Although the lock-up was solid, the action was a little stiff and caused some minor malfunctions during our field tests. Perhaps a little more use would cause the Charles Daly to open and close a little easier.
There were no problems in moving the shotgun through targets with its larger forearm, which we felt was just a little bulky for a short-barrel.
While an automatic safety is good for field work, if the shooter is planning to spend much time on the clays course, we would recommend a little gunsmith work to eliminate the feature.
