I was practicing for my ccw qualify yesterday. I was having issues with accuracy and it was jamming. Cleaned it last night where my barrel link connects to the barrel is cracked. Today is my last chance so I am going to have to go with it but man does that just burn my ass that I have to get a new barrel. Just a rant

decisions, decisions...ditch the handgun and get something else..or..spend the money on a barrel and getting it fitted. Not sure on a drop in from what I have read its hit or miss if it truly fits. If it was a higher end 1911 I would say fix it but...

i've dealt with charles daly before and their customer service is top notch. the president of the company posts on here in the industry forum. i'd be surprised if they didn't make it right.....

Everyone I know that has had a Charles Daly, of any type) has had issues. My gunsmith buddy has seen several also. I just walk on by when I see one at a show or under glass in a shop. A few more bucks will buy something that lasts much better. YMMV.

For the record before this happened this was a great handgun. Never an issue till now with about 3000 rounds thru it. So I have gotten my moneys worth out of it.

The only way I get my monies worth from a gun is if I wear it out before it breaks, I kill enough game that it has paid for itself or it has saved my life.

Did you mean to type 30,000 rounds?

If one of my shotguns broke after 3k rounds, that'd be about 2 months worth.... Not acceptable. We had a kid on the team w/ a CD shotgun... piece of junk. We had to fix it with a stick and some duct-tape once.

For the cost of 45acp 3000 is about 2 years. But if he was trully a gunsmith in the making he would be flutting his barrels with a dremmel and throwing his rifles down the driveway to get the "used" look.

I have a replacement or 2 for this weekend. Will have to get to the CR gun show next weekend to see what I can find for a perm replacement.

I learned from the best? Anything that involves duct-tape is a permanent repair in my book! The stick is only good for 3,000 rounds... Until I get my money's worth out of it

You can usually buy a replacement barrel for a 1911 for under $100 including the link pin. They generally require only minor fitment at most if you are talking a GI type 1911, a little more likely if its a tighter model and most likely would require some fitting if its a match pistol (which I don't think a Charles Daly normally would be).

Just remembered, that some CD's 1911s came with a lifetime warranty. You might want to give them a call and see if yours has a warranty. Also, the President of CD used to be a member here.

winner, winner, chicken dinner...



your first call should be to the manufacturer. you won't get a free repair/replacement from anyone else... give em' a ring.

Called CD and even though I bought it used they are going to fix it free of charge. Off it goes to the UPS.
