Charles Daly Classic Single Action

     Notes: This revolver is designed to be in the style of the single-action revolvers of the Old West, but is not a replica or reproduction of any particular weapon; it is described as a “21st century single-action.”  The revolver is actually built by the Italian firm of Fratelli Pietta, which is known for its reproductions of famous Old West weapons.  It is sole exclusively, however, by Charles Daly in the US.  This design is capable of firing both blackpowder and modern propellant loads.  The Classic Single Action is built using all-new machinery and using the latest manufacturing methods.  The revolver is all-steel (except for the grip plates) and comes in a case/hardened/blued finish or a stainless steel finish.   The action is described as silky smooth.  The Classic Single Action is a bit light in front, so groups can wander, but all in all, it is an average-accuracy weapon.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This revolver does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Charter Arms Bulldog

     Notes: This is a lightweight but powerful backup pistol favored by many police officers. They can be found all over the US in the hands of civilians and police officers; a 3” barrel .38 Special version is carried by the character of Lenny Briscoe in the TV series Law and Order.  Large amounts of exports were also made.  The Bulldog is essentially a larger version of the Undercover.

     The Police Bulldog was a limited-edition version chambered for a limited number rounds and with different barrel choices.  Barrels were 3.5 or 4 inches, and are either bull barrels or standard barrels.  The Police Bulldog could have a standard or a spurless “pocket hammer.  Finishes were either blued or satin-finish stainless steel, but later a Crimson Bulldog finish was added, with a red frame.

     The Bulldog Pug is a snubby pocket version, with a 2.5-inch barrel, a shrouded ejector rod, and a wide trigger.  The hammer could be standard or a spurless “pocket hammer.”  The Bulldog Tracker is chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge, has a three choices of barrel length, and has adjustable sights and bigger grips.  It is meant to be a “pack gun,” for emergency use against wilderness creatures.

     The Target Bulldog is essentially the same as the 4-inch barrel version of the Bulldog chambered for .44 Special, but has a micrometer-adjustable rear sight.  It is the same for game purposes.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: The .45ACP version was made available to the USAF as an emergency issue to Air Force Reserve Combat Security Squadrons.

Charter Arms Dixie Derringer

     Notes: The Dixie Derringer is a sort of an enlarged, revolver version of a derringer – small, lightweight, and designed specifically for concealed carry and short-range defensive combat.  Built entirely of stainless steel, the Dixie Derringer has a 1.125-inch barrel and an extremely short-pull trigger, with no trigger guard.  It does not have the transfer bar safety that virtually all revolvers have these days, but it does have a hammer-block manual safety.  Since it is a .22 rimfire weapon, it has decent cylinder capacity despite its small size – and also a loud report and good muzzle blast that will discourage any second or third assailant that may be present, or scare someone should you fire a warning shot.  The frame is a solid piece of work and the grip plates are of hard rubber over an ergonomic grip shape.  Finish is matte stainless steel.  Three versions of the Dixie Derringer are available: one designed for .22 Long Rifle, one for .22 Magnum, and one with a cylinder designed to fire either one interchangeably.  For game purposes, the version designed to fire both is identical to the .22 Magnum version, other than being able to fire both cartridges.

Charter Arms Mag Pug

    Notes: The Mag Pug is a snubbie revolver designed to fire powerful cartridges.  It is similar to the Undercover series (see below), but built heavier to handle magnum cartridges.  The barrel is slightly longer than that of the Undercover at 2.2 inches, and the extra length is ported to help fight recoil.  The Mag Pug comes in double-action and DAO versions, and in the same finishes as the Undercover: brushed stainless, brushed blued, polished blued, red/stainless, red/black, pink/stainless, black/stainless, and a black/gold tone.  They have neoprene ergonomic rubber grips.  In addition to the standard model, a Target model is also made, with a 4-inch barrel and an adjustable rear sight.

Charter Arms Off-Duty

     Notes: The Off-Duty was designed as a backup gun for police officers or for them to carry when off-duty.  It is lightweight, simple to use and maintain, and was inexpensive in real life terms.  It is a very small, lightweight revolver that is easy to carry. 

