I'd say that if you're not going to do alot of range time and it's main use will be a hunting shotgun, they're fine. I've seen too many guys pick these up cheap at WalMart and try to shoot competitive skeet. They ones I've seen, haven't lasted long under these conditions. If your plan is only hunting where you're only shooting a few boxes a year thru it, go for it, but if you're going to do a fare amount of practicing, save alittle longer and buy better. Just my $.02

Last year I bought one of their over/under .410 shotguns. The chrome lining was bad in the lower barrel and within a couple boxes of shells shooting skeet the chrome was just shot out of the barrel. Surprising heavy, the loss of the chrome left the barrel with a cylinder bore choke and the pattern was so very open as to render the lower barrel useless.

I returened it to Daly for repairs and they accused me of "reaming" it out and refused to repair it on their warranty.

I repaired the gun myself by making a reramer and opening the bore and then made a sleeve and soldered it into the bore to restore the choke......but of course there is still no chrome in the bore. It shoots ok but I had to fix it myself.....not everyone is lucky enough to have a machine shop to do this stuff.

It's pure and simpole....Daly just refused to honor their own warranty and I'll badmouth the bastards every chance I get!!!!!

Oh...one more thing.....it's been reported that the (Zastava) action (mauser) that they've been importing now has the third (safety) lug removed as a cost reduction.....can anyone confirm this?
