Hi all,

As I continue to research the various manufacturers of firearms these days, I keep seeing the name Charles Daly and it's almost always synonymous with quality and customer satisfaction. I know that the company is in the AR business, as are many other names. I came across this D-M4LE carbine review and was curious if anyone here owns one, has held/fired one, or knows someone who owns one and what their take is on it.


Is this a good value for the money? From the more experienced shooters out there, how does this carbine compare with the likes of CMMG, Stag, Daniel Defense, Colt, S & W, etc. in similar purpose?

I h ave two charles daly lowers and they fit perfectly with my stag upper. the finish also matches enough that I dont see any visible difference. my lpks run smoothly so far Im very pleased.

I have a charles daly lower as well, and it's fit and finish is every bit as good as my S&W

I guess CD is quite new with the full, complete rifles so not too many people have one yet.

I went to River City Gun Exchange in Sactown earlier today and all they've had there, according to one of the salesmen, have been lowers. I also checked at the Stag 15, but they were asking $1280 or thereabouts. One guy there, Benny, I think was his name said that the Stag 15 complete rifle was a wiser choice over the CD M4 because it had name recognition and a reputation for solid build. Of course, it was nearly $100 more than the Charles Daly D-M4LE that they had to order. I think they had to order the CD M4 first, then they would sell for about $1189. Naturally, they want to get rid of what they already have before they have to order something new. :confused:

when I was trying to buy a cd upper they said they were too far behind on manufacturing rifles and uppers would not be available any time soon. that was in april. I doubt they have caught up considering the demand that happened over the last 8 months due to their newness in this type of weapons manufacture. well see all the reviews Ive read have been good and like I said my lower is as good as any other Ive handled.

The CD rifles got very good reviews when they came out, but they just could not keep up with demand. I don't think they are caught up yet.
Take a long look at the rifles from Daniel Defense, they seem like a good quality rifle at a fair price.
Both the CD and DD rifles are ahead of Stag in my book.

I just checked, and it looks like Bud's has the CD in stock.

I heard the gun was really good, and they were using top of the line parts.

The owner replies on their forums. Why not ask him about production/availability?
