Charter Arms announced the “new” classic .44 Bulldogs will be shipping in September 2010. Â Modeled on the old-style Bulldogs, the new .44 Special revolvers will feature a 3″ tapered barrel, exposed extractor, and checkered walnut grips. Â Finish will be a high-gloss blue. Â The hammer will be exposed, and the cylinder will hold five of the big-bore .44 Special loads.
The image to the right is of an original .44 Bulldog. Â Photos of the new revolver have not yet been released by Charter Arms.
MSRP is $521.00 and the model number will be 34431 for those interested in placing an early order. Â The rep I spoke with said the new guns are in production now, so delivery should be on-time.
