The package I have been waiting for ..
Hopefully they have the kinks worked out of it
I have to wait a while till I get one …
Its the setup I mentioned to Charter Arms via email when they first announced the 6 shot 32 H&R
Next .. Id like to see a 8 shot 22 mag in the same setup
Nice, I had to send my .32 H&R Professional back. Came back perfect, I have enjoyed playing with it quite a bit. I need to email them and see if they cannot make one with adjustable sights like the Bulldog Target. Sights that move would be great for my handloads.
Where's the link on the CA website?
That photo looks like a 5-shot .38 Special.
Its not listed
I'll keep an eye on them if/when they come out. CA messed up the "Professional". I'll be skeptical of this one. If it's out in the wild for a while with no major problems, I might consider one.
I have a horrible case of being broke right now
Or Id be reviewing it at this moment
I am however a touch suspect about new model introductions and being a beta tester.
It's not a question of being decently built it's a question of quality control and quality assurance doing their job.
That’s kind of an interesting distinction to make, but fair enough.
I believe Charter can make a quality revolver, however it’s a matter of pure faith since every example of a charter made revolver that I’ve ever handled was a sloppy mess.
IMO, 22 Mag should have a 3" barrel. With 22 WMR in a small gun like this, an extra inch of barrel makes a huge difference.
Out of curiosity, what was wrong with it?
Oh, that's great, they even encourage us to do it ourselves. The Big Boys would never do that; lawyers have too tight a reign.
Yes, there are lots of comments on quality issues at Charter. I think they need to take a step back and re-evaluate their Quality Control process instead of just launching new models one after the other with questionable quality.
We should differentiate that the "new" Charter Arms is different than the previously-owned version, which was different than the originally owned CA.
Originally, it was owned by the founder. That floundered due to massive competition from S&W, Colt and Ruger in the revolver heyday. Then, some money-grubber bought the company and ran it into the ground without investing in it at all. Now, the son of the founder owns it again and is trying to turn it around. Employs lots of women, listens to customers, fixes problems. But we should not still be having QC problems at this stage, so there's still work to do.
It started locking up after around 250 rounds. Intermittent but there. I knew I was going to send it back so never did any exploratory. Came back with a new trigger and a solid very nice action. The report was not very specific.
I agree totally.. same with all cartridges , especially ammo designed for use in rifles .. but for my attended use for the revolver.. 3 inch barrel would not work …
Same reason my LCR357…has a 2inch barrel.. 6 inch barrel would help milk the performance out of the 357mag … but thats not my need
All of handguns are for carry .. not range toys or hunting…even the revolvers I carry while doing chores are compact ..
I too have a LCR (mine's in 38), also a 3" SP101 in 357. The weight difference makes more of an impact than the extra inch of barrel for 4:00 IWB carry. Pocket carry would be another story, though.
U need to be arrested
I agree. The design itself goes back many years and is well proven. It’s the finish and QC that is the issue.
Nice find Jerry!
