Charter arms "off duty" 38 spcl

Postby 84minieldo » Tue Aug 16, 2016 8:08 pm

They were asking a fair price,looks like first gen,may have been missing the ejector tip/screw but other wise no line on the cylinder and the only problem I saw with the finish was what looked like ten+ year old dust build up...at 23$(and that was adding a couple bucks for a round # payoff) for layaway I couldn't pass...from the looks of things I got a decent price

I'm not following. How much do you own the gun for?

BTW - Charter Arms will service older "non-Shelton" revolvers for like $50 plus parts.

Yes, very good deal. The ejector rod nut is always missing on these. You can find them for cheap on Fleabay or GB, I think Charter sells them too. I've had a few Charters over the years, they are pretty good guns for the money. Another nice thing is that lockwork parts usually just drop in with no fitting required. Give me a holler if you ever need help with it, I think I still have some parts and grips for them.

Yes, I think Charter sells that part for alot less.

..bailed it out today...the screw wasn't missing,it was replaced with the screw end for the new charter arms's's's "off duty"..........but...upon further inspection..after buying it...I noticed it has a full blown all the way through CRACK in the trigger gaurd about half an inch in front of the resting trigger.......don't think this will effect safety for shooting but I wanted yall'd opinion bout day crack..and I'll be doing a near full disassembly to check everything else

I'd be a touch paranoid: I would take it to the range, secure it to something stable, and fire some higher pressure ammo thru it remotely, then reinspect it. If nothing disastrous happens, I think you'll be okay except you might pinch yer trigger finger now and then. :(

Here's how the frame is https://www.gunpartscorp.com/Products/322860.htm. Coincidentally,the line for the numrich pic "x" is in the same spot as the crack for the lower left quarter of they're x...took the grips off and the swng arm off,everything else looks good..bought reg pressure 38 spcl for now, but will probly try the ++p remote fire before doing any sort of heavy range use with it
