The "Imperial" is AYA's first new model since the launch of the Nº 1 "de Luxe": another step in AYA's quest for a perfect sidelock. Only the finest and most experienced craftsmen will work on the ‘Imperial' to ensure the very highest level of quality. The base for the "Imperial" is the Nº 1 sidelock action, but AYA have taken it to another level of refinement to bring it closer still to gunmaking perfection; self-opening action as standard, exquisite hand picked engraving, bone charcoal case hardening and exhibition quality walnut all feature on this elegant shotgun. But the "Imperial" is not just a beautifully finished shotgun; extra time is put into every working aspect of this gun to make sure the trigger pulls are that bit crisper, the closing is even smoother, the handling feels a touch more lively. This masterpiece has not been made to a price, but to a level of finish which is unmatched in Spanish gunmaking.
