    Charter Arms Undercover Southpaw

    Being that I'm one of those rare people who thinks in their right mind ...
    I saw this left handed Revolver in American Rifleman this month and thought it would be great to have.

    Well,
    A couple of thoughts.

    I bought a new Charter Arms Undercover wayyy back around 1970.. It was an original Charter Arms, long before Charco, etc... That little snubby was an excellent revolver and in fact still does duty as a cc firearm for an Uncle I gave it to.

    I've read where later versions of the original Charter Arms (Charco, etc) were iffy.. I don't know about the new ones..

    I'm a lefty. BUT, I've had to adjust to using regular snubbys for so many years it's just natural for me. I don't care to buy a lefty specific firearm as I'm quite comfortable with the others, but if I were a young person I might think differently.

    My opinion of the Charter Arms Undercover I HAD is excellent. I'd hate to point you in the wrong direction, but fortunately the price of the new "lefty" version is not so pricy as be that big a deal..

    Hope this helps, a little..

    It'd probably help a left hander out to have the release on the gun's right side.

    I've got a recent Charter Arms Undercover and I like it for what it is - an inexpensive 5 shot, 16oz, 38spl revolver. It works, though not as nicely as my wife's SP101, but enough to trust to go bang and hit what I want at 7 yards. If you can get the lefty for a good price I think you'll be happy with it.

    I've been looking, but can't find one in stock anywhere, I'm a little nervous to order sight unseen. The dealer listed on Charter Arms website for my area did not stock any Charter's, and did not have kind words for them.

    Don't trust gun store commandos.

    A partner of mine used to carry a Charter Arms Undercover as his backup. It always worked.
    The Edge ... there's no honest way to describe it. The only ones who know where it is have gone over.

    I have a CA .38 that was built somewhere between the late '70s and the early '80s. It is a dam n fine weapon, I trust it every bit as much as our Taurus's and Smiths. The company has filed bankruptcy a couple of times in the last 10 years or so and has changed owners at least once in that time, so there may have been some quality issues at some times. On the other hand, who could really compete with Smith, Ruger and Taurus in the snubby market without having some financial speed bumps? I say if you can find one at a good price buy it, wouldn't be suprised if you come out of the deal happy.
