Purchased a Charles Daly 28 ga O/U several years ago. Came with a broken V spring. Had it repaired by a gunsmith who made a conversion to Browning coil springs. It is a very nice grouse gun with 26" barrels choked skeet/skeet. Everything is marked as B C MIROKU except has CHARLES DALY stamped on barrel which doesn't match the rest. Blue Book lists a "Baby 28" version in Charles Daly info identified by 3/4" center to center distance of barrels. The serial number is a couple thousand beyond the range suggested for this version but it does have the 3/4" barrel separation. Does anyone have information that may help to identify it as an authentic "Baby 28" version? Much appreciated.

Thanks painter* for providing this information. Very informative and allows me to believe my 28 gauge is in fact the small frame version regardless of it's serialization. Again, Very much appreciated.

My pleasure. {hs#

I have a 20 gauge field choked mod/full that I use for pheasants. It's a nice little gun. I just hope I don't break anything as parts are hard to find.
