By its build alone, you can already see that the Bulldog is no ordinary revolver. The purpose of the Bulldog was to offer big performance in a small, compact frame, and Charter knocked it outta the park. The big bore .44 Special handgun may be one of the heaviest hitting out there, but you’d be shocked to see how easily it handles.
The .44 Special cartridge is a good choice for a Bulldog revolver. The .44 Special, introduced in 1907, was intended as a mild and accurate big-bore cartridge. The .45 Colt was the man stopper and the .44-40 the outdoors cartridge. Attempts to “hot rod” the .44 Special have worn out many good revolvers.

When former Ruger employee Doug McClenahan designed the Charter Arms Bulldog in 1973 for his new company, Charter Arms, it was a game changer. Designed with a one piece frame for a stronger and more reliable firearm, the Bulldog was also chambered for the potent .44 Special round.
