My youngest son bought me a new Charles Daly FS for Christmas. He and I had been looking around gun shows for a "project gun" and had pretty much narrowed the choices to either a CD or an IAI. Well, long story short, he bought it and, thus far, I have found it to be accurate. I made the mistake of replacing the short recoil spring guide rod with a Springfield Armory two piece full length rod BEFORE I EVER SHOT IT. We experienced several FTF/FTE stoppages during our first range session. I thought that perhaps the extractor was faulty until I realized that the slide was dragging on the guide rod - to the point where the slide would not completely go into battery when eased back. I've since put the original 1/2 rod back. I'm going to try it this coming Sunday.
