AYA No 4 BoxLock Deluxe 16 Ga Best Quality Shotgun

In the late 1950’s two English brothers set up an import company in Spain. They were impressed with the manufacture and finish quality of one manufacturer located in the Basque country; Aguirre y Aranzabal. They were also impressed with how attentive the company was when the brothers explained the details English shooters were keen on. The result was the No. 4 – a refined Anson and Deeley boxlock with replaceable hinge pin and bushed firing pins, chopper lump barrel construction, straight stock and other features that was significantly more affordable than the equivalent London made guns and delivered without sacrificing one whit on quality or handling. This example is a No. 4 “Deluxe” or Best Quality gun made in 1999 and features 27” barrels with concave rib, 2-3/4” chambers, CYL and open MOD chokes (the gauge falls between IC and MOD), auto ejectors, single trigger, auto safety, case colored scalloped frame with 95% coverage of fine rose and scroll engraving which is echoed on the forend iron, guard and barrel rib, gold inlayed safety “S”, high grade walnut stocks with double bordered 24 LPI checkering, classic teardrop finials at the side panels and oval monogram plate on the toe line. Drops are 1-3/8” & 2-1/8” while the pull is 14-3/8” and weight comes in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces. With the CG just slightly forward of the center of the hinge pin it handles beautifully. It retains 98% blue with a few light scratches and a cluster of tiny rust spots on the bottom of the right tube about 4” from the forend while the bores are perfect mirrors and the frame retains about 92% case color with thinning to silver on the lower edges. Lock-up is 100% on face and tight as a bank vault with the lever coming to rest well right of center while the stocks are sound with very thinly scattered light to moderate handling marks. There’s a tiny crack at the end of the tang and another on the left tang at the rear of the safety. They are short and appear to be completely stable and might have been reinforced internally as there is a New England Custom Gun stamp on the left barrel under the forearm indicating service by that highly esteemed top-notch gunsmith company. All screws are indexed. A really beautiful rendition of the English Best Quality double gun.
