    Anyone know anything about the Charles Daly .45 automatic? I believe it's the compact. Good? Bad? Worth$$?
    Thanks In Advance!

    Not enough info. That's like asking if a Ford compact is any good.
    What model, year, condition, etc.
    Pics too if you got any.

    I believe it's the DDA 10-45FS
    It's in good condition not a whole lot of rounds through it.
    Not sure of age!

    I have a CD officers 45. Its pretty good. Has some finishing blemishes that I pickled up on after I bought it but it has been reliable. No issues really. The only thing I am no a fan of is the full length guide rod/bushingless barrel setup. Its a pain to field strip. Outside of that its a great gun.

    In General I would say so. I have handled, but not shot, a couple of the shotguns they make and seemed good. In actuality, I think they contract other manufacturers to make guns to their specs for them. I believe my 45 is made by Armscor in the Philippines.

    And yes, an audi owner. Love me some Audi!

    I believe they are made by armscor,also
    So used should be in the $450? range in perfect condition. I'm guessing $550ish new?

    OK so CD basically puts their roll stamp (rebrands) other's guns.One guy said the gut were identical to the EEA witness,wished the parts were interchangeable.
    It looks like it to me also,so it's a good design

    I would call that a score. I am a sucker for mid range guns in the $300 and under price range. Hope it does well for you.

    I thought Charles Daley was a maker of fine English shotguns?

    You think correctly.
    Apologies to the board for my earlier misprint.
