Charles Daley Shootguns

Recommended Posts

duckbill

I am looking to buy a back up gun to have with me when hunting. I was looking on the internet and found Charles Daley guns. They make a 3.5 12 gauge in advantage camo for $350 for a pump. Has anyone ever shot one of these? I am just looking to find someone that uses one and see how they like it.

I noticed that my title says shootguns. Sorry, it should say shotguns. I am not sure how to change it.

I know several guys who shoot the pumps and over/unders and like them. Their O/U are nice guns. I'd avoid the autoloaders though. Lots of problems there. They do have a lifetime guarantee and you'll use it often with the autoloaders.

For that money I would pick up a Remington 870 express or Benelli Nova. I own both guns and I like them alot. No problems.

You can get an 3.5 870 express in camo for $350? If that is true I will go that route. I like remingtons a lot. I own two wingmasters and have never had any problems with either one of them. Both are about 8-10 years old but only shoot 3" shells.

Duckbill,
If you shop around you can get a Benelli Nova 3.5" for $350 in camo. I would check one of them out before buying anything. These guns are work horses. I use mine for a back-up and the thing just plain works. I have been in a duck slough in sleet with the temps at 8 deg. The ice was just busting off the thing with every shot and it just kept going. Check one out, if you can get past the Star Wars looks, they are very nice guns.

For that money I would look at a Mossberg 935, which is a 3.5" autoloader that has great reviews since it's debut last year.
They even come in camo!
Check it out!

Thank you for the responses. I am off to Rainy Lake for 5 days of fishing walleyes. Only one more hour of work to go.

former hunting buddy of mine had a auto loader Charles-Daly, spent too much time in the shop for my blood, particularly whenyou got bills dive bombing your dekes and you can only process 1 shell at a time thus making it a single shot.(pretty funny watching him get pissed though smile.gif)/

Duckbill, Charles Daly started as premier over-under gun maker. Over the last few years they turned into making pumps and autos. I have heard pretty good things about them. I do know that you can get a 3.5 in. pump in the Realtree Hardwoods camo for $299.99 at H & H Sport Shop in Maple Lake. Their Benelli Novas in Max4 camo are $359.99. If you stop in there ask for Jess. If he isn't there tell them that you saw this post. Hope you had good luck and weather at Rainy

Hey Bronco,
My hunting partner is buying one there on Friday. Small world. H&H has sold me on customer service. They can compete with any big store on price but they take care of their customers. Where are you from then that you shop there?

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      You bet!  And I know it! 😁

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies.

      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.
    • Wanderer
      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
