Re: Opinions on Charter Arms .38 revolvers?
Ive never owned a "current production" Charter revolver. I HAVE owned some of the early production ones, including a "Son of Sam" .44 3" unshrouded Bulldog, and a similar "age" Undercover. They were excellent revolvers, and I have no complaints. As for current production, I can only say that from the aspect of "mechanical similarity" to the early ones, assuming that the same design plans and tooling are still in use, should be of decent quality. If I am not mistaken, all the CA revolvers are or WERE built on alloy frames, so you should take this into consideration if you plan to digest a lot of +p stuff and you are really interested in a carbon or stainless steel frame. I personally have come to PREFER alloy framed carry revolvers as they are simply WAY more comfortable to carry and therefore they are WAY more likely to be WITH you if you arent "burdened" with em. I guess dollar for dollar, it would be accurate to compare the CA's to Taurus and Rossi revolvers, rather than Ruger S&W & Colt, as they are certainly "cheaper" production arms. I have long wondered what sort of "quality" one can expect from the ArmsCorp revolvers from the Philippines. If anyone has any experience with em, I would appreciate some info.
