Default charter arms

Imo the charter arms are less durable than other major brand revolvers-I've had to repair several so that MAY affect my views on them. They are meant to be carried more than shot.

Bought my lovely wife a Target Bulldog .44sp in 1978. Doubt it's ever had 300 rounds through it. It still lives on her night stand. (night stand is not original) It works, but it's put together with drift pins where real firearms use screws, and the pins tend to wander. I've put on a bit of lok-tite with a tooth pick to make them stay home, but if I was to do it over, I'd rather just buy a real gun. She now has a Colt Officers ACP to carry.

The old ones are well made compared to the newer ones.

I can't comment on the new ones, but years ago I got a Bulldog and a Bulldog Pug, 44 Special, stamped "Stafford Conn" and I will never let them go. Both revolvers have been totally reliable. The .44 is not especially comfortable in a light snubbie, but not brutal. Both of these revolvers are easy to carry.

I have to agree 'Redtail'. They may not be the prettiest guns,-(mines all flat black)- but it has NEVER not fired when I wanted it to. A

I have an old Target Bulldog .357 Magnum, my Grandfather bought it new in '74 i think, he gave it to my uncle and my uncle recently gave it to me. It's nowhere near as 'pretty' as the newer revolvers, but i took it out to shoot it after it being in a gun safe all this time and its extremely accurate, I was surprised.. I love the gun!

I had an Offduty (I think) .38 model a few years ago. It shot decent and was light and easy to handle. Plus I think I only paid about $150 for it.

I have and carry a Charter Arms .44 made by the new company Charter Arms 2000. Not a great looker always goes bang and hits where I point it. No its not a Smith and Wesson but neither is the price
