Default 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.

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.
