Charter Arms has been cranking out a wide
variety of finish options on their compact revolvers over
the past couple of years. Their “Pink
Lady” has proven to be very popular, hopefully with the
female population more so than the male. We have reviewed
several Charter revolvers here in the past, and I own a few of
them myself. I have depended upon Charter revolvers for many
years, whether carried in my boot
many years ago for very serious work, or when just
piddling around back in the woods, they have never let me
A few months ago, we introduced a limited
production “Gunblaster” pair of Charter revolvers here,
with unique finishes on the 38 and 44 caliber revolvers. The
latest from Charter Arms is this new “Chic Lady”; a
variation of their “Pink lady”, but with a higher grade of
finish. The stainless steel parts on the “Chic Lady” are
highly polished, offering a bit more style and class to the
little five-shot revolver, and looks good with the pink frame
finish. The handgun wears a set of compact synthetic black
rubber grips, and is very easy to shoot. This lady weighs in at
14 ounces unloaded, has an exposed hammer that is easy to cock
for single-action shooting, and has a barrel that is just
slightly under two inches in length. The barrel/cylinder gap
measures just four one-thousandths of an inch. The double-action
pull is smooth, with a pull weight of just barely over ten
pounds, and a crisp single-action pull weighing just a couple of
ounces over four pounds.
The Charter “Chic Lady” is a dandy little
compact revolver, and would ride well in a pocket or purse.
There is not a lot that I can state here that I haven’t before
about Charter revolvers, but this new finish would be a good
choice for a lady who wants something a little different, with a
little more flash than what is normally found lying on a gun
store shelf. With Christmas right around the corner, the “Chic
Lady” could make for a nice gift, that is also a very useful
one, and just might be used to save the life of someone you
love. The one shown here will hopefully always be within the
reach of my wife, and with any luck, she will never need it.
