  • Charter Arms Bulldog .44 Special


The Charter Arms Bulldog is one of the classic revolvers! Chambered in the big bore .44 Special, this handgun means business.

The Bulldog features a 2.5" barrel, fixed front sight, and wide notch rear sight. Unloaded, the Bulldog weighs 21 ounces, which means it is light enough to carry all day, but has just enough heft that it won't beat you up when you go to the range. Rubber grips also help tame the Bulldog.

Known for its rugged reliability and stopping power, Charter’s Bulldog is a versatile revolver for personal or home protection. This safe, reliable revolver is powerful enough for serious home protection, but has the size and functionality for effective concealed carry!

Customer Reviews

STILL EXELENT - Review by Smokie
I bought a new Bulldog for concealed carry purposes. The new charter arms are as good as the original ones. I have a 3" bulldog I purchased about 30 years ago. The new 2.5" bulldog and my older 3 ' should serve me well for conceal carry. Charter Arms old or new build quality revolvers. I have never had the older 3" fail me, and I haven't had any problems with the newer one. (Posted on 3/23/14)
Good Quality / Unique Handgun - Review by Drifter
I owned the 4 inch target version of this gun for many years. It was fun to shoot and light and compact enough to carry concealed. It packed a punch and I had no doubt that the .44 cal semi wad-cutter hollow points would do the trick if ever I needed the trick done.

It does take about 100-200-rounds of target practice with this weapon in order to get accustomed to the kick (considerably more than a .38), but easy to manage with practice. (Posted on 6/25/13)
Good gun - Review by jk
Good gun, but ammo is pricey and hard to get. I'm going back to .38 because of ammo issues. The gun itself is a good buy for the money and the warranty is outstanding. I sent mine back for some issues after five years of regular carry and monthly range time. It was repaired in a week and better than new when I got it back. Can't argue with that.

I love this gun - Review by Big Dog
I love the power this gun has to offer. The distinct length along with hard-punching power, it just does'nt get any better than that (Posted on 10/6/11)
