Online auction alert: AYA sidelock 20g, No Reserve ….
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.
It’s on Gunbroker.com now, and the the online auction listing ends today, 8/6/2021 @ 9:35 PM ET. Here’s more info about this gun from the seller:
