AYA GUNS, OBJECTS OF DESIRE

AYA make double barrelled shotguns in both side-by-side and over-and-under versions, in boxlock and sidelock versions, as well a double rifles, and all models share a common denominator – their exceptional quality. This quality can be appreciated in everything from the steel used for the actions and barrels to the fine figuring of the aged walnut used for the stocks.
The ownership of an AYA shotgun makes one part of a special and exclusive community, which shares the feeling that only those who have shot with an AYA can understand: the fit, the beauty of its lines, the elegance and finesse of the finish and the way it feels like an extension of the shooters’ body make every AYA gun a unique and unrepeatable object.

A fine shotgun is in itself a work of art, as individual as its owner.

Why choose an AYA?

Every AYA gun is made hand by hand by our master gunmakers, with meticlous attention and precision. Each constituent part is carefully shaped and little by little the parts come together until a perfect whole is created: barrel, action, locks, triggers, stock, forend...

An AYA gun is a marvel of gunmaking engineering, a coming together of perfectly fitted and calibrated parts, to ensure an unequaled shooting experience, with a reliability and longevity which defy the passing of time.

AYA chopper lump barrels

Only best guns are made with this style of barrel, as it sets apart traditional classic guns from mass produced ones.

AYA is the only maker in Spain which machines its own barrels and actions. Their barrels are made from steel exclusive to AYA and used only in their own guns, giving them exceptional durability and strength.

Locks

The Steel used in AYA’s locks and springs is unique to AYA. No other gunmaker In Spain uses our steels. It is this characteristic which differentiates us from other makers and gives us the confidence in the reliability and longevity of our guns.

Every AYA lock plate is in itself a work of art.

Replaceable hinge-pin

Over a period of time, and after tens of thousands of shots using a wide variety of cartridge loads, a gun can ‘shoot loose’. To put it back ‘on the face’ the hinge-pin needs to be replaced.

The hinge-pin is fundamental to the correct fit of the barrels and while in many lower-quality guns it is a fixed part of the action and cannot be replaced, all AYA shotguns have a removable hinge-pin, allowing a new lease of life to be given to the gun by the fitting of a new hinge-pin.

Disc set strikers

As with best English guns, AYA guns feature disc set strikers, allowing access to the firing pin without having to remove the lock plate.

This allows for the replacement of pre-fitted firing pins without recourse to a gunsmiths specialist tools and with having to dismantle the gun.
