Yeah, in short a cottage industry. Daly placed the order w/ Lindner, who had a small contingent of mechanics in one floor of his 3 story home. Components either went or were sourced from the Best of the Best Suhl area mechanics that also hung out their gunmaking shingle @ the same time as Lindner. Higher echelon Lindner-Daly offerings were more than likely made in a special room within the Sauer plant. Then I am under the impression that all pass thru the Lindner shop where upon inspection, Lindner applied his Quality Seal of Approval, Crossed Sidearms surmounted by a Crown. Then the example set sail for the U.S. of A. to Daly, who had the pulse of the American Sportsman.
