AYAs’ revered XXV/SL shotgun is based on one of the most famous English guns of the early 20th century – the E.J. Churchill XXV – a 25-inch barrel game gun developed by renowned shooting instructor Robert Churchill who combined short barrels with a special high, tapered rib to create an optical illusion of length.

The XXV side-by-side hammerless sidelock comes with exclusive fine floral, ribbon and scroll engraving and is available with colour hardened, old silver or bright finished action. The double-trigger game gun features a straight hand, finely chequered, oil finished walnut stock in grade 2 wood.

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