JBL Arms Co. Dover,Pa ?

Has anyone ever heard of them? I've searched and can't find any information on them. My Dad bought an over/under new in 71 or 72, he doesn't remember exactly. The gun has JBL Arms on the barrel, it has Italian proof house marks. But I can't seem to find out who made the gun. It was made in 1971 according to the stamps. It's a 12 ga. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the only web page I could find with a direct reference to JBL Arms on shotguns:

AYA Catalog from 1972

Looks like they were the state side distributor for the Spanish Arms company AYA.

Also found this link, which shows that JBL might also have been the distributor for other European makers as well:

Grew up in Dover and the name doesn't ring a bell, but then in '72 I was 6 years old. Next time I see my dad I'll see if he knows anything.
