Where, where, where may I find a replacement barrel Bushing, spring & retainer/plunger for my .45 Charles Daly ?

see pic below, it broke while shooting but I was not injured. All pieces are scattered to the 7 winds.
Very accurate pistol but very unclear on interchangeability of parts.

Many Thanks, any help would be appreciated ! Mark

I have little doubt that most any surplus , or new parts will go right in. try Numrich , midway us or Bronwnells. you could even try the importer of your pistol ,I'm presuming it's an import, they may send you New parts.

That is the first time I saw that part break that way! I have seen them split, but that is usually because a squib load caused a barrel bulge and the bushing split when the slide recoiled to the bulge spot. Those parts should be standard, and should work fine.

If you look on the bottom side of the frame in the front it should tell you who made it for Charles Daly. I think you will see either Armscor or Twin Pines written there. That would mean yours is Philippine made and most any standard GI barrel bushing should fit it. Notice I said should. :D

Thanks m14man. Yes, an unpleasant surprise. I ordered an 18# spring and a 7-round mag from Wolff, other parts from Numrich.

Thanks !

Agrred, I hope the Numrich & Wolff parts fit as they should. I could not believe the accuracy I was getting when I first bought it but the day of the accident it shot wonky, then pieces everywhere.
Just glad I was still conscious.

Thank you !

You were never in danger with that part failing. A round fired without the recoil spring could result in a cracked frame because nothing would slow the slide down.

Good luck on the repair, they should drop right in. I had a CD 1911 several years ago and it too, was a fine shooter.

You'll live how that 18# spring feels. Hope you get her up and running soon.
