    The Forgotten 9mm Federal Cartridge

    The 9mm Federal was a rimmed version of the 9mm Parabellum cartridge. Charter Arms made a revolver named the Pit Bull for it, from 1989 to 1991. Supposedly the .38 S&W could also be fired in the Pit Bull.

    An interesting concept that was either ahead of its time or doomed from the start, depending on your POV.

    Anybody have one of these stashed away in the dark recesses of their gun safe?

    9mm Federal Pit Bull
    Q: I'd like some information on a Charter Arms Pit Bull. The markings include "Pit Bull 9mm. Fed." on the left side of the barrel and "Charter Arms Corp. Stratford. Conn." on the right side. The serial number is 106XXXX. I would like to know the value and the caliber. I personally have never heard of this caliber. Is it just a 9mm Parabellum or something different? The gun appears to be in excellent condition. Any information you could provide would be appreciated. --J.S., Orangeville, OH



    A: The 9mm Federal is a rimmed variant of the 9mm Parabellum. Charter Arms' Pit Bull was a very limited-production revolver manufactured from 1989 to 1991 in 9mm Federal and .357 Magnum. The 9mm Federal version is a rather rare handgun, as very few were made. If one were so fortunate as to have an example, $500 would not be too high a value to place on it.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    sounds like a 9mm Auto-Rim
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
