AyA, an abbreviation of Aguirre y Arranzabal, is one of Spain's oldest and finest shotgun makers. Their guns are now imported into the United States by AyA USA. Handmade in Spain's Basque region, the No. 2 has all the panache of a British-made gun costing multiple times its price.
The No. 2 features hand-detachable sidelocks, cocking indicators, ejectors, a variety of choking set off with excellent rose and scroll engraving and a select English walnut stock and fore end. Other models include the boxlock No. 4 and higher-grade No. 1. All are available in 12, 16, 20, 28 and .410.
