anyone have experience with charter arms revolvers? i know they aren't horridly expensive, which is kinda the draw, but how do they hold up over time, and use?
Ive heard that Charter isn't was it used to be. Now, I don't know if this is true, as I've never owned one, but it does go with what you have said.Have a Charter Arms 32, that have had for 30 years and it is still great.
im not looking for a real heavy use gun. as long as it will go bang when the triggers pulled, thats about what im looking for. it definitely wont see as many rounds as my s&w's, but it never hurts to have a reliable back up.Not bad. Not real great, but not bad. Definitely better than the RG revolvers of the 60s, better than the Lorcin/Jennings class of arm. If you are looking for something to shoot 300 rds every Saturday, would keep looking. Finish not as good as S&W, Colt, Ruger, etc- but again, not bad.
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. AI just posted my experience with my new Charter arms 44 bulldog, great gun for the price, Charter Arms is a re- orginazed company and is putting out great made guns that are dependable etc
The old charter arms stuff is GTG. The new 'Charter2000' stuff is teh suck.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.
