Best Quality Boxlock


Barrel Length

Please call to purchase


The Nº 4 “de Luxe” is AYA’s most luxurious boxlock model and perhaps the most English of all AYA’s shotguns.

In the UK this model is known as the “Best Quality Boxlock”, and rightly so, for it is very much a ‘best’ gun and is the boxlock equivalent of the AYA Nº 1 sidelock. In common with the Nº 1, the Nº 4 ‘de Luxe’ is fitted with chrome nickel steel chopper lump barrels, and highly figured walnut stock, treated to a high lustre oil finish, finely hand chequered and fitted with a solid gold initial oval. The scalloped action mirrors the very finest English boxlocks, and the fine rose and scroll engraving is entirely executed by hand. The handling and balance of this gun make it a joy to use.
