All that said the gun is exceptionally light 26 oz fully loaded and quite small with a width of 1.6 in at the cylinder and recoil is really quite mild. You can also fix the nasty trigger by replacing the spring with a lighter one. Also Charter Arms deserves some credit for making a DA 45 LC in the sub 2.5 lb range which no one else seemed to want my money for so I would give them .75 of a star back for that. I feel like Charter could up the quality and maybe offer a switchable 45 ACP cylinder to make it a mainstay. I would pay for more attention to detail. Overall I would give this a 3.75/5
Fit finish and function of this Bulldog was excellent and even the Cylinder chamber throats were tighter in size than I had read at .453
Fired my factory and hand load ammo with no issues and a great little carry pistol with a nice .45 Colt punch.
Yes it has some recoil but firing it one handed was no issue. The smallest DA .45 Colt revolver on the market!
Questions & Answers
Stewart, the CHARTER ARMS 74530 BULLDOG XL .45 LC will fire the occasional +P loads but it is not recommended to shoot a steady diet of +P loads in a shorter than 4 inch barrel Sir. ----- https://charterfirearms.com/pages/faqsSee 2 more answers |
Q: Are the CHA Bulldog 44 Special 2.5in and the Bulldog XL 45LC 2.5in the same size, at least for sizing holsters?
Walter, yes Sir they are the same size for holster selection. The 45LC is 1oz heavier due to caliber only.See 3 more answers |