     Charter Arms re-iterated the Off Duty into a new variant in 2013; the new version has a frame and barrel shroud of aircraft-grade aluminum and the revolver is even lighter; despite the light construction, the new Off Duty is capable of firing +P ammunition.  Many components are milled out of a single piece of metal; for example, the barrel shroud, underlug, and front sight are a single piece of metal.  The pinching of the trigger finger that was once common has been virtually eliminated by reshaping of the grip and trigger guard.  Stainless steel components can have a high-polish or brushed finish.

Charter Arms Pathfinder

     Notes: This is a .22 Long Rifle revolver built on the same pattern as the Bulldog.  This is mainly used as a plinking weapon (informal shooting as targets such as cans or bottles), but is also used for varmint hunting or the killing of pests such as rats.  The Pathfinder was originally produced with a 3-inch barrel, but later 2-inch and 6-inch barrel versions were added.  The 2-inch barrel version replaced the .22 Undercover.  The 6-inch barrel version has adjustable target sights.  A .22 Magnum version was also produced later on, and options included larger grips.  The Target Pathfinder also has adjustable sights, and a high-quality 4-inch barrel and all-stainless steel construction with full rubber grips; later, a Target Pathfinder Magnum was added to the line, along with a Target Pathfinder that could chamber either .22 cartridge identical to the Target Pathfinder Magnum except for this feature).

Charter Arms Patriot

     Notes: One of Charter Arms’ newest revolvers, the Patriot is similar to the Mag Pug in design, but is chambered for the new .327 Federal round.  It offers less recoil than the Mag Pug, but has less recoil and weight, with the same barrel length (2.2 inches) and a ported barrel, and it still has decent punch. Finishes are limited to brushed stainless steel and a red frame (the Crimson Patriot).  The trigger action is DA/SA – and that first trigger pull has a heavy weight, well over 10 pounds. The sights are asid by some to be poorly-designed, primarily due to their dull, non-reflective color used on both the V-notch rear sights and the front sight blade. Fit and finish, however, are generally regarded as excellent. A Target Patriot, with a 4-inch barrel and an adjustable rear sight, is also made.  Charter Arms sells each of these revolvers with a free Kershaw Scallion folding knife, but this is not included in the price below.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: The Patriot does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Charter Arms Undercover

     Notes: This is a small pocket revolver for use by undercover police and in personal defense.  It has a short, heavy barrel and chunky frame that is easy to hold.  The weapon has a light alloy frame that keeps weight down.  However, the short barrel and light weight mean that the Undercover is not good beyond short range.  The standard barrel is 2 inches, but a 3-inch barrel model was also made.  Standard caliber was .38 Special, but several rare variants were made for other calibers.  They could have the standard-size walnut or neoprene grips, or enlarged grips for larger hands.

     The Police Undercover was a smaller version of the Undercover, designed for undercover police work.  Normally chambered in .38 Special, a rare variant was also chambered for .32 H&R Magnum.  The Police Undercover could have a standard (exposed) hammer or a spurless “pocket hammer.”  They had a blued or stainless steel finish, with neoprene or walnut grips.

     The Undercoverette is a version of the Police Undercover with a smaller butt, designed for female undercover police officers.  It was chambered only for .32 S&W Long.  It replaced the .32 Undercover until 1982, when it was discontinued.

     Current variants of the Undercover include versions with aluminum alloy frames.  These all have 2-inch barrels.  They can be found with a variety of finishes, including brushed stainless, red/stainless, red/black, pink/stainless, black/stainless, and a black/gold tone. Those with pink finishes are typically called Pink Ladies, and those with gold tone finishes are typically called Goldfingers; a version with a lavender finish is also made, called the Lavender Lady.  Left-handed versions are also made, with the cylinder swinging out to the right instead of left; these are called Southpaw versions.  All are stressed for +P loads, but have only 2-inch barrels.  Recoil is formidable due to the light weight, but it's easy to carry.  All are identical for game purposes.

     The Undercoverette is a version of the Police Undercover with a smaller butt, designed for female undercover police officers.  It was chambered only for .32 S&W Long until late 2006, when it was offered in .32 H&R Magnum, and the original .32 Smith & Wesson Long chambering was discontinued.  Barrel length is 2 inches.  A version with a red frame is also offered, called the Crimson Undercoverette.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: The Undercoverette is not offered in .32 H&R Magnum in the Twilight 2000 timeline, nor is the Undercover Lite.
