One of the most famous English guns of the early 20th century was the E.J Churchill XXV – a 25-inch barreled gun developed by the English shooting instructor, Robert Churchill. Churchill combined his short barrels with a special high, tapered rib which gives the shooter an optical impression of length. The XXV was especially popular with shooters of smaller stature, and retains a following to this day.

For many years, AYA has offered guns in this configuration, in both a high-quality sidelock and a less expensive boxlock model.
