Has anyone got access to this website? I’m Vodafone and it’s chinned me off. I just need a manufacturing date for my S/S if you don’t mind. Ser no. is 29545
It seems they merged with Lauren some time ago. They have a website which mentions "Zabala"Thank you all for trying
There was a website I saw sometime ago and for the life of me cannot think of it's name. It showed lots of Spanish proof marks with a date range for each, plus other info that would enable you to approximate the date.There were three separate companies using Zabala in their names. Zabala Hermanos were a stand alone company but are no longer trading.
My son got a sxs made by them two years ago.
Like all Spanish gun makers they followed wed (since I think the 1950s and perhaps even earlier) a standard Spanish numbering convention at the proof house. You can decode it to get the manufacturer and year of manufacture from the letters and numbers. We did it for the Zabala Hermanos and an AYA.
We had to go to generic Spanish serial number websites to do it, can’t recall which ones.
The Zabala Hernandez branded websites I found to be defunct and a bit of a rabbit hole not taking us anywhere useful.

I also recall there was a note that the Spanish were notorious for not recording things correctly.
Not the one I saw, your's looks more comprehensive, good find.Was it this one?
3" Sure it wasn't a naval gun?
