Charter Arms Undercover

Charter Arms Undercover

Expanding a gun collection takes effort and time. With the vast amount of guns on the market, some revolvers are higher quality and more efficient than others. Keeping this mind, Charter Arms crafted some of the most beautiful American-made devices. Within their “Undercover” series, the Charter Arms Undercover .38 Special Revolver in Black and Stainless Steel Finish is of the most popular and most effective revolvers around.

Charter Arms put itself on the map when they crafted the Charter Arms Undercover .38 Special Revolver. Aesthetically, the Undercover .38 Special is a beautiful creation of pure stainless steel giving owners a full feeling in their hands when they shoot it. Finished with dark grey and stainless steel, this has become one of the most classic looking guns within the undercover series.

Unique to its nature, the .38 Special is one of the most effective firearms for any gun owner. The barrel of the gun is threaded into the frame, giving the shooter a more power shot with less recoil. Adding to the power as well as the accuracy of the gun, the barrel is constructed of an eight groove button that reduces bullet deformation and gives it a cleaner shot. The less deformed a bullet is, the more powerful and accurate the shot becomes for the shooter.

Weighing in at an even 16 oz., this lightweight gun is great for shooters looking for a backup weapon or a small, compact defensive firearm. This gun is crafted for the use by both beginner and advance shooters, as many of the modifications were created to enhance the shooter’s experience.

Such modifications include fewer internal parts than other revolvers, limiting jamming and other errors. The .38 Special was also developed without a cylinder stop, giving shooters a more pleasurable experience and less hassle with the reloading of the gun. As a last modification, the trigger was redesigned to avoid pinching on the shooter’s finger.

While customer complaints on this weapon are minimal, one feature of the gun that owners did not like was the 5-round capacity. Shooters wanted more shooting capability from each round, and with just five shots it slowed down the shooting capabilities significantly. Otherwise, this gun seemed very solid to gun owners and many shooters would recommend this gun to another person.

Shooters looking for an enhanced shooting experience with a revolver, investing in the Charter Arms Undercover Revolver .38 Special with dark grey and stainless steel finish will be a worthwhile experience. Lightweight and compact, owners can easily carry this gun around in a concealable manner. This gun is also perfect for women looking for a defensive weapon that won’t be difficult to handle.

Bottom line – the Charter Arms Undercover Revolver .38 Special is one of the most convenient revolvers on the market today. Gun owners and shooters looking for a reliable defensive weapon, this .38 revolver will be an ideal selection.

The Ruger SR9 Pistol

Ruger SR9

Ruger released the Ruger SR9 pistol in October 2007 as the first striker fired polymer framed pistol, which is really a clone of the Kimber KDP. The Ruger SR9 pistol itself is made in the USA but the magazines are from Mec-Gar in Brescia, Italy.

But Ruger later recalled the original Ruger SR9 in April 2008 when “under certain conditions, it can fire if dropped with the manual safety off and a round in the chamber.” Ruger immediately completely changed the assembly process of their guns trigger, which is now a copy of the Glock.

Ruger also promised to also fix/change any gun parts for the gun’s lifetime and as one gun sports enthusiast noted, “All this past ambivalence has changed, in a big way, with the current production Ruger SR9

If before the Ruger triggers are just described as adequate (at best) to inadequate, this 9mm has a Ruger style of the Glock “Safe Action” trigger. “The Ruger SR9 is striker fired with the same trigger pull weight every shot.“ As one gun enthusiast reports, his Lyman digital trigger gauge shows that the SR9 breaks right at five pounds, “the same pull weight as a standard Glock trigger is supposed to be.”

The 2011 version of the Ruger SR9 is “simply outstanding,” as described by one gun collector.

The Ruger SR9 numerous modern safety features includes:

  • 1911-style ambidextrous manual safety,
  • internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker,
  • trigger safety,
  • magazine disconnect, plus
  • a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator.

The Ruger SR9 also comes in compact form, the SR9C. The SR9C compact pistol’s grip is as wide as the full-sized SR9 at 1.27”. It comes with two 10-round magazines. It has a high-visibility 3-Dot sight. The front portion of the pistol’s side is serrated so it is easier to manipulate the slide and press check the chamber.

Protection need not be all about function. Aesthetics play a part, as well.

One gun owner exclaimed that the Ruger SR9 is good-looking. The glass-filled frame is made of polymer. The frame has a M1913 rail built in front for mounting a tactical light or laser sight. The slide is made up of stainless steel. It also has a reversible rubber back strap.

“The SR9 is a dream to shoot and easier on the eyes than some of the tacti-cool offerings out there.” another gun owner described.

All those who have fired thousands of rounds from the Ruger SR9 report that it performs well for a double stack pistol. It is “built like a tan,” with extremely solid construction. The price, and the adjustable sights are something to be enthusiastic about. “Superb value,” as most gun owners pointed out.

Accessories for the SR9C are widely available, including Crimson Trace laser grips, which are actually the LG-449 Laserguard.

Sig Sauer P220 10mm

Sig Sauer p220 10mm

Well it looks like Sig Sauer is finally going to take the plunge into the world of 10mm.  Recently announced on sigforum.com was the news that many Sig fans and all 10mm fans have been waiting for.  Sometime late in  2015 or perhaps early in 2016, Sig Sauer will be releasing three versions of their already wildly popular P220 but in a 10mm offering.   Initial reports have the three offerings as follows:

  • P220 Stainless Elite 10mm, standard length slide and barrel, traditional DA/SA trigger
  • P220 Match Elite 10mm, stainless, long slide, 5″ barrel, traditional DA/SA trigger
  • P220 SAO 10mm, stainless, long slide, 5″ barrel, single action only trigger

 

With limited manufacturer offerings in 10mm today (Glock, CZ, Colt, EAA, and Para), the addition of the Sig Sauer p220 10mm should hopefully cement the 10mm as “here to stay” caliber.   This hard hitting multifunctional round had gained a substantial “cult” following around the world but seeing it become more mainstream would not only help with the availability of the round but it might also bring down that high price which can be a turn off for a lot of shooters.

Will Sig expand the 10mm to other popular models like the P227 and the P320?   With all the  pleas on the forums to do so I’m sure Sig Sauer is listening but only time will tell…
