I recently purchased the 10 ga. Charles Daly hammer gun that had been listed on GI. I usually carry hammerless guns so this was a big change for me. To be honest, I know nothing about this gun other than I had a lot of fun knocking down a few pheasants with it last weekend. A couple of years ago I posted pictures of an Ivers Johnson / Simson on this forum and a few knowledgeable members determined that it had been produced in 1922, but that gun had a lot of markings. The only markings that I have found on this hammer gun are the crossed pistols with a crown over them, and the serial number, 1567. Is this a HAL gun, and do you have an idea when it was manufactured? Jeff
