a friend of mine has a auto in 20 gauge and really likes it. he had some problems with it when he first got his. he would pull the trigger and all three shells would fire. once the problem was fixed, he couldn't be happier. very easy carrying shotgun. a local gunsmith that we frequent has looked at some of the charles daly shotguns and said the guts look pretty good. the gun shop i used to visit sold many of the pumps and autos in 12 and 20, and said he never had one come back and the guys really liked them alot.
the problem my friend had was fixed by charles daly directly. he couldn't have been happier dealing with them.
he bought the shotgun from wal mart. they were another story, go figure.
i won't open that can of worms, but it definately was a learning experience on both of our parts about good customer service.
overall, once again, he is very satisfied and if he had to get another shotgun, i know for a fact that he would buy another one.

Charles Daly

I just got Daly synthetic 12 ga. a couple of weeks ago. I found that the action tends to be load sensitive. It doesn't like light skeet loads. It partial ejects, stove pipes etc. It eats up standard AA loads with no problem. Loosening the magazine cap from tight to just a half turn from tight seems to make a difference as well. Go fiqure. I polished the action rails with 400 grit, that alone smoothed up the action quite a bit. The trigger pull is around 3 1/2 lbs out of the box, real nice for factory-stock. I ordered an external skeet choke from Daly over the web and received an internal skeet choke. That order took about two weeks, it was slow and wrong. I needed an o-ring since this gun from Wally World only came with the packed extra. I e-mailed Daly, and got that within a week. For the money I think I got a good value. Time will tell. Oh yeah lifetime warranty from Daly, I hope I don't need to use it. Ken :roll:
