Like its revolutionary 327 cubic-inch Chevrolet hot motor model namesake introduced in 1962 the .327 Federal Magnum round is a real hotrod too. Charter Arms new Patriot is the industry’s first snub nose revolver chambered for this potent round.

Designed for legal conceal-carry, Charter Arms Patriot features:
* 6-shot capacity and a 2.2-inch barrel
* Slick target front ramp and groove channel fixed sights.
* Full rubber grips
* Reduced recoil impulse (20-25 percent less than the .357 Magnum)
* 22.5-ounce weight
Or
* 6-shot capacity and a 4-inch barrel
* Target ramp sight
* Adjustable rear sights
* Full rubber grips
* 25-ounces weight

Charter Arms Patriot 2.2-inch barrel conceal carry model is ideal for self defense with Federal’s 85-grain low recoil Hydra-Shok round which, based on Factory ammo. specs. for a 31/2 inch bbl. should yield about 1250-1280 fps from the 2.2 Patriot. The Charter Arms Patriot will safely chamber and fire the .32 H & R Magnum round as well as others in the .32 center fire family.

Built on Charter Arm’s robust and popular .44 Special Bulldog frame the Patriot’s 8-groove barrel (unique to Charter Arms) makes for accurate target shooting and improved pressure holding lower resistance bullet deforming velocities over conventional 4- and 6-groove barrels.

MSRP: 2.2-inch model $425.00, 4-inch model with adjustable sights is also only $425.00 MSRP.

While supplies last, the first 2000 Charter Arms Patriots are also shipped (no extra cost) with a matching, clip mount Kershaw Scallion 21/4 inch 420 HC stainless-steel blade, grey anodized aluminum handle folding knife with Charter .327 engraved into the handle. Price of a like Kershaw knife is $49.95.
