Does anyone know anything about the Charles Daly Shotguns, in particular, I saw a 12 gauge autoloader at Walmart. They had it for 299.

The gun was extremely light with an aluminum receiver.

I wonder if it is any good. I have not heard anything about their shotguns.

I too saw this gun at Wally World and was wondering the same thing.

No offence, Bushmaster1, but your reply doesn't say WHY is is a good price. I mean, I can get a Remington 870 Express everday for $199...for $175 for the past few months with the rebate.

Anyway, can someone please elaborate on the quality of the shotgun...why it's worth the $299, etc. etc.? Thanks.

well for an auto loading shotgun it is cheap. a pump is normaly much cheaper than an auto loader. so for an auto loader for the price of a pump...

My wife uses one to hunt turkey. Less than 100 rounds so far but no problems except that it won't always completely eject empties on light target loads. Maybe 1 in 10 hang up in the ejection port. 100% with heavy turkey loads but kicks pretty hard because it is so light.

Daly used be a high end brand. Sounds like it's worth the price they're asking-sounds like you get a $300 Wally World auto-loader. You also get 2 or 3 jams per round of skeet. LOST BIRD!!
I think these are made in Japan,but I'm not 100% on that. If you're willing to work on the jam aspect, might be worth the 3 bills.

There is a wrtie up on it in this months guns and ammo. They said that it did great, but did not want to eject with light target loads.

ive got a 30yr old charles daly "broadway" wide rib from back in the days when they used to be high end. it is my main weapon for sporting clays over my perazzi combo and beretta A303. i have heard the new ones have soft recievers and fire control parts

Charles Daly shotguns are made in Turkey. I have one. It's ok anbd so far no jams or failures to eject. They also use the Rem-Chokes and any of the aftermarket chokes that will fit Remington scatter guns. Barrels are not interchangable nor is the gun "southpaw" friendly (safety is located in the same place the Remington auto-loaders are). Overall, not a bad gun for the $$$
