    Estimber,

    CA, like H&R, makes (made) plain ole working guns, inexpensive pieces for the masses so to speak. CA had QC problems and that's the death knoll in the firearms world. That cannot be overlooked and that's what screwed them.

    Since 1982 I've owned and carried that Undercover because (initially) I couldn't afford a J-frame and because it works well and fills the bill. I own "better" guns, both automatics and revolvers, but I will never stop using that weapon.

    I don't believe there is a CA club or forum out there but I also don't feel that makes CA owners second-class citizens either. You either have a good gun or a bad one, we seem to have good ones, only a snob will tell you different.

    No time like the present : any interest in a Charter Arms Club ?
    How about maybe a .44spl club that would include other guns ?
    I currently own three older models; two 3" and one Pug.
    I also have a S&W HE in .44spl.
    Someday I'll post pics when I figure out how.

    check out www.usrange.org for a CA club...in the wheel gun section.
    If we treat every gun as if it was loaded, then why not treat every individual as if they are armed.

    LOL...me too. I've been trying to find something on them, on-line, but so far nothing.

    I don't believe CA made the piece but their name was on it. If I'm not mistaken it was a single-stack SA automatic made in Germany.

    Bob it

    I don't think that I need a single action option since I would most likely be shooting defensively at 10 feet.

    I am planning to have a gunsmith either "bob" the hammer or saw-off the hammer spur. If I do the latter, then I will basically have an SP101 -- only in .44 caliber.

    I would welcome advice. Should I modify the gun?
    I sent my bull dog, to magnaport arms 20 years ago! lost the ejector rod, bobed the hammer, changed the finish, barrel was shortened to 1 inch 7/8, and was magnaported, special grips, sight was removed! Air marshall style at the time. Its very sharp, and a handfull to shoot. lol I would shoot at 55 gallon drums, and it would leave a softball dent, the drums were made better then!
