This is my first revolver from Charter Arms. Would like a tighter fit on the crane at the cylinder, but due to the design, there isn't a lot of steel there. It handles the 44 Spl round with comfort though it consistently hit 5" or so low at 15 feet. Accuracy is decent, and I think the trigger is good for any price. If you are looking for a compact revolver with more whallop than a 38 Spl and more controllability than 357 snubs, this is a great choice.

Buds service is 5 star excellent. The Charter Bulldog is really nice but the finish on the end of the barrel is pitted. The rest of the revolver is fine. At this price point and considering this is a working revolver as opposed to a safe queen, I'll take a star for the rough spot on the barrel and go enjoy it. Had I inspected this in a store or gunshow, I might have passed. Then again, I would have almost certainly paid more. If this Bulldog lives up to it's service expectation, then perhaps it will earn back half a star in the future. Time will tell. I will be purchasing from Buds again.

This was my first purchase from Bud's Gun Shop and I must say the transaction was smooth, the Charter Arms Bulldog 44SP arrived in a nice caring case and the gun was in perfect condition. I opted for the 90 day pay plan and actually completed the purchase early. The delivery was "on time" and never had an issue from the time I selected my gun until it arrived at the FF dealer.

I have picked out a 1911 and it is already on 90 day layaway, it not easy these days to find a company that provides customer service, so I will continue to shop with Bud's , and thank you Bud's for a real satisfied buying experience.

Fast delivery from Bud's, as usual. Great light weight and slim revolver. Everyone should have one of these!

Great revolver for carry, night stand or glove box. A pleasure to shoot, even more so with the Pachmayr Compact Grip. The .44 Special is a fine calibre for a defensive firearm. Given thatt it is a Bulldog with the lightened frame, you want to be very selective in your ammunition choice. Save the very hot rounds for your beefier revolvers (Ruger, Smith, Colt)...go with 200gr Speer Gold Dot .44 SPL #23980 or similarly pressured personal defence rounds. More than enough to do the job.

Excellent service from Buds Gun Shop. Am buying all my new firearms through this site, can't beat the price or service.
