They're the only folks manufacturing a left-handed revolver. There's one in my son's future.

Following the procedure for inspecting a revolver, I have to say the lockup is pretty good and no front to back play on this Pitbull.

Then if the timing is good and the barrel is straight and consistent it will probably shoot good. But then they are going to fix the barrel. My beef with CA is just that ultra light model pops bought. That thing is just to light and sloppy to last, even for the money.

Charter customer service is first rate. They will correct any deficiencies.
The double action trigger pull will relax a bit after some use.

Yup, have noticed that just by dry firing it a bunch.

I decided to take the Pitbull to the range just to see if there might be more issues with the revolver before returning it to Charter Arms; well, I glad I did. Found out that I couldn't fully insert a round into one of the chambers. It stuck out just enough to prevent the cylinder from closing easily and if I forced it closed, the cylinder would not rotate. For the rest of the range visit it became a 4 shot revolver. One more defect for them to fix.

Iím glad I brought a 1911 along because that way my range visit wasnít a total disappointment. BTW, the 1911 is so much more comfortable to shoot when compared to the snappy Pitbull and a lot more accurate. Go figure.

You got lemon man. To bad.

Not to long ago a guy or two round here bought Windicator revolvers in 357. Any up date on those? They are Weihrauch's and reading European reviews they like them.

I keep mine in my car. I've got a few hundred .357's and a couple boxes of .38's through it so far. No issues.
I like it.
