Love them or hate them, there is no denying that the Raptor Grip from Shockwave Technologies has created a very hot market for short, non-NFA shotguns. Until now, that market has been mostly limited to the big players in shotguns – Mossberg and Remington. Now there is a new player wading in at a budget price.
Charles Daly is set to release the Honcho in .410, 20GA, and 12GA. All three have 14″ barrels with black polymer furniture. The 12GA and 20GA models have a section of rail on the handguard for attaching a light. All three models have a fixed blade front sight.
Like several other Charles Daly shotguns, these appear to be manufactured in Turkey. Their MSRP (around $300) is lower than the retail price on most other similar shotguns which may be enough to tempt those who have otherwise ignored the birdshead grip shotgun craze thus far.
