    Hello, new guy here.
    Looking to identify and value my Daly 20 gauge.

    I suspect it's a Superior II Hunter Skeet but Blue Book description is vague.

    Don't have pictures but it's 26" fixed skeet/skeet. It's engraved, (not game scenes) and the S/N is 214-2XX. Vent rib is 3/16" wide and has center bead.
    The bluing is 98% and wood is 90-95%. Checkered plastic butt plate with Miroku emblem.

    Thanks pros!

    Pictures are needed to accurately place a value on it.

    Agreed, but as stated, I don't have pictures now.
    I can probably get some tomorrow, then figure out how to post them.
    Any feed back on the information I've posted would be appreciated.
    Appreciate the response.

    To post pictures click on "Go Advanced", then above the field where you type you'll see a happy face, to right of that is a paperclip. Click on the paperclip and it will allow you to post pictures. Most of the people that will reply will want to see pictures that's why I recommended you post some.

    I had a Miroku made Daly 20g, 26 inch VR barrel, choked SK/SK. Sold it for around 650 a couple of years ago. I believe it was the Venture grade. I had a Daly catalogue but that went with the SG. I wouldn't have graded mine in the same class you have yours.

    Nice gun.

    Aitch,

    Yours is newer, I think, than the one I had. The pistolgrip on mine was bag shaped like the old Browning A-5's. Aside from that, yours does look like it has a better remaining finish that mine did. And mine wasn't too bad.

    BC Miroku also made the Browning OU's. These are well made SG's and don't hurt the eye much either. I think it is worth more than what I received for mine.

    Thanks again steve99f.
    I'm thinking of taking it to the big Wannemacher gun show in Tulsa. Your feedback has confirmed where I was going to price it.

    I hope that the previous responders and others can offer some information on the model now that I've posted pictures.
