AYA NO. 3 Magnum
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 28€" 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
This model from 1974 has a 14 inch LOP, with 30"€ barrels with 3€" chambers choked for fowl at full and full under a file rib. It has the beaver tail fore-end and the pistol grip common on fowling pieces. It also sports a high fluted comb.
I have however about a dozen 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.
The barrels need to be re blued.
