Charter Arms, manufacturer of American made affordable and reliable revolvers for forty-seven years, has released the world's first .40 caliber Rimless Revolver. Serious caliber enthusiasts will appreciate this model built on the same frame as the Charter Arms .44 Special.
The Pit Bull has a five shot; 2.3 inch barrel with a 416 stainless steel matte finish frame with Charters full rubber grip. With an overall length of 6 ¾ inches it weighs 20 ounces and has a fixed frame rear sight and a ramped front sight with a standard hammer. A DAO hammer is available upon request.
The Charter Arms .40 caliber provides a rimless cartridge extractor assembly and a method of use that solves a long felt need in the firearms industry. It provides a dual coil spring assembly located in the extractor to allow the insertion and retention of a .40 caliber cartridge in each chamber of the revolvers' cylinder.
After firing, this unique system allows the shooter easy ejection of spent cartridges for immediate reloading. Charter Arms has taken the difficulty of rimless loading and ejection to the simplicity of the rimmed cartridge in the revolver industry.
Nick Ecker, president of Charter Arms, said, "The Pit Bull is the ideal revolver for law enforcement officers to use as their back up, because they can now carry a revolver that utilizes the same ammo as their sidearm. And for the .40 caliber enthusiast, it gives them the first revolver that shoots their ammo without utilizing moon clips."
