Hello guys,

First of all it's a pleasure posting to this forum for the first time. I don't know if this is the best place to post this, but it's a shotgun related thing so I suspect I'm on the right track.

I have a particular gun in my collection for which I would like to find out some more information if possible, as the internet has not been of great help.

Now this gun has been given to my father as a gift around the early 90s by a guy who, my father claims, was working at the Husqvarna weapons factory around the 70s to 80s.

My father has always claimed that the gun should have been manufactured around the late 60s to early 70s but I believe this not be true. Unfortunately when the gun was given to him, the guy did not provide any more information regarding it. The gun in question is an Aya-Husqvarna double barrel shotgun.

The weird points of this gun are the following:

1) The gun features a Greener lock, which I seem to undestand was typical to some Husqvarna shotguns but not to Aya ones.
2) The gun features both the swedish proof markings but also features a set of Aya ones. Also in contrast to most Husqvarna shotguns out there, the markings on the barrel both feature the Aya and Husqvarna names which is really odd. Finally the buttstock plate features the Aya emblem.
3) The gun has ear on it's lock which seems to be something that Husqvarna guns did have but not Aya ones.
4) Appearance wise the gun looks like a Husqvarna model 310 but I think the forehand is a bit different. Also if not mistaken the model 310 was produced around the late 40s.

I am attaching a few photos so you can have a look yourself:

So my main question are:

1) Has anyone seen anything like this before.
2) Can anyone provide an estimation as to how old the gun really is.
3) Does anyone have any more information regarding this gun. It's model, designation and what's with all the Aya-Husqvarna thing.
4) Does anyone have an estimation on it's price or rarity.

Thank you all in advance.

Don't know if this will help or not.
Husqvarna Civilian Weapons

I wasn't aware they even make or made weapons. I do have one of the chain saws though.
