Charles Daly Prussia 12g Diamond Quality

Serial Number 1918



Charles Daly (Prussia) 12g Diamond Quality Gun shotgun made by H.A. Lindner. Daly action based on an A&D boxlock with a hidden Scott type cross bolt, intercepting sears, and rod cocking indicators on either side of the top lever. The action has a scalloped back, clipped fences, and raised, beaded panels filed on the sides of the action. Two triggers and automatic safety. 

Prussian made Daly shotguns were known for the wonderful engraving and this gun is a good example of why. 90% coverage of well-cut traditional small scroll engraving on the action sides and fences and on the bottom of the action surrounding a game scene of Setter honoring the pointer in front of it. On the trigger bow are two flushing birds, what might be grouse or partridge. There are deeply engraved wedges of engraving on the sides of the barrels at the breeches. "Charles Daly" is engraved inside horizontal banners on the action sides and "Charles Daly Diamond Quality" engraved down the top rib of the barrels. Whitten Excelsior Steel proofs on the tops or each barrel at the breeches. 

The 30" Whitten Excelsior steel barrels are proofed as 13/1 (.719" nominal bore diameter) and correctly measure .721" in each barrel and have excellent wall thickness with .028" minimum on both barrels. Barrels are choked: .

The highly figured European walnut stock has a rounded semi-pistol grip with the Daly signature thumb flutes at the tip of the comb, raised point on the horn grip inlay, and subtle lip on the splinter forend's horn tip. Checkered hand checkered panels at the stock's head with traditional drop points. forend has wrap checkering with a concave, smooth border around the Deeley forend latch. Deeley/Edge box ejectors are also fitted inside the forend. 

This gun remains in remarkably good condition and, as far as I can tell, retains nearly 85% or 90% of its original case colors and barrel black. The stock has a modern London Guns red rubber pad and no doubt had a light refinish when the pad was installed. The barrels remain perfect and gun is sound mechanically, tight on face and the stock and forend free of any cracks or repairs. The "HAL" and crossed pistols proof marks of HA Lindner are sharp on the bottom of each tube. Overall an very high quality gun in superb, overall condition.
