Charter Arms Introduces 9mm Rimless Revolver PITBULL

Shelton, CT., - July 31, 2012 Charter Arms, manufacturer of American made affordable and reliable revolvers for over 48 years, has added the new 9mm Rimless Revolver to their popular PITBULL series. Since its inception in 1902 by Georg Luger, the 9mm has been the world's most popular and widely used NATO cartridge favored by Military and LE agencies.

The 9mm Rimless Revolver PITBULL uses the same unique rimless cartridge extractor assembly system as the Charter Arms .40 cal Rimless Revolver. A dual coil spring assembly located in the extractor allows insertion and retention of a 9mm cartridge in each chamber of the revolver's cylinder. After firing, the shooter can easily eject the spent cartridges for immediate reloading.

Nick Ecker, President of Charter Arms, added, "Shooting enthusiasts will appreciate owning an American made revolver in 9mm and finding ammo is readily available and affordable. With its reduced recoil, the PITBULL is user friendly for even the beginning shooter."
