I recently purchased a 12 ga. CD field hunter and I have put about 350 rounds threw it and it performed like a champ, no flaws. I'm not sure whats up with all the lame reviews, but this is a great gun and will fire and as fast as you can pull the trigger, I know because my brother owns a benelli and he was also in awh of the quality of this gun. I think most guys want to purchased a name than a quality gun just to say ( look at what I got ), and not real hunters.

My all weather field tactical model, literally blew apart in my hands yesterday evening, the barrel came a few inches away from my head and hit my truck about 5 yards back...FYI I was shooting low-velocity #8 bird shot when this happened.

Jeffrey S. from Florence, NJ on Thu, 14 May 2015

I have the all weather field tactical model. Light and compact compared to my mossberg maverick 88. Mine will hold five 2 3/4 shells in the tube and one in the chamber. Shoots low recoil 00 buck well. Seems to be a well made gun. Accessories are not readily available.

I went out a few yearsback and bought 2 Charles Daly 3 1/2 field mags.. WOW what a waste of money.. I put 200 rounds thru my black on and the O rings blew out and couldnt find replacemants.. So took out My Camo one the first day of Duck season and the Ejector pin broke after 4 rounds thru it.. never been fired before !! Now CD is out of business cant get replacement parts and are now PAPER WEIGHTS !!

Randy C. from Charleston, WV on Thu, 11 Dec 2014

I got one of these when I bought a boat and guy needed extra money so he threw it in for 150 bucks. I called it a bonus and decided to put it through it's paces. I have shot sabot slugs/00buck/lead slugs....(no choke ) I then turned around and was busting clays........THIS SHOTGUN IS A GOOD VALUE.....When I got it I had never heard of a Charles Daily shotgun....It felt light and cheap in my hands but...I am SOLD! Great shotgun for an entry level hunter..deer/turkey and can you ask for anything more for the price?

Guy's I have a 20ga Field hunter and it hasn't had 5 Boxes of ammo shot through it and the Bolt Locking Lug has broken, does anyone know where I can find one? This Gun has been taken care of and hasn't been abused! Not reliable like my Remingtos, Winchesters or Mossberg

I purchased 20 ga auto 4 yrs. ago and have since fired 1000+ rds. with no problems. Have only cleaned a few times when action starts to stick after hundreds of rounds and dirt/sand causes problems and then it works like new again. I lay this gun in the dirt / sand and drag it thru the brush, I don't baby it. I own many other shotguns and have shot many others. I love this shotgun and enjoy shooting it over many that cost 5 times as much. I am getting ready to buy the same gun in 12 ga. and maybe a back up 20 ga. so after I wear my first one out I don't have to worry about finding another. If your having problems with this shotgun, try cleaning it and spraying oil every where you can. Then work the action 50 times to make sure everything is lubed. Now go have fun. If your having problems ejecting shells, check the O ring to make sure your not loosing pressure. Oh, let me guess. You didn't know there was an O ring. I've shot this gun too many times for it to have manufacturer issues, if they had problems something would have developed by now. good luck and for the price you have nothing to loose.

okay so bought the cd field 12 ga today and we bught 5 slugs with it .... does it make a difference if you have slugs in the holding chamber cuz there is only able to fit 3 slugs inthere... and it says that it can fit four... so is there a difference?

Scott L. from Amarillo, TX on Fri, 22 Aug 2014

I just bought a new CD semi-auto field hunter in 12 ga. I took it out to the trap range yesterday and put 100 rounds through... flawless. I paid $279 out the door for this shotgun and am very pleased with it's performance and the ease in cleaning it. Of course, it's only 100 rounds, the true test comes over time. At this point, however, I have no complaints whatsoever.

Tyrone B. from Miami, FL on Sun, 21 Oct 2012

I own the Charles Daly Field "Tactical" 12 ga. Just got back from the range. Now, over 50 rounds fired. No jams, this gun works great! I paid just over $200 out the door! You cannot beat the price. Remember, this gun is made in Turkey, and the Turkish are getting better at making guns, and better known for their guns. There is only one warning with this gun. It kicks like a stubborn old mule. I'm going to get a Knoxx Stock and hopefully that will take care of the kick. As a side note, for the Charles Daly Field guns I read the "Knoxx Stock" for the Mossberg 500, will fit this gun. I have not confirmed yet but there is the lead. - Great Buy, reliable, highly recommended.

Darrel K. from Tabor City, NC on Thu, 6 Oct 2011

Brent, you must have gotten a bad apple. I LOVE my CD. Of course I did get made fun of in the duck blind, but my autoloader was the only one that did'nt jam. And I hunt with guys who shoot specifically benellis and franchis. It's clean and go, and trust me, it's fell flat in the mud of the LA swamp and still shot pretty well.

Fred W. from Hardesty, OK on Thu, 28 Jul 2011

Its not too bad of a gun, it is 100% intercangeable with Rem. 11-87 parts. My only knock on it is the fact that the recoil spring looks like it is smaller in wire diameter than a standard paperclip.

