Charles Daly “made” some of my favorite double-barrel shotguns. I say “made” because Charles Daly was an importer and a marketer, not an actual gunmaker. Starting around 1875, he formed a partnership with August Shoverling and together they imported firearms under name “Charles Daly”.
Most of these side-by-sides were made in the Suhl region of Prussia, the most famous ones by the Lindner family of gunmakers. Charles Schilling also made shotguns under the Charles Daly name and I think this little 20 gauge is one. It’s up for auction now, so you could get a deal on it. But hurry, the auction ends in less than 24 hours.
Even though the Schilling-made Dalys differ a bit from the Lindners, they’re still very well made shotguns. If you’re looking for a lightweight 20g for upland hunting, this would be a good way to go.
