So are Charter Arms and S&W the only two current manufacturers who are making 44 special?

Add to the list the Colt SAA, USFA, Ubertis copies of Colt SAA and even the Winchester 1873.

I should have been more specific......I'm wanting a double-action with a 2" to 3" barrel.

Take a look at my gun I just got back.

So I know that a lot of people out there don't like Charter Arms revolvers, but thought I would share some pics of my .44 Special that I just got back from Magnaport. I didn't get it ported, but I had some other work done. I had them file down the front sight, and replace it with an XS Big Dot Tritium sight. I also had them mini bob the hammer, and jewel and polish the hammer and trigger.

Just waiting on my Simply Rugged Holster to show up any day now to complete my new trail gun.

That's just gorgeous! I really would like some decent size wood grips if I do get a Charter Arms.....anybody know who makes them?

Badger make them, but they are only big enough to get two fingers around making your pinky dangle. Not sure if Hogue makes wood grips for the .44 or not.

That is a great looking gun...is it about the same size as a S&W J frame (642)? I'm thinking very strongly about getting a new one.

rossi used to make the model 720 stainless, you might find one used for the right price. it is a little heavy for carry. imo

The barrel measures in at 2.5 inches, and my j frame has a 1 7/8 barrel. It is a bit wider as .44 rounds are girthier than .38 or .357. I think it weighs in at about 19 oz.

I'd love to see a Ruger SP101 in .44 Special. Doubt that they could do it without enlarging the cylinder and frame, but I'd buy one in a hurry.

There's just something about the .44 Special I've always been drawn to.

That would be sweet. I have an SP101 in .357. I Also had a tritium sight installed on that piece as well. It is a bit hefty though, and doesn't hide in a pocket as well.
