Although the name says Charles Daly, this is really a Zastava M70 rifle at the heart. The Zastava brand has been gaining in strength in North America to the point where they no longer need to white label their products with brands like Remington, Century International Arms, or Charles Daly, because the Zastava brand stands on its own. This particular Charles Daly comes from a time when Zastava didn’t quite have as strong a brand name in N. America and was really reasonably priced due to the obscurity of Charles Daly rifles. Behind the name is a solid Mauser action made by a company with roots back to 1853 that has been making Mausers since 1924.
hey all just looking for opinions, good or bad of the zastava brand! ive seen afew on gunshop websites cropping up in australia, a mauser action priced below a remmington and tikka? that had me interested.
Hi Folks, there's not that much info on these things yet, and I have the fortune of picking this up from Academy last week.
background: these things have been imported as remington 798, Charles Daly and Interams mark X. So it's not entirely new, but the latest incarnation was imported by CIA. So Zastava pretty much made and assemble everything over there and Century merely imported it.
