Charter Arms Bulldog Features
The Bulldog takes .44 Special caliber rounds in a snub nose revolver whose barrel length is 2.5 inches. It’s tiny, but it packs a punch. Unloaded, this revolver is only 20.5 ounces and can carry up to five rounds, which doesn’t add a whole lot to its weight. Like all Charter Arms handguns, the Bulldog features the hammer block transfer bar safety system, making it one of the safest revolvers around. This system was actually created by Charter Arms and is one of the most popular systems in use on revolvers.
The entire frame is made from a single piece of steel, which is part of what makes it so light. Charter also cut down on unnecessary moving parts to make the gun as simple as possible. This also helps the prodigious reliability of these firearms. Fewer moving parts means fewer things that can go wrong.
