The Shape of Things to Come

New .44 Bulldog

New .44 Bulldog

Charter Arms has been back in business for a while.  They have been making new versions of their classic .44 Bulldog and a variety of other models of revolver as well, including a single-action .22 mini-revolver.

Most models are stainless (some versions are available as blued), but they now make some aluminum-framed guns and some DAO models.  All have rubber grips and underlug barrels.  They also offer a wide assortment of special finishes for their guns (“The Pink Lady”, “Goldfinder”, etc.).  To be honest, some of the finishes are a bit over-the-top in my opinion.  But variety is the spice of life.


The iconic Bulldog was a blued-steel 3-inch .44 Special with a tapered barrel without an underlug, exposed hammer and wood grips.

Rumor has it that Charter is making a run of new Bulldogs in the classic configuration with a 3″ tapered barrel, deep blued finish, and wood grips.  No word on the presence of an underlug.  This special run might be offered through a single dealer.

Color me interested!
