outfitting Company’s Shooting School, as well as by the clients of our wild bird hunts, in both North and South America.

Our confidence in these guns is supported by a Warranty for the lifetime of the original owner against defects in material and workmanship. We employ a warranty gunsmith who has worked with the production department of Armas Ugartechea (at the factory in Eibar, Spain) and has a full inventory of factory-made parts in stock.

   

Terry Wieland in his second edition of Spanish Best, The Fine Shotguns of Spain, says "The AOC/SG is a nicely balanced boxlock that has the feel of a much more expensive gun, and (Jon) Hollinger has worked closely with Ugartechea.... putting an importer who knows wingshooting together with a gun maker who really knows guns can produce a fine product at a reasonable price. I don't know of any American importer who has worked more closely with a Basque company to perfect a modestly priced gun for the American market."

The March/April 2003 edition of Sporting Classics states "Hollinger has developed an excellent series of light game guns in close association with Basque gun maker Armas Ugartechea.... the AOC/SG is a light game gun with many options found only in more expensive sidelocks, including chopper lump barrels, inlaid foreand escutcheon, Southgate-style auto ejectors, articulating front trigger, upgraded walnut with 24 PPI checkering."
