    The 32 H&R is seeming to get a bit of a resurgence... being that alot of 327mag owners are finding it as a alternative to the fire breathing 327 ....
    I just heard from Nick Ecker himself, that the
    light small framed Undercoverette was gaining a extra hole .... going SIX shot ....so a 12oz six shot is being to roll out ...

    A 12oz ... DAO .. 6 shot .. small framed revolver in 32 H&R with old school wooden grip panels , would be fantastic...
    a setup like my 12oz Charter Goldfinger, only a six shot 32 H&R

    If this one shoots POA then I’ll need one.

    I hope they offer one with a black frame and stainless cylinder with high polish.

    If it runs like my Goldfinger or other small frame Charters ... it will be point of aim ... they are not changing the size of the Undercoverette... just adding a hole in the cylinder ..
    If enough people show interest .. Im sure they will offer different finishes and such
    .. you drop them a email

    If I was new to revolvers, I'd probably jump into the .32s that are out there right now and never go into the .38 Special/.357 Magnum.

    I just really don't want to add another cartridge size to my inventory, even though I'd be missing an increase in capacity. What Ruger has done with the Single Seven is just one example of a perfectly sized .32. Same with these DA small frame revolvers.

    Nick Ecker is a CEO unlike any other. He actually enjoys talking to people. I have a Pitbull 9mm, a Bulldog XL 45 Colt, and an Undercover Lite 38 spcl. All 3 are keepers. My UC Lite is a beautiful "Lipstick Red" version that I picked up from a Las Vegas pawn shop for $200. She's a 12 oz. beauty that looked like it had never been fired. Some people cringe at a 12 oz. handgun but my reloads fly quite nicely through it.

    In my Aluminum framed Charter 38 .. I carry Hornady 110gr standard pressure.. and practice with 148gr LWC ...
    I have a half a dozen Charter revolvers... I like how they are small & lightweight for caliber ...

    A 6 shot Undercoverette is in my sights ... hopefully a black aluminum framed model... all black and the small , thin wooden grip panels

    So didn't CA come out with six and seven shot .32 H&R Magnum Revolvers in the first place?

    Part of me says that anyone else who is going to see my EDC gun probably is more focused on the muzzle than the color of the frame! :D

    I emailed Charter Arms a couple of months ago asking the same thing. Good to hear they are coming out with a 6 shot Undercoverette. I’ve got the stainless 16 oz. 5 shot one. A 6 shot 12oz. version will be an automatic buy for me.

    I stay away from low end cheap guns. Every time Charter Arms revolvers are discussed the feedback seems very positive. I am under the impression that Charter Arms is pretty safe to bet my money on? Where do they fall short of the more expensive revolvers like a S&W? Is it build quality? Finish? Heavy gritty trigger pulls? Just curious as there seems to be several Charter Arms owners on this thread... sorry for the hijack.

    This may be the handgun I choose to buy in trifecta. Next month I get daughter #3 and they will each have identical 22lr, AR, revolver, and shotgun. I might even add in a cheap semiauto if a good affordable option in a light recoiling caliber pops up... looking at Ruger to drop a LCP 32acp.

    Well finish is something I'm not really concerned about. If Double Action, I have to be able to pull the trigger without a lot of effort with one finger on trigger only. I don't give a rat's rear end if it is in .22 LR... Gun must be also in affordable range to my income.

    A S&W aluminum J-frame isn’t much more expensive than a Charter. I consider them about the same with the brand name markup accounting for the minor price difference. A S&W K-frame is a different story though.

    You hit the nail on the head. I have resolved to add another gun chambered for a cartridge for which I don't already have a gun requiring it.

    MikeinOr...Going back a few years the CA revolvers I looked at weren't the best in the finish department (nicks, tooling marks). But as of late they've upped their game and the finish is a lot better. To me their triggers aren't all that "heavy" and definitely not gritty.

    I can't speak to earlier versions, but I bought a CA Undercover back in February and I had nothing to complain about as far as the finish goes. It's a good gun for the price!

    I have 7 Charter revolvers... a dozen plus in the past . I think I have always had at least one in the past 35yrs ....
    I’ve never had a cracked frame , canted barrel on a Charter ... and I’ve owned alot of them
    I can’t say that about S&W J frames and that is a fact ..
    The best customer service in the industry

    I hear they are even fixing the older ones from long before they owned the company. for a modest fee. if they even charge i've heard of them letting it ride.
