AYA Express Double Rifle and this is a superbly made firearm. The metal finish and wood to metal fit is magnificent, the gun points like a dream.

As leading makers of fine sidelock shotguns, AYA were often asked by the many shooters who own and enjoy their products when they would produce a double rifle which they can add to their armoury. In response to these regular requests they have taken this idea forward, based on their twin principles of modern technical efficiency and traditional craftsmanship.

With this perspective, AYA joined forces with a like-minded manufacturer, Merkel, to develop a double rifle which combines AYA’s classic lines and balance with Merkel’s technical expertise and are proud to announce the result of this collaboration – The AYA Express Rifle.

The Nº 1 “de Luxe” has been acclaimed by experts around the world as one of the most beautiful guns available today at any price. It is a variation on the proven AYA Nº 1, which has been in production for more than 40 years. The major difference between the Nº 1 and the “de Luxe” is the engraving. The “de Luxe” is engraved with a bold foliate scroll design, similar to that made famous by Holland & Holland. It is stocked in exhibition-grade walnut. The Nº 1 “de Luxe” imported to the United Kingdom by Anglo Spanish Imports is engraved and finished in England by British craftsmen, including the engraving, stock finishing, blacking, and case hardening. “De Luxe” guns made to order for clients elsewhere are engraved and finished by Basque master craftsmen at the AYA factory.

Model Nº 56 was first made in 1941. It is AYA’s top competition double, and a long-time favorite of live-pigeon competitors around the world.  Like guns for trap and skeet competition, pigeon guns must be strong, to endure the firing of hundreds of thousands of rounds. They must also be heavy enough to absorb recoil during days of gruelling competition, yet handle smoothly and point naturally.  To accomplish this, the Model Nº 56 employs a frame that is wider and heavier than normal. This is augmented by a Purdey triple-bite bolting system, and sideclips to eliminate lateral flexing. The gun is normally made with a pistol grip and beavertail forend, to allow the shooter a solid hold on the gun. Barrels are extra long - up to 30 inches - and can be ordered with a ventilated rib.  The stock and engraving are the same quality as the Nº 1, although special attention is paid to the strength of the grain through the grip, because of the extra stresses of competition.

Nº 53 (also known over the years as the 53E and 53B) is one of the oldest models in the AYA catalogue, having been in production since the early 1950s.  Both Jack O’Connor and Col. Charles Askins wrote glowingly about the Model Nº 53, which O’Connor described as one of the best values to be had in a side-by-side shotgun anywhere.  The Nº 53 is similar to the Nº 56, in that it employs a Purdey triple-bite and sideclips for maximum strength. However, it is built on a standard-size frame and is slimmer and lighter than the Nº 56. It is engraved in a traditional European ribbon-and-floral pattern.

One of the most famous English guns of the early 20th century was the Churchill XXV — a 25-inch barrelled gun developed by the English shooting instructor, Robert Churchill. Churchill combined his short barrels with a special high, tapered rib

which gives the shooter an optical impression of length. The XXV was especially popular with shooters of smaller stature, and retains a following to this day. For many years, AYA has offered guns in an “XXV” configuration, in both a high-quality

sidelock, and in a less expensive boxlock model.
