The Nº 1 ‘de Luxe’ has been acclaimed by experts around the world as one of the most beautiful guns available today at any price. It is a variation on the proven AYA Nº 1, which has been in production for more than 40 years. The major difference between the Nº 1 and the “de Luxe” is the engraving. The “de Luxe” is engraved with a bold foliate scroll design, similar to that made famous by Holland & Holland. It is stocked in exhibition-grade walnut.
The Nº 1 “de Luxe” imported to the United Kingdom by Anglo Spanish Imports is engraved and finished in England by British craftsmen, including the engraving, stock finishing, blueing, and action hardening. “de Luxe” guns made to order for clients elsewhere are engraved and finished by Basque master craftsmen at the AYA factory.
