Sportarm Innovations

Exclusive models… designed and built with passion.

AYA 12g Dominus

Sportarm launches another new model to complement their award winning AYA “English Game” again working closely with importers ASI and the AYA factory in Spain.

 

Sportarm, renowned for their innovations, have again collated knowledge from their vast customer base with the intention of building the much coveted, perfect, high pheasant shooting, sidelock, side by side. With a lot of our clients using English ‘Live Pigeon’ guns for shooting large, tall bird days, it became apparent that there was a gap in the market for a more affordable model.

Using the renowned AYA model 56, side clipped action as the starting point, Sportarm set to work creating a gun that wouldn’t drift offline when firing 34gram shells and that would still boast perfect balance, perfect handling and desirable aesthetics.

These guns are in production as we speak with demonstration models already available to try at our shop situated at Lady’s Wood Shooting School, Chipping Sudbury just north of Bath. Our intention is to keep a range of guns in stock but also provide a special order service for customers who want their own engraving, stock measurements and timber choice.

 

Prices start from £18,995

Beretta Ribless Game

Another new innovation and gun launch from Sportarm, having seen remarkable sales of our Perazzi Ribless Game, with customers adoring the change in weight and balance and appreciating the new English stock lines, we decided to make a more affordable model.

 

A large percentage of our Perazzi sales have been special orders, the Italian factory being flat out with production inevitably leads to a six-to-eight-month build time.

We wanted to provide a gun that we could deliver in four weeks and it needed to be reliable and affordable. We settled on the popular Beretta Classic, this renowned model offers immediate delivery, excellent timber quality and a mixture of game scene and scroll engraving. We removed the rib in the UK, re-engraved the mono block joint, hand struck the barrels and then English blued leaving a small foresight and breech riblet that’s rounded in the traditional Boss & Co style.

The well figured walnut stock is completely re styled including a swept Prince of Wales grip, the forend rounded and slimed then papered, coloured and sealed, both are then hand chequered and traditionally hand oiled.

 

Prices start from £4,250
