Fantastic high original condition Parker Bros. A Grade Lifter 10ga with case- Best example I’ve seen

Fantastic high original condition Parker Bros. A Grade Lifter 10ga with case- Best example I’ve seen: An absolutely beautiful Parker lifter – this is a fantastically engraved all original Grade 6 gun (A Grade) which was the top of the line when new. The gun is a light 10ga with factory original 28″ best quality Damascus barrels. Splinter forend is beautifully checkered with fully engraved latch release. Sidelock receiver is near full coverage engraved as seen in the photos and the engraving on the top tang and the trigger guard are gorgeous and unique- most certainly the work of Harry Gough though I dont see a signature on the gun. Gold capped grip buttstock is gorgeous with great figure and checkering and terminates with its original engraved skeleton buttplate. The carving and engraving on the breech fences is as nice as I’ve seen!  The gun remains in beautiful all original condition. Barrels with about 85% original Damascus pattern with some thinning in the grip area. Stocks are excellent, sound and original with beautiful finish. Locks have around 2/3 of their original rainbow case colors remaining and frame with about 1/2 of its original color- all engraving is crispy and well defined. The lifter and trigger guard bow have a great deal of their original blue remaining as seen in the photos. Bores are bright and shiny. Mechanics are perfect. Simply put – they don’t come any nicer than this! It’s the best light 10 lifter I’ve offered and is as fresh as a spring daisy. Price: $21,950*

For decades now, Spanish shotguns have been one of the best values out there — especially if you can buy a used one that’s in excellent shape. From what I can see, this pre-owned AYA is in that kind of shape.

I’m not sure what grade it is — made a AYA No. 2 — but it looks like a decent gun. I like the shaping of the action, the color-case hardening, and the wood. The engraving is OK, but it works with the rest of the gun. Overall, this 20g looks like a great little bird gun.

AYA 16g No. 2 Sidelock SxS Shotgun

This nice looking 16g AYA shotgun is on Gunbroker.com now. It’s listed at NO RESERVE and the sale ends Wednesday, 3/24/2021 @ 3:21 PM EST.

The seller’s calling this side-by-side a No. 2, which AYA says is its “affordable sidelock double gun”. To me, it looks like a great grouse gun. It has a longish length of pull (14 3/4″) and it weighs just 5lbs 13oz. If I were bidding on it, I would ask for some more pics and info on it — specifically, I would want to see the proof marks, and I would want to know if the gun is tight, on the face and fully functional. I would also want to know if there are any issues with the barrels (bulges, dents, repairs).

AYA 16g No. 2 Sidelock SxS Shotgun
AYA 16g No. 2 Sidelock SxS Shotgun

I would ask about seller’s inspection/return policy, too. Sellers should give you 3 days to inspect a gun and allow you to return it within that timeframe if it has issues.

I’ve always heard good things about AYAs. Michael Yardley reviewed an AYA No. 1   for The Field back in 2008 and liked it. I guess the No. 2 is one step down from that gun.

The History and Legacy of Side by Side Shotguns, from Project Upland …

Why shoot with a SxS shotgun? In this film from Project Upland, Joel Penkala tell you why: The History and Legacy of Side by Side Shotguns – A Grouse Hunting Tradition

“For Joel Penkala, Marketing Manager of Griffin and Howe, the idea of a legacy shotgun has personally come alive through the pages of grouse hunting classics. At its core, it is simply the shotgun that is truly worthy of being passed down from one generation to the next, a proven and treasured implement that will continue to not only meet but will exceed the demands of upland covers across time and space.”
