Very Nice!

I bought my daughter a Charter Arms Lefty cause she is a South paw. She loves it.


It is the standard hammer, not the pseudo hammer shown.

As a firearms company, they do enjoy a some what checkered past. From what I've read they're current offering are "good to go".
Have yet to meet a revolver guy who didn't want to own a 44 bull dog!

Now you have done it. I got a Charter Catalog. So many to choose from. Can you get the 357 without ports?

My first snubby was a Charter Undercover. Picked it up in the 1970's. Nice finish, lightweight, but a heavy trigger pull.

It's been perfectly reliable all these years. When I dust it off I shoot standard pressure .38 cal ammo. When carried, which is rare nowadays, I load it with soft lead hollowpoints.

For a 40 year old gun, I am pleased with it.

Op. Nice charters.
I walked in to Gander Mountain with that exact intent. they had four Bulldog .44s in the case, I checked three for timing and none were timed right. I didn't bother checking the forth. I ended up buying a few hundred dollars in ammo instead.

Very strange that all were out of time. I looked at a few. All were good. Including the one I bought. I have never handled or shot a charter that was new and out of time. Must be some kind of conspiracy in your area. What nudes were they? What was stamped on the barrel. Did you let gander know? FYI the new ones are better built, with better alloys, better finishing, and better sights than the old ones.

they were the new versions like whats posted here. I pointed out the timing issue to the clerk to explain why I kept wanting to see another of the same gun I handled. he didn't say anything, just handed me the next one. because I had the timing issue in the 80s with the two I bought I wanted to make sure this wasn't the case with a new one. thank goodness I asked that the trigger lock be removed so I could check or i'da been upset when I got home.

my 80s made OFF DUTY .38 is a sweet little gun, and id like to find another bulldog that checked out right, just haven't had the luck.

if anyone is in the Auburn Al. area with a s.s. bulldog .44 that I can inspect and shoot I have a 2" model 64 for trades.

if I could find a 3" .22lr pathfinder and a 2" .32long undercoverette I'd trade my Kahr PM9. needless to say, I like the old school C.A. Guns.
