SERVING THE UK GUN TRADE SINCE 1958

AYA Imperial

Award-winning Spanish gunmaker AYA continues its quest to create the perfect sidelock with the launch of its Imperial shotgun.

The base for the Imperial is AYA’s bestselling Nº 1 sidelock action, but AYA has taken it to another level of refinement. Extra time has been put into every working aspect of this gun to make sure the trigger pulls are that bit crisper, the closing is even smoother, the handling feels a touch more lively.

The Imperial comes with self-opening action as standard, as well as exquisite hand engraving, bone charcoal case hardening and exhibition quality walnut all feature on this elegant shotgun.

Distributed exclusively in the UK by ourselves, Anglo Spanish Imports (A.S.I), the Imperial was designed specifically for British tastes and is competitively priced compared to its London-made counterparts.
