Default Charles Daly Shotguns

Are Charles Daly shotguns, specifically the autos, quality firearms or not?

I've never owned a Charley Daly, but after handling them they feel like a cheap plastic toy. So, if it was me I would stay as far away from them as possible. If you are looking for a quality cheaper semi auto you might want to check into Stoeger or Franchi.

The older Charles Daly's were and are very high quality firearms. The newer ones like you are talking about are just ok IMHO. If you are planning on doing alot of shooting, i.e. weekly skeet/trap, I'd probably look at something else. If you just need a field hunting gun, I think they will serve you as well as any other inexpensive shotgun.

The new ones are cheap, cheap, cheap. How much and what kind of shooting will you be doing?

I own one.My step son owns one. My daughter owns one. We have two 12's and a 20.

Yes they do have a bit of a cheap feel to them. I never had any reliability issues with ours, though. I like mine.

I use to have a Remington 1100 many years ago. The Charles Daly is not in the same league.

If you just want something to beat the brush for small game, they are good, but you won't impress anyone at the skeet or trap range.

I bought one, a 20 gauge, for turkey hunting and love it. It's light for me and plenty of shotgun for the turkeys. My husband wanted to get me a 12 gauge Benelli like his but I didn't want a 12 gauge....kills my shoulder no matter how tight I hold it. My husband has never killed a turkey with his Benelli...I've killed 3 with my little 20 gauge Charles Daly
