Auction Alert – Prussian Charles Daly SxS Double Rifle…

No, that’s not a typo. A made-in-Prussia Charles Daly side-by-side double rifle is coming up to auction this Sunday, 2/27. Redding Auction Service in Gettysburg, PA, has it, and the gun looks very crisp and all original.

I’ve never seen or heard of an original side-by-side, double rifle by Charles Daly. The auctioneer’s told me that it’s in 30-40 Krag, an old military cartridge that’s great for everything up to whitetails and black bears to elk. They also say it has Krupp fluid steel barrels. From what I can tell, it doesn’t look like a Lindner-made gun, either.

Value wise, I think this is $6,000 – $7,500 is a fair price for this gun. However, because of its rarity and condition, it could go for a lot more. If two Daly collectors decide they have to have it, the price could go well above $10,000.

BTW: there’s a few other nice gun in this auction. You can see the entire listing here.

  1. Hello,

    I stumbled across this sight when searching for Charles Daly Prussian. I have what appears to be the almost exact gun pictured here with a serial # of 753. It is not in as good shape as the one pictured but it appears to be all original with matching numbers. The action is frozen but the gun does break down, I can provide detailed pics. I would like to sell it and would like to get an appraisal. Can you help me or direct me in the right place

    Much appreciated


  2. A friend owns a Joseph Jakob double twelve gauge and I am searching for some information on the maker as well as potential value. Your site is the only place I have found any information on Joseph Jakob which was a rare ten gauge. Any direction would be appreciated.

    Thank you, Jeff Minor
