    I recently acquired a Charter Arms .38 snub nose revolver. This is a Stainless gun w/wood grips - not current production.

    I have fired 20-25 rounds of .38 LRN (158 gr) through it and function seemed fine.

    I was cleaning it afterwards and noticed slight preening on 2 of the cylinder notches. I'm pretty sure they weren't that way before.

    Should I-
    1 keep shooting and see what happens
    2 send it off to Charter or some other 'smith to adjust
    3 trade it and take my lump
    4 ?????

    Can you post pics?

    I have a bunch of Charters, and haven't observed anything like that, so I'm interested in seeing what you're dealing with.

    If it proves to be a problem, I'd send it to Charter to fix and just keep the gun. I think those older stainless Undercover .38s are sweet.
