I have a charter arms off duty 2inch blued
1100xxx' Can anyone tell me the date of birth
and if this is one of the good ones or bad ones?
It seems to shoot okat 10 yards but is not one of
the smoothest revolvers I own. By the way this
is a 38 special. Thanks in advance for any help.
Tom

I don't know offhand its "born on" date, but the general rule is that, if it's a "Charter Arms" gun, and not one labeled as one of the other names the company has gone by (during some ownership changes), which are "Charco" and "Charter 2000", then it's of one of the better generations. It should be labeled as either "Bridgeport, CT" or "Stratford, CT".

These aren't Smith and Wessons; they were manufactured to be lighter and more affordable than the higher-priced competitors of the era in which they were introduced, namely, the S&W and Colt products.

The company's original owners are back at the helm, and are reportedly doing a good job bringing the product back into good graces.

Here's a contact page for you. If you call Charter Arms with the serial number, they'll tell you exactly when it was made.

If the right side of the barrel says Bridgeport or Stratford, you're doing OK.
If it's a Charco or Charter 2000 gun, you may want to consider trading it in.
