Charles Daly Shotguns any Good?

I've been looking at a few semiautomatic shotguns, but most all of them are too expensive. Charles Daly makes semiauto shotties for reasonably cheap. I picked one up at a gun store near my house, and seemed pretty light-weight and cheap (as in low quality). I've never heard anything bad about them, but at the same time they don't appear to be all that popular. Anyone have a Charles Daly? (Is Daly pronounced Daily or Dalley?) Thanks ahead of time for any info.

You may not be looking at Charles Daly now, but I have a 20ga auto that is sweet. I have shot 300 rounds though it killing clay pigeons over the last 4 years. I bought it used. I noticed yesterday that the magizine cap was cracked. I called up today to purchase a new one. They have one on the way for free. JC

The current CD shotguns have the highest return rate (for failures) of any brand sold in the U.S. Make what you want of it....

The quality of the parts in the C D guns is not near as good as the major manufacturers in quality of metal, fit and finish. You would be better off finding a good used Rem, Mossy, Win etc. If you just want a low priced weapon that will not see a lot of use, the C D might be OK. If you plan on shooting it a lot, it will not be one of the one's that you will hand down to future generations of your family.

Charles Daly is actually not a manufacturer, but a brand. They import arms made by other companies and market them as CD. Thus, quality can vary greatly from model to model.

Great point. I still have not sen what I would call a quality firearm from CD.
For someone tight on money, they might be an option. I would still rather find a good used weapon from one of the manufacturers spoken of earlier.

I had a CD as my first shotgun and it was a peice of garbage. Ever since it fell apart I have been an 870 guy, the 870 is bullet-proof and the aftermarket part selection is huge. If you want an affordable auto go w/ a Mossberg 930. I recently purchased one w/ ghost ring AR type sights, mag extension, and high power mag spring. I also threw a limbsaver pad on it. Between the gas system and the limbsaver I can shoot birdshot as fast as I can pull the trigger. Another great thing about the 930 is I can cycle the lightest target rounds or heavy 3" magnums without problem. You can find them at sporting goods stores for under $500

I have Charles Daly 20 gauge auto. It is just as good as a remington and a lot cheaper. I use it on dove fields and rabbit hunting and have run about 5 cases of shells thru it with no problem. it does like the high brass shells better just like the remington. Rem-chokes also fit it.

I signed up for this forum just to inform you my Charles Daly and my best friends are both quality guns. If your looking for a gun in that price range I recommend a stoeger model 2000 or 3000.
