Was in a coin shop that also recently started selling guns.
Way down in the bottom of one case was a Charles Daly 1911 with what I believe were ivory grips... they were starting to yellow a bit. They wanted $450.
Since I was with the wife, and haven't planned to buy a 1911 for a while, I didn't really look at it... didn't even have them get it out of the case... and naturally didn't get a date off of it.
As I was walking away, it started to itch at the back of my mind. I wondered if they, being new to gun sales, knew what they have... if indeed they have anything at all.
I'm going back to look at it tomorrow. Besides a date, what should I look for?
I went to the Charles Daly website and read up on the history of the company a bit, but found nothing much about previous products.
