Here’s a great little double that has everything a bird gun — and a bird hunter — needs. Best of all, it’s in excellent, original condition. It’s on Gunrunner auctions now and the listing ends tomorrow, 12/19, in the afternoon.
AYA is probably the most famous Spanish gunmaker in the world. They’ve been hand-making doubles for decades. In that time, they’ve earned a reputation for good-quality guns at fair prices.
The AYA you see here is one of their Anson & Deeley boxlock models. Even though it’s one the company’s least expensive models, it costs around $4995 brand new today.
