    Anyone have any experience with their guns? Having been born and raised in Connecticut (check the avatar) I'm always curious aboutCT firearmscompanies and I haven't heard much of anything about Charter Arms.

    Many moons ago I had a nice blued .38 snubby by Charter...."off duty special" if I remember correctly.Solid gun, shot well, good fit and finish. This was back in '84-'85, so things may have changed......

    Never owned one, as I'm not much of a revolver fan, but I've shot a few over the years, and while they aren't much to look at (think deep blued Colt Python), they are a reliable weapon.

    I purchased their "Southpaw" in Mar 2008. I've put 450 rnds thru it, and I need to send it back for repair. The cylinder spindle has excessive play in the crane, and the cylinder itself has excessive rotational play in the "lockup mode".

    I bought a Ruger SP101, which I really like, even tho it's not left-handed.

    Every Charter Arms gun I've had has been excellent. From their 'Explorer' series, through at least four different revolvers. Very reliable, very well made.
