    Hey guys, does anyone out there have any experience with revolvers from Charter Arms?
    They seem good priced, I'm looking at a .357, for my wife to conceal.

    She carries a semi auto, a minimalistic one, a .38 small frame Cobra.
    I'm afraid in a moment of crisis it might jam on her:eek:, paradoxically though, I always carry a PF9 at four O'clock position, and an extra mag on my left pocket.
    Please let me know your experience with Charter arms revolvers.

    Charter has went through a ton of incarnations in the past 20 years. Older Charter's were pretty good guns, can't say I'd want any that were made in the last 20-25 years though. For revolvers, I stick with S&W, older Colts, and Rugers...

    New to this forum but not to shooting (bought my first .45, Colt LWT Commnader in 1975). I haven't owned a Charter Arms since the early 80's but based on my dismal experiences with .38 & .44 models I wouln't touch another one. Both routinely went out-of-time, shot loose and exhibited very poor QC.
