A Cool Nighht a tonight & Charter Arms Update

So anyhow, I have a super interesting night tonight...Marshal and I are teaching self-defense concepts to a class of the top women advertising executives in NYC. Neat, huh? They're all actually going to get the opportunity to show a Ruger 10/22 under the tutelage of the excellent instructors of Manhattan's Westside Rifle & Pistol Club. I'll let you know how it rolls...

Yesterday we went over to CT to visit with Charter Arms, makers of one of my favorite snubs, the .44 Bulldog. Charter is cool because it is totally Old Skool, a Gun Valley company making guns like they've been making guns for a century. One of the most impressive things about Charter was their "rework" cabinet...it was almost empty. The "new" Charter Arms is doing an outstanding job of delivery quality revolvers right out of the box.

I was surprised to learn that the colored revolvers have become Charter's best-sellers. Like everyone I've talked to over the last few weeks, snubs are just flying out the door.

I think we'll be going back to film at the factory, then compare it to a CNC-based production facility like Masterpiece...be a cool way to show people the different ways of producing guns!

I take that to mean they are using manual machines for the metal work.
That would explain how they can keep their prices lower, since manual machines cost hundreds of $ while CNC machines cost tens of thousands of $.
However, while a highly experienced manual operator can produce work just as precise as CNC they will never be able to match the speed or "repeatability" of NC machinery.

Their customer service is good, but the product is not up to par. I bought a Bulldog last year and had to send it back twice---once for the cylinder coming loose from the ejector rod and another time because the cylinder would bind and the trigger would not move it. They sent me a new gun, which I appreciated, but the cylinder release button was so rough that you couldn't engage it. I sold it for a $150 loss and decided to move on...

MB, Charter makes a quality gun? That will be news to a hell of a lot of us who have examined Charter products in the LGS and moved on.
The Charter guns aren't even all that much cheaper than an Airweight Smith, at least locally. And the Airweight Smith is a MUCH better gun.

Not sure where you're buying your Charter Arms guns from - but I've had my .44 Bulldog for nearly 3 years now and put 500 rds (or more) through it w/o a hitch. In fact, it's my warm weather EDC gun. I have no concerns about trusting my life to my Bulldog - which fires consistant 3" groups at 20 yds, and its action is as smooth as silk.
