poor quality firearm, tolerances between the cylinder and the forcing cone are too tight. The gun will lock up as soon as it gets hot. You get what you pay for.

after receiving my Charter Arms .22 i put 150 rounds for a function test. Using Federal .22lr (not the most reliable) I found the single action trigger to be quite good. The double action was a little gritty. I have now put about 1000 rounds through the r

Bought it for the long double action to practice trigger control. Serves that purpose well but nothing more. Very unrefined and feels unfinished. I like to buy American made but this is an example of why we opt for foreign.
