I picked up a Charter Arms model 73270 Patriot .327 magnum with a 2.2" barrel. It's a real hand canon and fun to shoot but, I can't carry it because I had problems right out of the box: Shot way low. I had light primer strikes not strong enough to ignite the primer. Some spent casings would not eject from the cylinder, locking up the ejector rod. I sent the pistol back to Charter. They filed down the front sight and it is on target now. They said no problems with light primer strikes or ejection (LOL). I was using Speer Gold Dot ammo the first time out so I switched to Federal with brass casings. I fired 30 rounds with about 10 not firing on the first strike, double action. I discovered it shoots fine when cocked first. The light strike problems occur when I fire it double action. I am going to send it back to Charter again but I want to give them some direction (since they can't fix it on their own). My guess is the trigger bar needs adjusting. Anyone had a similar experience with a revolver or suggestions to fix this fun but "totally unreliable" pistol?
