FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Bulldog is a 5-shot, solid-framed, traditional double-action revolver produced by Charter Arms in the USA and first introduced in 1973. It was a top-selling gun during the 1980s and it is considered to be Charter Arms’ trademark firearm. The modern variant of the Bulldog is still in production to this day.
The Bulldog was designed to be concealed easily because of its small size, yet also fire a “big bore” caliber (it was available chambered in .357 Magnum and .44 Special).
It has no sharp edges to contend with when carrying the weapon in a holster or a pocket, and is therefore considered by many as a good self-defense revolver.
This gun is in fair to good used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The blued finish on the barrel, frame and cylinder is good, with some wear marks and a few small scratches on the barrel.
There is some very light wear on the edges of the top strap and trigger guard, and on the front of the cylinder.
The original wooden grips are still very good with the odd, extremely light dent in places.
The cylinder lock-up is still extremely tight.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense as well as every-day, concealed carry.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports*:
- IDPA – Revolver division
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
*Even though this revolver could technically be used for these sports, the 5 shot capacity would greatly disadvantage the shooter. This revolver is better suited for self defense.
The notorious serial killer David Berkowitz, also known as “The .44 Caliber Killer” and the “Son of Sam” used a Charter Arms Bulldog chambered in .44 Special to commit a series of attacks and murders in New York City during 1976–1977.
