Charter Arms Pitbull – Update

Many moons ago, we tested the Charter Arms Pitbull revolvers, which fire rimless cartridges.  We tested both the .40S&W and 9mm versions:

Well, Charter recently announced that they were redesigning the Pitbull to reduce capacity from 6 rounds to 5, in the interest of improving spent case extraction, which was one of the problems we encountered when we tested them.

While that would remedy one of the problems that we identified with the Pitbull, it won’t address the others.

    I have owned a pitbull 9mm and I agree it definitely isn`t the best revolver. First time I tried it… after about 50 rnds. I started to get intermittent lock ups. The action would stop about 1/3 of the way through the trigger pull or cocking and I would have to fiddle with the cylinder to get it to cycle. Not every shot but very frequently. I even tried without any cartridges in the cylinder. Same results. Not every pull but very frequent.

    I also had a few light strike misfires. All of them fired on the second chance.

    So, Charter Arms has tons of fixing to do!
