Had one some time back and was an excellent pistol. I would grab another without hesitation.

There are actually 2 Italian manufactures making 1911's - Brixia and Tanfoglio.
The Charles Daly is made by Brixa and is offered in three versions
the Empire, the Superior. and the Field G.I.

Tanfoglio is aimed at the higher enhanced 1911 platform.

Another fact is there have been over 100 manufactures of the 1911, from every corner of the world and that list continues to grow.
Quite a testament to Mr. Brownings design.

Some years back, I owned a pair of "Charles Daly" Stainless SAs.  The importer and and holder of the "Charles Daly" moniker at the time was "KBI" of Harrisburg PA.  The actual guns were Pietta.  For all practical purpose, Great Western IIs, rebranded and marked for Charles Daly.

AS nearly as I can tell, Firearms marketed by "Charles Daly" have been made by a whole pile of different actual manufacturers.  At least since the beginning the last Century.

Exacta Mundo... Charles Daly moniker has been on guns made in Turkey, old Yugoslavia, Brazil, Poland (Prussia).
In addition to Italy, and including Heym and Sauer of Germany, J&W Tolley of England, Newmann of Belgium and Lefever of New York. Later producers also included Beretta, Miroku of Japan and Garbi of Spain.
