Charter Arms
Anyone have a Charter Arms revolver? I know they're not Smiths or Rugers, but are they worth looking at ? I was looking at one to keep in the truck because I didn't want to leave my S&W in there through the winter. Any feedback good or bad, please.

I have had one. It was a .22 LR. It shot a bit high, but always fired. Meh..... didn't hate it. I only sold it because it was so god awful loud.

The Charter Bulldog in ,44 spcl, has been my EDC for last couple years.
It shoots to POA. and never had a problem

Im happy with it.

I put a request at LGS for Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm version revolver, that request was put in March 2013 amd still on order!

They have been getting the other Charter Arms models; but, not the 9mm Pitbull.

I was thinking Bull Dog or Mag Pug. I've only owned S&W and Ruger Revolvers before, so I'm not that familiar with Charter.

I've worked on a few of them and they are the most bass-ackwards pieces around. I always charge higher to work on these firearms when they come into the shop. I have gotten more than one into the shop in a bag because some individuals fancy they are garage gunsmiths and can't get them back together. If you get the cylinder release latch off you will need about 4 hands to put it back together. If you don't tinker with your firearms I imagine they are acceptable and I have never been afraid to shoot one but I will never own one.

I have an old charter that was made in the early 70's. It is a 357 mag pug. A member of my family carried it as a back up to his service pistol. The mag pug can be carried in the pocket but it is easy to carry in a holster on your belt or an ankle holster. It is accurate at close range. It is exactly what you would expect from a 357 with a 2.5" barrel.

The ones made in the last 5 or so years have been pretty decent and they have a lifetime warranty. They are made in the USA if Brooklyn is still part of the USA. I have dealt with the owner and management and they a very nice people. I would buy one before I bought a Taurus revolver.

Owned several over many years- nothing negative to say about any---
I will say at todays prices I think I might find a used ole S&W Mdl 10 cheaper to keep in the truck :o
