Help ID a Stoeger Shotgun

I have a Stoeger 12 ga. single-barrel shotgun with a 32" barrel and I would like to know more about it. Top of barrel is stamped Stoeger Arms Corporation and Made in Spain but the lettering in between is obscured by engraving, appears to be "AMERICA". Rear of trigger guard is also stamped Made in Spain. Barrel stamping under front hand guard is CHOKE 17.3 18.5. No other markings I can see, heavily engraved.

Any info would be appreciated.

Possibly made by AYA- Aguirre y Aranzabal.

Stamped logo on the upper left isn't the same as AYA but the rest looks like some AYA's I found pics of.

Some Stoeger single barrel shotguns were produce and imported by Stoeger and ERA. The manufacturing firm Boito in Brazil. For some reason I cannot open your photos to compare them with others. But this should get you started.

Looks like it's a Sarasqueta; very few minor differences between mine and the one in the auction below. Now I'm wondering the age.

A goose gun probably and Sarasqueta. I worked there in the early 70's and saw those laying around stil waiting for parts, they also had a double barreled 10 ga. 3.5 Mag goose gun by Zabala of Spain. They liked to double on firing!
