Laurona was founded in Eibar during 1941 by four craftsmen (hence the name Laurona, which in Basque, means "of the four"), each a specialist in a discipline of shotgun mfg. Laurona made SxS guns until 1978, at which time they discontinued SxS models in order to concentrate on the O/U marketplace.
Laurona manufactured good quality O/U shotguns and O/U express rifles/combination guns. Beginning 1992, Laurona switched from a one-piece, demi-block type of fabrication to a monobloc system, which has improved strength characteristics while reducing weight in their X-Series line of shotguns and express rifles.
