Since , Arrieta has been synonymous with the finest handmade shotguns and side by side rifles. Arrieta exclusively supplies the best Spanish sidelock shotguns, hand-made by a team of very skilled gunsmiths, including those who worked with the company following their parents footsteps. Such an exceptional quality is noticeable in the fine materials used and the carefully executed details. State of the art engraving, hand-applied oil finish to the wooden elements of the finest walnut are examples of the dedication and devotion that stand behind an Arrieta shotgun and side by side rifle. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my email and also for researching the names of the craftsman that worked on my gun. One of the reasons that I selected your company was the good reviewes that your guns have received and especially Terry Wieland's revised second edition of his book Spanish Best.

AYA shotguns, made in the Basque country of Spain, have been around longer than any of us can remember. Somehow, AYA has managed to survive the roller coaster economics of the Spanish firearms industry longer than most. Before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, which basically tore Spain apart between July and April , AYA primarily made receivers and parts for other gun companies. Then, of course, the Second World War began in August Ravished and exhausted from the just concluded Civil War, Spain stayed neutral, despite close ties to Italy and Germany.

I bought one thinking it was a yoeman, however, it isnt, it doesnt say yoeman on it and my old one did. It was proofed in It has a stunning bit of wood on it and Id like to know what model it is, its also mark I think the is the bore and chamber length Is it an ejector,any engraving on the action
The AyA No. It is a good gun, predictable in use - and would, no doubt, give years of sterling service - but it lacked the handling finesse of the Holland Royal upon which it's based though, of course, it is much less expensive. It has a classic specification: 28in barrels, double triggers, concave rib, colour hardened, tight rose-and-scroll engraved action, and weighs just over 6. First impressions are of a good-quality, well-finished, game-gun of traditional form.
