  • Picked up a Charter Arms Bulldog .44Spl

    Bought an older model Charter Arms Bulldog .44 3" last week. $240 out the door.......not too shabby.

    Finish is a bit rough with surface rust, but the lockup is tight and the chambers and bore are bright and clean.

    Picked up a set of Herrett's checkered walnut grips that I'll cut down into a boot grip configuration. I'll also bob the hammer.

    Thinking of having the front sight removed, the barrel cut back to just after "BULLDOG" and front sight re-soldered.......or a new front sight installed. Maybe a tritium bead.

    Then, what finish to apply............?

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

        You obviously don't appreciate a cool, old school firearm when it's in front of you.

            I have always wanted one of those and wanted to do pretty much the same thing to it.

                    I was gonna hunt for the 3 little parts that I launched, but once I saw it was gonna be less than $40, it wasn't worth the trouble.
