    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.

    Nice pix. Let us know how it shoots.

    I had one of the mid-70's Charter Bulldog .44's. My only knock was the price of ammo...more than twice the price of .44Mag stuff.

    I've been getting really interested in the bulldog. I see it weighs about the same as a S&W 642...can I ask how does it compare size wise?

    Would it work as an ankle/pocket revolver? K frames are a bit larger than I can tolerate (because of where my work takes me, I have to have ABSOLUTE discretion and concealment from EVERYONE.

    What do you think? How does it compare to a S&W J frame?

    mavracer, did I see that right that you trimmed off the bottoms of those grips on your Pug? How does it handle that way?

    This is one of the current Charters, from the factory in Shelton? I'm thinking of trying to get in for the tour.

    I have an older Bulldog that is 100% reliable and accurate and has a great trigger....people tend to judge Charter Arms by a few bad apples.I love mine.
