I don't have a clue. Sometime in the past 50 years? :) I believe they're making shotguns for Stoeger IIRC. John

"In 1955, Elias Ruas Amantino, joined the Boito family as a partner and began the manufacture of shotguns in serial numbers. But if Boito was born almost accidentally, its vertiginous growth was not at all fortuitous. It is the result of the will and talent of a group of persons that followed modern industrial objectives aimed at manufacturing a sporting and hunting shotgun that could reach international renown.

In 1962, the first double barrel left the factory's assembly line. Ten years later came out the first over/under shotgun, until now the only manufactured in South America."

my double barreled 20ga hammerless nickel plated Stoeger coach gun is marked this on the side of the receiver. It was purchased in 2002. I think the gun is marked as being made by a company called IGA.
