Hi all. I'm new to the site and have a question concerning an AYA 12ga double I brought back from Spain in the late 90's. How can I tell if it is a model 2 or model 53? I have been looking on line and I have "Spanish Best", but I really don't know what I have except for a beautiful gun from the late 50's. I also have a Victor Sarasqueta (model 4E I believe) that looks very similar to the Aya. thanks

The number 53 has sideclips and the engraving is in a different style more of a Belgian ribbon genre and is hand engraved. If you can get the locks off the parts are gold washed on the 53.

I have taken the left side off and have not noticed any gold, I have not tried doing anything on the right side. Thanks

Post a picture and we'll be able to tell you what model you have. There's Models 1,2 and a 117 which I own,all 3 are SLEs and the only apparent difference is is the engraving.

There are major differences between a Model 2 and a Model 53. The Model 2 is essentially their mass produced and very popular "good quality" sidelock gun, the Model 53 is also a sidelock gun, but a "Top Of The Line" one at that. To someone that knows the differences, the distinctions are immense. The Model 2 has been an extremely popular "mass market priced" gun, better than some of their lower grades, and a good field gun, but the Model 53 is in a different league. It is essentially a scaled down "field" version of their Model 56 competition gun. If you didn't see gold plating (washing) on the lock parts you removed, there's no point in taking off the other one, it's not a Model 53.

Can you post photos for a positive identification?

Cruciform trigger plate in foto #3. No "ears" on the triggerplate on my numba 2 if that proves anything.
