About the Gun

Charter revolvers are 100% US made. They utilize a one-piece frame design and a completely blocked hammer system which cannot fire unless the trigger is held in full rear position. Cylinder lock up is in three places instead of two: cylinder stop and ejector rod collar for additional safety, strength and cylinder-to-barrel lock up.

About the Cartridge

This is one of the first generation pistol cartridges designed to use smokeless powder. Its performance is modest compared to the .44 Remington Magnum but is very potent compared to the .38 special. The .44 S&W Special round can be fired in modern revolvers chambered for the .44 Remington Magnum.
