Hi,

I was looking thru the BBGV and can not find a Charles Daly semi-auto made in Japan. There is a section for O/Us made in Japan but the book combines all autos in a section that indicates these were made in Turkey. It has a wooden shiny stock. On the barrel is says "Charles Daly - Field - Made in Japan - 12 ga 2 3/4" and then underneath that is says "KGBP." The shotgun is at 98% with screw in chokes.

I can't see that these really nice shotguns would be priced at the same level as the Turkish imports.

Any ideas on what is might be worth? I just can't see "giving it away" for $300.

Thanks

IIRC there were two or three Browning A5 clone makers in Japan in the 1970's besides Miroku, who marked guns for Charles Daly - Yamamoto Firearms & others.

There were also rounded profile autoloaders - the CD & The Fox FA - which were both made by KTG (Weatherby Centurion).

A $300 selling prince is optimistic for a Japanese CD auto, eyewash/eyecandy not-withstanding - there are any number F/S online, unsold, with asking prices between $260-$300.

One reason is that parts are not interchangeable with any other clone guns (or gennies), and replacement parts are unobtainium.

Thanks for the reply even if it was not what I was looking for. Oh well, might as well sell it, I can't anything with it and the stock is too low for me.
