CHARLES DALY GUNS
These guns are made by Mr. Charles Daly, of New York, in his factory in Prussia. They are made entirely by hand, and are considered by many sportsmen the finest hand-made guns in the market. They have a number of special features that are peculiar to them, and which are said to be very important, as they increase the strength as well as the shooting qualities. These guns are made in Suhl, as Mr. Daly has found that he can get better mechanics in that country than any other to work on fine firearms. This town produces only high grade guns, and there are probably more fine guns made in this place for the aristocracy of Europe than in any other city in the world. Thousands of satisfied customers testify to the shooting qualities, fitting, balance, and beautiful lines of Charles Daly guns.
It is conceded that no gun makers give more attention to details, such as inside lock work, fitting, finishing of barrels, etc., than does the Charles Daly factory. The writer has used these guns with much pleasure and satisfaction. Figure 1 shows the hammerless, made in 8, 10, 12, 16, and 20 gauge; weight to 14 pounds: length of barrels, 26 to 34 inches. Figure 2 shows the three barrel hammerless guns, with open front sight and folding peep sight. It is made in 12 or 16 gauge shotgun barrel, .30-30 or .38-55 rifle cartridges; weight, 7 1/2 pounds; length of barrel, 28 inches. The general idea of a three-barrel gun is that it must necessarily be clumsy, heavy and ungainly. This notion vanishes on seeing the Daly three-barrel gun. It balances, handles, and weighs the same as any high grade double barrel shotgun. The shooting of both shotgun and rifle barrels is equal to the best shotgun or rifle. There is no more desirable gun made for use in countries where both large and small game abound. Charles Daly guns are high grade only—prices ranging from $90.00 to $500.00.
