    Hi guys ..... I have recently found your board and it's very interesting. I have a gun that I've owned for 25 years and am interested in what it's worth. It's a Charles Daly 12 OU made by Miroku BC, Model 700. The serial number is 202822 and matches on all the pieces (forearm, stock, barrels, etc.). It has a nicely checkered pistol grip and forearm, the "receiver" is nicely engraved and the gun is in very good condition.

    Very interested to hear your thoughts! Thanks in advance.

    Miroku is a VERY old company in Japan that makes good quality firearms. I have never heard anything bad about them at all. That Charles Daly should be a good one
    Ignorance is a crime in 49 states. In the other one it is bliss.

    I can find no reference to a model 700. Every Daly O/U in my book has a name rather than a model number

    This is what "Blue Book" (22nd ed.) says (guntrader info. is also the same):
    Charles Daly, Japanese Mfg.
    In the early 60's C. Daly guns were manufactured by the firm of B.C. Miroku in Koichi, Japan. This japanese gun manufacturing company has produced guns for many companies, Browning being the current customer. Miroku guns are high quality with excellent fit and finish. Many of them are highly engraved and are fine examples of the gunmaker's art. C. Daly Miroku Guns are becoming quite collectible in some areas (small bores with open chokes). Their production ceased in 1976.
    Of all the gauges 12ga. is the lowest value, 28 ga. is the highest value. Depending on the grade(and condition) of your gun (pic would help). $650-$900.00 thats averaging between Blue Book and Guntrader. Post a Pic when you can.

    Packet is correct. They only list them by the model name. I am guessing yours as a superior grade.

    Whew, just found out how to reply on the new set-up!
    I have a "NEW HEART" --- works well but it still feels the same ---- SO - My thoughts concerning the Miroku vs a Ithica 700 is a fairly good match to this type shotgun....
    I'm fond of both types.....

    I would be very interested to know more about the Miroku
    if possible.

    GLAD to be back and I hope to become a fully active participant of most recourses of generosity of brilliant guys on The Firearms Forum from now on!

    CharlieD! Welcome back. FirstInLine's dad just got back from full pacemaker insertion. He woke up in the intensive care bed, looked over at my MIL and said, "I'm bored." :D

    I've recently aquired a Daly/Miroku and I've been advised to keep an extra set of springs on hand just in case. The gun in question is a 20ga field grade and I entend to only use it for hunting. I found "Spring Sets" available for Brownell's for 12ga but Ican't seen to find Sets for 20ga. Would anyone have any ideas where I could begin look?
    Thanks in Advance

    I found my springs @ (www.wisnersinc.com/please_read.htm)
    This guy has lots of good imfo. on Daly/Miroku's and he manufactures replacement parts very reasonably.
