AyA Model 53 12 gauge with full-coverage bouquet & scroll engraving over detachable seven-pin sidelocks. Made in 1961, serial 140738 was made in 1961. Both barrel sets are original and 28 inches long. Chokes are IC/IM and M/F (per choke gauge). Features include ejectors, articulated front trigger, automatic safety, side clips, bushed strikers, game ribs and a checkered butt. Seldom used, both barrels remain fully on face and ring like wind chimes in a trailer park. Full coverage bouquet and scroll graces the action, trigger guard, tangs, opening lever, forearm furniture and the grip cap screw. Additional accents include gold line cocking indicators and gold numbers on the ribs. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 7.0 pounds, length-of-pull is 14.75-inches, drops are 1.6 inches and 2.25 inches, and cast off is approximately .375 inch. CONDITION: Overall metal finish remains about 98% (rust blue on barrels, guard, lever and forend furniture, nickel receiver). Wood retains 98% of the original hand-rubbed oil finish and has only slight evidence of field use, but does have the beginning of a hairline above the right lock and just to the right of the opening lever (can be stabilized and would nearly disappear). The opening lever camps to the right. A leather takedown case with brass corners (no label, separated straps) and snaps is included. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $4,500.
