Charter Arms Pitbull 45 ACP

#1

Post by rp_photo » Sat Mar 17, 2018 12:30 pm

Just picked one up and shot it yesterday with 230 grain FMJ's. I would describe it as "Magnum lite" due to a bit less noise and recoil while still being satisfying. It would be a great option for someone who wants a bit more "oomph" but not too much.

The only issues I had was a bit of sharpness on the trigger tip and guard edges, which a gunsmith is fixing for around $25.

Does anyone else have a Pitbull in either of the 3 calibers?
CHL since 2/2011
Glock 26, S&W 442, Ruger SP101 .357 3",
S&W M&P 40, Remington 870 Express 12 ga 18"

No.
Sounds interesting.
I have a .44 Special Bulldog.

Shooting to the point of aim? Not so much. Added a Crimson trace grip. Will soon have that problem taken care of.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
