    Hello Everyone. I am new to the form and this is my first post. I have been trying to look up any info I can on a Kassnar Zabala shotguns side by side. All I know about this gun is what is on the top of the barrels as follows.

    Expressly made for Kassnar Imports
    Harrisburg, PA

    12 Gauge 3" Magnum Shells - M&F

    By Zabala Hnos S.R.C. - Elbar
    Made in Spain

    SN. 110038

    Have been trying to find out how old this gun is and where I can get a firing pin for it and how to put one in. Any help would be more than I have now.

    You gun isn't very old as old guns go.

    KASSNAR IMPORTS, INC. was an importer and distributor located in Harrisburg, PA.
    Kassnar Imports operations ceased April, 1989.

    As for parts, Zabala is still in business, but I don't think they have any importers in the U.S. at the present time. So, I don't know where you can get parts.

    Any gunsmith should be able to make a new firing pin using the other one as a pattern, and also install it.

    I have a SxS Zabala Hnos. 3" 12 ga., Kassnar arms also. Maybe about the same gun. I got it from a friend maybe 30-35 years ago. He had bought it new probably a couple years earlier, and needed money. He had paid $150 USA money, and I gave him $100, and would sell back to him, when he had the money again. Well, I still have the gun for one reason or another, and he is deceased now. I used it for duck/goose hunting, and for Coyote/fox hunting for many years. It still works fine, although I use it just around my yard to get rid of unwanted critters in the yard. I can say without a doubt, it took a beating in the woods over the years. Hardly ever got cleaned, even after rain, snow, whatever. It just keeps on working flawlessly. The only reason I ever quit hunting with it, is I went to a pump, that gave me 3-5 shot capacity. I suppose this is a low grade gun, but for the $100 dollars I paid, I can say it was worth every penny.
