Charter Arms Bulldog
I recently bought a new Charter Arms Bulldog and when I discovered it had a sticky ejector rod and a hammer screw that tried to wander off when the trigger was pulled, I did all the gymnastics one has to do th get it repaired.Now, this was a nice looking gun, but to repair the problem with the ejector, they replaced the cylinder with an obviously unfinished one. Tell me if this looks right to you. Notice all the rough machining marks in the fluting and the cylinder notches? I keep my guns pristine and this has really dropped whatever resale value this gun might have had. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got the gun back. They replaced the hammer to fix the hammer screw problem, but it looks like the also replaced the barrel with a dinged up, unfinished one, too. Really shabby and unprofessional. It shoots fine, but it shot fine before the repair as longs as you kept on eye on the hammer screw. The cylinder now has two chambers that are a bit too tight and I have to manually yank the spent cartridges out. Piece of jun now! I've emailed them to give them the opportunity to make this right, but I really don't expect to hear from them. I also got zero support from the store I bought this at. I had high hopes for Charter, too.
