    Charles Daly Hi Power, any good?

    I handled one of these a couple of weeks ago at a gun shop. Everything seemed nice and tight and felt like a good gun overall. The only thing I didn't like about it was the trigger seemed rather heavy and a little gritty.

    They were asking $365 for it which was about half the price of the Browning sitting next to it in the same case. Anyone own one of these or have an oppinion on this pistol.

    I'll try to be as polite as possible with my answer which is:

    If possible please try to save up your $$$ for a while longer and go for the Browning.

    QK is right but - I have a FEG (Hungarian BHP clone) and got that as a stop-gap until I found my BHP Practical.

    It is for me very good value and was not bought for high ammo thruput - but I cannot compare that with a Daly as I have not handled one.

    Just making the point that a clone can be worth a look, if you are prepared to accept probably metallurgical inferiority potential - or shall we say, possible reduced longevity.

    The FEG has been dead on reliable and tho I would not use it for carry - it can happily sit in the house as a spare HD gun. I don't regret getting it.

    As ever tho - and as a generalization - you get's what ya pays for

    I had the exact same question so I went to my local Gun Gal (FFL) and asked her. You wouldn't believe the look I got. It was somewhere between "are you nuts" and "you should be put down".
    Really bad part was she had an FN that she had sold 2 hours before. It was beautiful. If that sale falls through it's MINE!!!
    So to answer your question. A FFL that sells CD's tells me to stay away I would.

    FWIW, I have a Daly 1911 that's given me nothing but problems. I'll never buy a CD again.
