Description

AYA produced many thousand box lock non ejectors during the 1960'€™s 70'€™s and 80'€™s and it was on these study workhorses that their reputation of reliability and durability was based. Most of the shotguns were 12 bore field guns with standard stocks and game chokes on 282€ barrels, the model evolved by the late 1960'€™s into the Yeoman.
They also produced the No. 3, still styled for the British market based on classic Holland and Holland designs with an Anson and Deeley type action but made to a higher standard and leaving more room for a wider range of stock and barrel length, wildfowling specification and bore choices. For about £30 more than an equivalent Yeoman you can have a more sophisticated and individual gun. Mine usually cost £195-£215
This model from 1969 has long 15 inch LOP on a nicely grained stock which usually meant a special order, with 26"€ barrels choked for game at ½ and full under a file rib.
I have however about a dozen other examples of the same model with different barrels, stocks and chokes to ensure a perfect fit or make a composed pair to suit individual shooting requirements.
