Here’s some eye candy for you: it’s a 20 gauge  Lindner made, Charles Daly Regent Diamond Quality Shotgun.

Charles Daly was a businessman, not a gunmaker. Born in 1839, he partnered with August Shoverling around 1875 to import shotguns into the United States. These side-by-sides were marketed under Charles Daly’s name, and up to about WW2, they were some of the finest double-barrel shotguns for sale in the US.

Regent Diamond Quality shotguns were highest grade side-by-sides that Lindner made for Charles Daly (go to this post to compare it to a regular Diamond).

Just check out how beautifully sculpted the action, fences and toplever on this one are. Even though the gold is a bit over the top, it’s well tastefully executed so that it helps make this a real elegant little gun.
