    Charles Daly was a firearms manufacturer and importer, located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in the United States.

    Bolt action Mauser and Mini-Mauser rifles were produced by Zastava Arms in Serbia from 2002 until 2005. 1892 lever action rifles are produced in Italy by Armi Sport de Chiappa. In 2008 they entered the AR-15 market with a US produced line of AR-15 type rifles and carbines under the Charles Daly Defense brand.

    In 1996 the brand was acquired by K.B.I., Inc. of Harrisburg, PA, which expanded the import line to include semi-auto and pump-action shotguns and 1911-style pistols and re-christened the company as Charles Daly, The Shooting Sports Specialist.

    A letter from Michael Kassnar posted on the Charles Daly Website on January 29, 2010 indicated that Charles Daly and KBI were going out of business and closing their doors effective January 29, 2010.

    I would guess that your .22 caliber rifle was made by Armscorp in the Philippines and imported by KBI- Charles Daly sometime after 1996.

    Pictures are of vital importance.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    I can give you a little information on your gun.... at least enough to understand what is printed on your gun.

    Before 1976 CD firearms was owned by Sloan's Sporting Goods and were manufactured by B.C Miroku in Japan.

    Miroku produced many fine guns for a number of American Companies including Browning.

    In 1976 Sloans sold CD to Outdoor Sports Headquarters Inc (OSHI) in Dayton Ohio.

    In 1996 OSHI was sold to Jerry's Sports Center in Forrest City, Pennsylvania. Jerry's broke up OSHI's companies and sold off Charles Daly to KBI of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    KBI included Kassner Imports

    In 1997 KBI (Kassner Imports) re-introduced the line of Charle Daly O/U and SxS shotguns.

    Kassner Imports was based in the Phillipines and the guns were produced there and imported into the US by Kassner Imports.

    Kassner Imports later became Armscor which today imports a complete line of inexpensive weapons into the US from the Phillipines.

    The line of Charles Daly.22 rifles and pistols was introduced in 1998.

    Your rifle was produced in the Phillipines but the importing company (KBI) was located in Harrisburg.

    Your field grade .22 was produced from 1998 - 2002. There were 4 versions of the rifle offered. The basic field grade was offered in 3 barrel lengths, 16 1/4 inch (youth), 17 1/2 inch (youth), and 22 5/8 inch (standard). They were offered in single shot and also with a 6 shot magazine.

    The 2nd version was a field grade polymer/hardwood. It was the same as the field grade but had a stainless receiver and barrel with either a polymer or hardwood stock.

    The 3rd version was the superior grade. It offered checkered walnut finished stock and adjustable rear sight.

    The 4th version ws the Empire Grade which came with a checkered California Walnut stock with Rosewood grip and forend caps. It also featured high polish blue and damascened bolt.

    None of the Daly .22's are very valuable. They are in line with other Phillipine imports. The first 2 grades in 80% condition are worth about $60 with the superior grade worth about $100 in 80% condition.

    The Empire grade, in 80% condition is worth about $150.

    None of the guns used clips, they all use magazines. I would suggest you check with Numreich Arms for extra magazines.

    If that doesn't work scour the gun shows for them or watch the online gun auctions for parts (magazines).
