It's a CHARLES DALY EMPIRE TRAP GRADE 12GA 30" BARREL is it worth using?
A waste of your $$$ Have the forcing cone reamed out "i.e. lengthened" and forget the rest of that crap. It wont improve anything. If you have enough $$ get the stock cut so you can raise the comb to suit YOU...not "Joe Average".

Daly's are much older guns. Might be worth shooting but I wouldnt put any $$ into it.

Re: Trap shooting

I have one of the Stoeger competition O/U's. Mine at least, is a manual safety. I've got about 3k rounds through this one & it's functioning well. My experience has been a roller coaster with the Stoeger. The gun itself is ok, nothing to brag about but they work. My uncle has a field grade Stoeger, both his & mine lost the little metal strip that fills the gap between the barrels (I have no idea what it's called). It looks as though they are silver soldered into place. I've put 1k rounds through mine came apart, but it still functions well.

Re: Trap shooting

If you truly mean to shoot trap as a game (as opposed to skeet or sporting clays or shooting trap as hunting prep) I recommend you get a dedicated gun. Based on your price range the Browning BT-99 (or the older BT-100) are just about within your reach... Take a look on Trapshooters.com and post a WTB thread.

Good luck!