Bryant J. from Summit, NJ on Mon, 20 Jun 2011

This is the worst gun ive ever had the misfortune to own! Ive had it for 4 yrs and EVERY year, thats 4 times now ive had to send it in for repairs in the middle of hunting season. Sure they pay for the shipping and fix it for free but when you lose the last part of of your hunting season 4 seasons in a row thas not a good thing. Mine now sits the safe taking up space because thats all the piece of juck is worth.

Charles Daly Field Hunter SS Questions & Comments



RMARTINS70 from Coral Gables, FL on Tue, 13 Jun 2017

I buy My charles Daly in 1993 and fire 3000 rounds aprox pefect state 20 pts

Guy's I contacted Gun Broker and explained that they wanted Half the cost of my Charles Daly for a Locking Block, they replied and said they would sell the Locking Block to me for $95.00 + Shipping, that's still a third of the Gun cost. Has anyone found them cheaper? $50.00 bucks is a high price but I wouldn't have a problem with that. The L/Blocks that Gun Broker have are Machined Steel not the cheap crap that the Gun was made with and I may have to purchase one.

Kristopher G. from Lexington, MO on Sat, 26 Mar 2016

I took my grandson to the skeet range and let him shoot my beretta 391 gold sporting, he so loved the day that I thought I would buy him a beginer gun to see how long he would stick to shooting skeet. I went to a local pawn shop and they had a charles daly black 12 auto and I thought it would be perfect. put down what I had in my pocket and then went home to find out more about this gun. Needless to say after the track record that I seen from all you guys, I couldn't get back to the pawn fast enough to get the money applied to a beretta A303 that they had. Shame on me thinking I could skimp at my grandsons expense. Never again.....

Johnathan I. from Sellersville, PA on Thu, 24 Mar 2016

Good news guy's. Locking Blocks are avaliable at Gun Broker, they are $125.00 pls $28.00 to ship the gun back to you. What a RIP-OFF Gun Broker sure want's to Gouge you when youre down. I'll never spend that kind of money on this piece of Junk and will never Buy anything from Gun Broker. Who are they trying to kid saying they have to install this simple part.

Johnathan I. from Sellersville, PA on Fri, 19 Feb 2016

To doveman! If you think these reviews are Lame look at my last Post April 2010,16 months later I am still looking for a locking block for my 20 ga or should I say my $300.00 Paper Weight

Nelson S. from New York, NY on Fri, 16 Oct 2015

I just won a CD 12 ga. slug gun at a DU banquet. I have lost some of my enthusiasm after reading some of the reviews. If nothing else I at least got a good scope out of the deal. I will let you know my opinion when I test it. Can anyone else confirm that Rem. 11-87 parts will fit? That could be a great solution.

Sean C. from Radford, VA on Fri, 8 May 2015

some of these guns were made by diff. manufactuer. go to charles daily website and info. can be found if you look hard enough. I posted it so I know it is there. find out who made yours and buy parts accordingly. New England Firearms were made by the same place as my CD.

Jack K. from El Paso, TX on Fri, 8 May 2015

I have 2 CD and they have been pretty good up until here recently. I have about 400 rounds through it and today I was hunting ducks and all I could do was watch my buddies shoot. My 12 ga. would misfire and just barely hit the primer. It started this 2 years ago and now won't shoot at all. And I just tore it down and cleaned it. I wouldn't buy another just because they are out of business and can't get parts. So good luck to all that have one. Sounds like we are screwed.

Eugene B. from Milton, WV on Sun, 12 Apr 2015

Guess that means it's a no buy. I found a better deal anyway on a maverick 88 for $180.

Eugene B. from Milton, WV on Mon, 2 Feb 2015

What's the max # of rounds any of you have fired out of this gun before you started having any serious malfunctions?

Rafael P. from Hilliard, FL on Fri, 7 Oct 2011

For what good it may do, I bought a 20ga for my 8yr old and it wouldn't even function w low brass. With the high brass (Remington express #6 or larger shot) it would function but sometimes hang. I finally gave up and lent it to our hired hand to shoot and shoot and shoot........ End of day, it must have been a break in issue since after 500+ rounds it will now function w low brass. I guess whoever is producing the autoloader for Daly now may not have the details on their mind. Details may include,,,, THIS P.O.S WON"T WORK.....

Darrel K. from Tabor City, NC on Thu, 6 Oct 2011

Mine eject fine, Brad:-D Now for the bad Charles Daly seems to have a "parts issue". If you go to the website, 80% of the parts and accessories are on backorder. If you call, you get a "mom and pop" type operation, who could care less if you get the correct part or not. Wonder what this is about. I still stand by my original post though!!!

Bryan C. from Cleveland, TX on Thu, 6 Oct 2011

does any one know why the shells wont eject automatically?

Fred W. from Hardesty, OK on Thu, 28 Jul 2011

brnetJ, with all of the wackos that live in CA. They still let you hunt?? Not a dig at anyone except for the looneys that live in your state.
