AYA Nº 1

AYA’s flagship Nº 1 shotgun is synonymous with craftsmanship and traditional style. First introduced by the Spanish gunmaker in the 1950s, the prized side-by-side has all the hallmarks of a best English game gun.

Distributed exclusively in the UK by ASI, the hand-built double-trigger sidelock is designed specifically for British tastes and offers an affordable alternative to its London-made counterparts.

Weighing approximately 6¾lb, AYA’s Nº 1 is modelled closely on a classic Holland & Holland with detachable locks, articulated front trigger and optional self-opener. The Nº 1 is engraved in classic Purdey-style rose-and-scroll and is stocked in top-grade walnut. The double-trigger sidelock comes with fixed-choke 28in chopper lump barrels as standard but other lengths are available to order.
