Ebonite isn’t technically “plastic”. And regardless what you think, it would be right at home on a Daly. 99% of the people out there would have to look really hard at a freshly finished ebonite plate to know that it’s not horn. Freshly finished ebonite and horn look very similar, just without the tell tale grain structure of the horn. You know what else doesn’t belong on a on a Daly....Turkish walnut. Regardless, we see them being restocked in the stuff all the time. Ive seen ebonite on Dicksons, Purdeys & Holland’s.
It’s actually found on a many vintage fine guns, especially American ones and on quite a few British & Continental guns.

Chillax Ted. Just a different opinion, no need to get all cranky, especially towards me.

HA! I’m not cranky. Yet. My wife will vouch for that.

I deliberately put ebonite on a Tobin I had restocked. Because it belonged there, and looked right. It was not checkered, just grooved. But, I’d wager the cost of a few rounds of trap that the Daly had horn on it when it was new. With engraved screws holding it on.

Agree with the Turkish wood thing. Or Claro or American black walnut, on a gun that it doesn’t belong on.

A high polish reblue on production grade guns bugs me, too.

There was a gent from Alaska who was selling top quality water buffalo horn a few years back, right here on the forum. I bought a beautiful piece to make a buttplate from. The last buttplate I had done was checkered ebony, because, that was what belonged there.

But, I don’t really have a gun a proper horn plate belongs on, not yet, anyway. To me, that would be a top quality, but, mid to higher grade continental double.

The exact gun the OP is inquiring about.

Best,
Ted
