As some of you have read in my previous posts around the forum, I had bought my wife a Charter Arms .38 spl for CC. I bought it mainly for the price and size. Out of all the .38 revolvers, this seemed to be the cheapest as far as price is concerned. Now at the time of purchase, I was a little concerned because I had never heard of Charter Arms before but the sales person assured me that they make reliable guns and that it was mainly a branding thing. To be honest, I am extremely new to firearms in general so I thought it was just me. I just did a little bit of research and found that Charter Arms actually went into bankruptcy in the 90s and announced it would be filing for bankruptcy again in 2005 until they partnered up MKS. :shock:

So for those of you who are more seasoned firearm owners and users, what are your perceptions of Charter Arms? Are they a good brand as far as firearms are concerned? Do they hold a strong reputation?

My wife has a charter in .38 and it has been a great gun, no problems of any kind. But because of that I have experience with customer service, which is a good thing. But it's been a great gun.

I don't think you have anything to worry about when it comes to Charter Arms. My father had one, which was his piece on the job as an officer in Racine, Wisconsin many years ago and it only ever misfired one time; when he broke up a bar fight & a huge 6'8" black man was destroying the place, and had already knocked his partner out. He hit my dad & grabbed his gun away (the Charter Arms) and it misfired when he tried to shoot my dad. Never misfired before or since! I thank God daily that HE intervened.
I wouldn't worry at all. :)
