Here's the Feb. Charles Daly industry news letter:
Charles Daly (R) Monthly eNewsletter
Dear Charles Daly patrons:
Our monthly newsletter has not been published for several months
due to the fact that the Charles Daly product line has been going
through major changes for 2006. We apologize for keeping you in
the dark, but the work had to be completed before we could let
everybody know what we've been up to.
All of the changes that we have made will be incorporated into
our website over the next few weeks. Please visit us often over
the next few months to see details on all our new products.
One of the first changes you will notice is that we are no longer
importing any products from Zastava of Serbia. All of our Mauser
and Mini-Mauser bolt action rifles, barreled actions and actions
as well as our Superior II rimfire rifles and the ZDA pistols
are now discontinued. Zastava has decided to join with Remington
Arms for now, so in the very near future you should be able to
purchase Mauser (Remington Model 798), Mini-Mauser (Remington
Model 799) and Zastava rimfire rifles (Remington Model Five) for
approximately 10% more than you were paying for the Charles Daly
brand. We don't think Remington will be selling actions or
barreled actions but that remains to be seen. We do know that
Remington will not be selling the ZDA pistol.
There are still some inventories of Charles Daly Mausers,
Mini-Mausers, actions and barreled actions in the channel of
distribution. We suggest you buy them now before you have to
pay 10% more for the exact same product, if you can get it at
Another major change has occurred to our over and under and side
by side shotgun lines. Our Field, Superior and Empire over &
unders and side by sides from Italy and Spain are discontinued.
For 2006, all of our over & unders and side by sides will be
manufactured in Turkey.
We have been waiting patiently for several years while the
Turks over & under and side by side quality has risen year
after year. A few of the Turkish manufacturers are now at a
quality level equal to, or in some cases better than their
counterparts in Italy and Spain while their prices are half
what you'll pay for an equivalent Italian or Spanish shotgun.
We have three new grades of over & unders, the Model 105,
Model 106 and Model 206. We have one new side by side, the
The Model 105 is a great looking over & under with some basic
features at a remarkable price. Available in 12 gauge only
right now, this model has a silver engraved receiver, Turkish
walnut stocks, double triggers, extractors and fixed chokes
at an incredible MSRP of $399.00.
The Model 106 is an excellent over & under with many more
features and inlaid receiver with a MSRP of $549.00. Available
in 12, 20, 28 and .410 gauges, this model includes a blued
receiver with four gold bird inlays, Turkish walnut stocks,
single selective trigger, extractors and multi-chokes.
The Model 206 will be our top of the line over & under for 2006.
It is absolutely beautiful with an introductory price that is
incomparable. Featuring an elegant silver receiver with select
Turkish walnut stocks, the Model 206 will incorporate a single
selective trigger with selective automatic ejectors and
Multi-Choke tubes. In 2006 it will be available in 12 gauge
only in both hunting and competition models. At a starting MSRP
of $599.00 it has to be seen to be believed. We'll put it up
against any of our competitors that cost $1,000.00 more. Some
who have seen it already have commented that the wood alone
would be worth the cost of this shotgun.
The Model 306 side by side shotgun is another great value.
Featuring an elegantly engraved blued receiver with Turkish
walnut pistol grip buttstock and beavertail forearm, this fine
double has a single selective trigger, extractors and Multi-Choke
tubes. Initially it will be available only in 12 gauge, with 20
gauge coming in the 3rd quarter of this year. The MSRP is only
Another new project is the addition of our Z-Series (Zamak)
and S-Series (Steel) double action revolvers in .22LR, .38Spl.
and .357 Magnum. Made in the Czech Republic, these revolvers
represent a great value in this type of handgun.
Our Enhanced steel 1911 pistols have undergone some improvement
s well. Updated features include a new trigger shoe and hex key
grip screws. In the next few months we will have the EFS and
EFST models in .40S&W and .38Super. Also, our new Hi-Cap model
will finally be delivered in the EFS size in .45ACP and .40S&W.
A Hi-Cap Target version in .45ACP will be ready soon!
We are expanding our "Cowboy" guns again this year. Look for
the new Birdshead and Lightning model 1873 revolvers. Later
this year a Bisley model will also be ready. More lever action
and single shot rifles have also been added to our line.
We still don't have a fully rifled barrel for our pumps and
semi-auto shotguns but for 2006 we have added our new ERCT
models which come with Extended Rifled Choke Tubes and either
adjustable rifle sights or cantilever mounts.
As you can see, we have been very busy at Charles Daly as we
continue to fulfill our mission of being "The Shooting Sports Specialist".

few weeks as we update our website.
