    The original Charter Arms Company manufactured revolvers in Bridgeport, Connecticut from 1964 to around 1970. They then moved to Stratford, Connecticut. The Bridgeport and Stratford guns are known as "First Generation guns." The company has went bankrupt and changed address several times in the years since.

    Your Charter Arms revolver is an early model manufactured in Bridgeport, Connecticut between 1964 & 1970. It is difficult to arrive at an exact date because no list by date of manufacture for the First Generation Charter Arms guns exists to my knowledge.
