New for 2016

Check out our new additions to Charter Arms!

Nitride Finish
Nitride is a new, proprietary process that adds hardness to the finish of the revolver. It also reduces friction and wear. With a scratch-resistant surface and extended life in the rifling and chambers, Nitride keeps your Charter handgun looking – and working – like new!

Boomer
A compact version of Charter’s classic .44 Bulldog, Boomer is designed specifically for concealed carry. It features a DAO hammer, full rubber combat grips and a matte stainless finish. It is also available in black Nitride Finish.
