Double Fire?

Postby ACEBLDRS » Mon Jul 11, 2005 10:12 pm

I have a Charles Daly Auto loader. It is your cheeper auto. I think it ran about $500 out the door. Last year about this time it started to double fire on me out on the skeet range. I would load two shell, pull the trigger on the first target and then BOOM the second shell goes off just as soon as the bolt closes on it. This happened about 5 more time to me, but not in a row. I took several more rounds to happen. I think i put about 5k rounds through it.

So i send it back to them, back east somewhere. They tell me that they are very concerned with the double fire and that a couple of other people have sent their guns in also. So, they send me a brand new gun. By this time i am using a beretta o/u for skeet, so my Daly is strictly a field gun.

A couple weeks ago a freind wanted to get into shooting, so he joined my skeet team. He is using my Daly until he can get a gun of his own. Well, tonight it double fired. Let me tell you how much it makes your and everyone at the fields butt pucker when a gun double fires. It is a very abnormal sound, so everyone jerks their head it that direction.

So I just wanted to share the story, see if anyone else has had this problem with a Charles Daly or any other weapon. I think i will ask for my money back if that is possible. I don't think i want a 3rd gun that is most sertainly going to do the same thing.

Any thoughts to whether you think i can get my $$$$ money back?

Maybe, but your chances become teenier if you buy a quality gun. I bought my Benelli SBE the first year out, all along keeping my Rem, 1100 in the truck as a backup. I haven't shot that 1100 in over a decade. I don't baby that gun either. A few stovepipes over the years, and only while upland hunting w/ cheap 2 3/4 rounds.( I blame the rounds) Never w/ a 3 or 3 1/2. Only 3 guns I would buy, Barreta and Benneli (One is made upstairs and the other is made downstairs of the same factory) and a H and K. Benelli twin. Maybe one day my Benelli will fail so I can justify buying another

I agree with bullet, my cheeper gun, has less quality metals and moving parts. A beretta has much higher quality steel, and just loading a shell in it you can tell that the moving parts are better.

Frazier, i have the Field hunter, in hardwoods. They have excellent customer service. But lets face it customer service doesn't kill ducks. I want my customer service to be like the "maytag man". you never have to use him, but you know he is there. Another thing i don't like about this gun is that when loading shells, they tell you to put two shells in the bottom, pull the bolt back and this loads one of the shells you put in the bottom. then put a third shell in the bottom. If you put one shell in the top and close the bolt, then put two shells in the bottom. The gun will not shoot the 2nd shell. It is just an inconvenients.

One thing highly overlooked in buying a shotgun is FIT. Most guns don't fit there owners unless your a perfect 5' 10" 165 lbs with normal length arms. I'm 6' 3" 200 lbs with longer arms. The Benelli comes w/ a stock drop shim kit and a adjustments for Cast and Comb. This helps the layman a better fit with a gun off the rack. this is the one thing that will help me shoot more birds. The rest of the crap won't. The Benelli's have a recoil system that will also help for your second shot. I never feel recoil when shooting birds but this will help you get on target for #2 or 3

Bullet, the beretta comes with cast off and cast on kits as well. I had a piece of 3/4 plywood as a shim on the butt of my gun when i used it for skeet, I also put a cheekez on the comb. it raised my eye up about 1/4 inch. In the field with a big coat on I found that the extra piece on the butt would only help get the gun caught on my coat at the shoulder.

Fit is very important.


Called Charles Daly this morning. Told them about the second gun. They said "wow very unusuall to hapen twice." I said "it aint unusuall to happen twice, its and epidemic." They want to send me a third gun. I was planning on getting the new beretta xtrema2 this year and use the Daly as a backup. But who the heck needs a back up gun that can't back anything up.. I would need a backup for my backup.
