This is a good quality revolver used for hunting with chest holster. Would definitely recommend this product.

The Charter Arms Target Mag Pug 357 is the 2nd Charter Arms revolver I've bought. The first was a 45 Colt Bull Dog XL I got about 6 months ago. I was so pleased with the quality, accuracy, and handling of the Bull Dog XL, that I decided to purchase the Mag Pug Target .357 a couple months later. The finish on the Mag Pug .357 was not as uniform as it was on the Bull Dog, with some parts of the left side of the frame not as thoroughly bead-blasted as should have been. The front sight also seemed a bit canted to one side (barely noticeable). I contacted Charter Arms, and they sent me a pre-paid shipping label and box. They also arranged for FedEx to pick up the gun at my house.
In a couple of weeks, I got the gun back. The finish was great and the sight was also improved. As with the Bull Dog, the Mag Pug works flawlessly and is very accurate. I was shooting from my porch using a towel folded on top of a board - not a Ransom Rest, but the best I had. Groups at 15 yards were 1 1/2 inches. Timing is spot-on and the cylinder gap is nice and tight. Overall I am very pleased with the gun. by the way, while it is advertised as the Target Mag Pug, the engraving on the left side of the barrel reads "Target Bulldog .357." I emailed the nice lady at Charter Arms about this discrepancy, and she said the engraving is correct - it is actually called a Target Bull Dog.
I have owned Smith & Wesson, Ruger, and Taurus revolvers on and off for over 30 years. I've had good success with all of them. I'd say the Charter Arms is a very good quality gun for half of what a Smith or Ruger costs. Why the cost difference? Charter Arms uses a bead-blast finish, which cuts down on production costs. Also, the lower part of the revolver (trigger guard and grip) slips up into the steel frame, similar to a Ruger. There is no attempt by Charter Arms to hide this, and blend the two pieces together as with a Ruger. Some might say it doesn't look as good, but I think it is simply different, and a lot cheaper for production costs. If you want a quality firearm for a very reasonable price, I highly recommend the Charter Arms .357. If by some chance you have a problem, Charter Arms will stand by their product and make it right.

    Ritchie, due to 10 million plus new 1st buyers and the sellout of State compliant Semi-Auto's in the last couple of years, The ole wheel gun has been is a sustained high demand and low supply status ever since.
