Default Which would you trust?

Which inexpensive revolver would you trust more? A Taurus or a Charter Arms. Not any precise model, just their guns overall.

Taurus. But more so because I've had a Rossi, and it's the same exact thing. Have never even seen a Charter in person.

However, for a very negligible amount of extra funds, you can usually find a nice, used comparable Smith and Wesson. Something to think about.

The only revolver I owned was a .357 from Taurus. I did not like the quality.

That's true but I'm looking for an inexpensive revolver to use so I don't have to use my Colt in the woods.

Any serious problems or just the cosmetics?

I have a Charter arms 38 special that my wife likes to shoot. She keeps it in her night stand on her side of the bed. We have shot it a good bit, never had any problems.
Also have a Taurus 9mm PT99, never had a problem with that either.

BUT!!, I would go with the Charter arms in a lower cost revolver.
