    Charter Arms Magnum Pug

    Quality

    My neighbor and I purchased the new magnum pug in .41 Rem mag. Both revolvers have had issues with the cylinder latch. This is a result of poor design and perhaps materials. Otherwise, my pug shoots to point of aim and is comfortable to carry. I have been using .41 Special data and have developed several loads that provide velocities around 925 fps. With the 23 ounce weight these loads allow for fast and accurate follow up shots while still providing adequate power. Love the price and everything other than the poor cylinder latch/release design.

    I have a charter arms bulldog in 44 special, 2.5” mat stainless finish. It’s timing is ok and does not shave lead or anything. Shoots about 3” low right at 10 yards, good enough for carry and I do carry it.

    Bentman,

    I see you 're a new member here...........Welcome to The Marlin Owners Forum..............

    Re: Charter Arms...............I'm not familiar with the Pug, but I owned a Charter Arms Undercover model back in the '80's

    I thought it was a good solid revolver for EDC, and mine was quite reliable, too...................Just didn't have the finer finish of the S&W's.......

    You both should make your issues known to the Customer Service people at Charter Arms..............They will certainly have interest in making new Charter Arms customers/owners happy.

    I bought a Charter Arms "Pitbull" in .45acp a few weeks ago.
    It's fit and finish is definitely not up to S&W levels, but at almost half the price of a S&W, it is a very nice revolver.
    And it doesn't need moon clips!

    My only complaint is that it has a sharp edge in front of the top of the trigger that I have to be a little careful of after firing it.
    Other than that, no complaints!

    After I took these pics, I pit some bright orange nail polish on the top of the front sight blade.

    Very nice!!

    You might be able to polish that sharp edge down a bit if that spot doesn't show too badly.

    Welcome to MO from Midocoast Maine. How about posting some pictures of your Pug? We all like a little eye candy.
