    ahhh tax time, that beautiful season is here agian. I will be buying a new gun on monday, and went preshopping today. got to thinking I need a 1911 to play with. This will be my first 1911 to work on myself and I don't wanna drop 800+ for a kimber only to screw it up self smithing. Is the Daly gonna be worth dropping 425? Or are they complete piles O crap?
    As I rescue those in danger, Lord, may I have no fear.

    I've read and heard different things on the Daly's.When I hear
    as many pros and cons,I go to one sorce that has helped me
    in deciding on a gun.This is called "Gun Tests".This is a group
    of folks who take any number of weapons and do a review on
    the performance of the weapon.I remember reading that they
    tested a Charles Daly 45.I don't recall what model but I will
    look in my back issues and look it up.I can only say they had
    problems with this gun.If you want.you can look up their web
    site. www.gun-tests.com.They may allow you to view their
    take on the gun.I understand how the bug has bitten.Some
    times you'll see a deal on a Colt.Have you considered a used
    1911 ? I believe that "Antique Dealer" might be able to help.

    Alpha, the Charles Daly is a good base 1911 to start with. I have a few friends who shoot them. The early pistols had feed problems. Mostly mag related. The quality of the newer CD 1911's is better. I just sold one for $390 and should have another Friday. You may want to consider this one.
