I see that charter arms is back in bussiness. Any opinions on the fit and finish of the new Charter 2000 pistols.
I was looking at the undercover 38sp.
in stainless for $225. NIB Is that a reasonable price or should I try to find a used s-w or colt.

Charter Arms did go out of business of late but they are as you say back in business. Here http://www.sightm1911.com/lib/review/bulldog44.htm is a little write up on one of their present products that I produced for a good friend's web site. Sounds to me like the price is right.

Charter Arms

I've loved little Charter Arms Undercovers ever since I bought one new back in 1969. I still have it, and it resides under the seat of my El Camino (I'm 60) with Barami hip grips on it. It still shoots as new, accurate and reliable. I also have some j-frame smiths, and a couple of Colt Cobras, and for the money the Charter Arms is a real bargain. I did see some of the "Charco" snubbies (built after Charter Arms folded originally), and the workmanship left something to be desired. I still have my little brochure assuring me "lifetime warrenty", but I doubt if that extends to whoever is producing this last incarnation of the fine little pistol.. You can still buy the original pistols every now and then, and I would prefer an original if I could find one.

Having taken a few of these revolvers apart, the internals just don't inspire confidence. Personally, I'd stick with a S&W, Colt or Ruger for a self defense revolver.

Charter Arms

. " Personally, I'd stick with a S&W, Colt or Ruger for a self defense revolver".[/quote] I agree with Dave. I have a Charter Arms undercover, S/W J. Frame and a Colt Cobra and the pistol I keep in the wifes car for personal protection is the Cobra. The Cobra has an additional round should it be needed, it's just as light as the Charter, it is high quallity and I have no doubt it will function perfectly forever. (as long as it is not abused in some way). There are used Cobras for sale on the internet and other places, and even tho they are more expensive than Charter Arms products, they are more gun. You get what you pay for. Don't buy cheap anything if you can help it.. Particularly regarding your personal safety, or the safety of your loved ones. Save your money and get a pistol that will last a lifetime.

Charter Arms is NOT "dead!" Not by a damned sight!

I recommend looking up their new, fullframe all-steel 'Bulldog' revolvers they are coming out with in .32 H&R Magnum (2" & 4" barrels w/adjustable or fixed sights) as well as .357 S&W Magnum and .44 S&W Special with 4" & 6" barrels w/fixed or adjustable sights. They will be at the S.H.O.T. show next february!

Enjoy!
