Thumbs up How good is a Charles Days 1892 Lever Action

Hi I have a question that I hope you folks can have some feed back on. I'm looking for a Winchester Clone that I can afford. I know how good a Marlin is but I'm drooling for a Winchester type. Most of the Cimarron and Ubertis are to costly for me. After hunting through the web I found the Charles Daly site. They have a 1892 Lever action w/ 20" barrel, saddle ring, and a large loop ring.
I found one at a local gun shop for about $670.00 NIB. As any one shot a CD?
How accurate are they? I saw a review about the CD brake down lever and the review was talking up the 1.8" @ 25 yards accuracy. I would hope that a rifle should do 1.5" moa at 25 yards. Marlin can do 1.5@ 50 yard with no sweat.
Well any way please let me know what you think...
Thanks CanSlayer

I have no experience with the CD lever actions. I do have one of their 1911's. I bought it new in December, It was made in 2005 and had an issue with the bbl. I posted a question on a 1911 site and Mr. Kassner (President of CD) Pm'd me personally about the problem. He asked for my address and sent me a Fedex pickup tag. Less than 2 weeks later, I had my gun back with a new bbl.
I wouldn't hesitate buying a CD if it's something you like.

The Henry Rifles are pretty well thought of. Never owned anything made by CD.

Don't have any experience with the Charles Daly, but I found this online:

The Daly Model 1892 Take Down Rifle is made in Italy by Armi Sport and imported by K.B.I. of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania...

The story of the CD line has become sad. Years ago, CD imported quality weapons, but for the current time frame, I cannot say that. I would stay away from this company at this time. Anything I hear about their current products is not encouraging.

Armi Sport (Armi Chiappa) is a well known, and well respected Italian gun maker. Their reproduction guns are as well made as any.

You can get a Rossi Puma for less . I have one in .45 LC . Only 2 trips to the range , but a fun little rifle to shoot . :-)

God bless

Canslayer, I would have to agree with Wyr twixter on getting a Rossi or Legacy International Puma they are good guns the only thing though with the Legacy is the annoying safety that sits atop the receiver but if your considering the Marlin you can't go wrong with it. I would go with either one the puma has the look of the old Winchesters but the Marlin is just made a little better.

Drop Steve Young a line at www.stevesgunz.com.
He seems to favor the EMF levers. He also sells them already slicked up, but works on most leverguns, of the variety you mention, and has been quick to answer questions.
Might find something there you like.

+1 on calling Steve.

Also, FWIW, LSI (who sells the Puma) will no longer be importing the Rossi 92's. They'll now be selling Italian made 92's as Pumas. Also, no more .454 Pumas from LSI and no word on other Rossi importers offering them.

Canslayer, I'd be interested to know what you ended up with. I just bought a Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited in .357 mag./.38 Spec. and, so far, I'm pleased. Only been to the range once with it and I may end up re-working the trigger but other than that, I'm satisfied.
