Juan Esperanza Salvador (1860–1951) and Pedro Unceta (1854–1934), both from Eibar, founded the company in 1908 under the name P. Esperanza for the purposes of the “sale of machinery and accessories of all types”.
At this stage there was no mention of the sale or manufacture of arms, although both partners had previously been engaged in this field on their own account.
The Model 1913 was manufactured by Esperanza Y Unceta and the increased volume of orders triggered their move to a new factory in Guernica.Because of the First World War, the supply of black buffalo horn that was used for the grips was interrupted and it was substituted for wood.The improved model was adopted in September 1916 as the Pistola Campo-Giro de 9mm, Modelo 1913-16.During 1914 1,300 pistols were made before production was halted to include new modifications.The Modelo 1913 was a delayed blowback design, unusual in a gun chambered for a powerful military cartridge.
