I've owned a few different Charter Arms made guns, an AR-7, not bad, a Little rought, a Charter Arms .38 Undercover Model, Lite Duty but OK! I have had a few 44's by Charter, an Older one in Blue steel, it was a bit roughly machined, but never failed to operate! I got a Newer one years later in Stainless steel, before charter went under and man was it BAD! Once trigger broke another time had all sorts of inteternal problems! I'd think long and hard before I bought even a new one? Just my .02! Plus, .44 Special ammo is a chore to find locally and I don't re-load that caliber?
