Charter Arms Rimless Revolvers

Gunpundit has the writeup.

If you want a .40 revolver, here’s where you’ll get it. Also in 9mm and .45ACP.

If your primary home-defense gun is a semi-auto, but your significant other prefers a revolver, this is a way to use the same cartridge in both weapons.

I like the idea, but I’ll probably stick with my S&W 940 and 1917 — I like moonclips. They make reloading so fast.

    With the ridiculous rise in the price of .38 Special ammo, versus 9mm not going up as much, maybe a 9mm revolver makes sense….

    Ruger used to fit the Blackhawk single action with a 9mm Parabellum cylinder. It makes a very pleasant revolver to shoot.

    About the Charter Arms Rimless, I can’t find any specs on bbl length. I’d really, and I mean REALLY like to have one in .45 ACP with a 4″ barrel. Think for a moment how sweet it will be to have a nice defence sidearm that’s also a legal deer gun. Thank YOU Washington State.

    I’m curious about this revolver now. Why doesn’t Charter Arms’ website have a single word on it? Why does the photo above look like the name at the lower right was poorly photoshopped, and why would the presser photo be taken of a gun with a LOT of cosmetic flaws?

    I talked to a part-time employee of Keith’s Gun Shop, one of, if not the biggest in OR yesterday, and he hadn’t heard of this revolver despite having sold a number of Charter Arms revolvers lately.

    Might we all have been had?

    BTW, Gerry N, if the revolver IS for real, they will probably produce it in a 4″ model eventually. A look at their web site shows most of their revolvers can be bought in a 4″ version.
