Charter Arms UC38Spl.
This is my Charter Arms Undercover 38Spl. This is the very first handguns Mfg. by Charter Arms. Bought New in 1979 Paid $135
Just added the Pachmayr Grips making it usable as a backup defence handgun.
I've owned several. Nice guns. I always thought the yoke assembly looked weak, but I never had any problems with it.
Didn't have chamfered chambers, so loading/reloading was sticky. I took about half a jillionth of an inch off the sharp edges with a case deburring tool; that fixed that.
The cylinder latch is sharp, though, and used to draw blood from my thumb.
I wouldn't hesitate to carry an Undercover for self-defense. Good basic gun.
Nice gun, I've got a Bulldog in 44spcl that I like a lot.
I bounced this over from general semi-auto to the revolver section....
Carried several different ones over the years. I liked the the .44 Bulldog better but thats just me. Never had one fail on me.
