Charter Arms announced on Facebook that the company is redesigning the 9mm Pitbull revolver. The Pitbull is the company’s “rimless revolver” that is designed to shoot traditional auto cartridges without the need for moon clips.
According to the company, the new design will reduce capacity from six rounds to only five. Charter Arms stated this was done to help improve case extraction. Spent case extraction has been a problem for a number of shooters, and I will be interested to see what can be done to improve this.
The company is advising that the redesign is currently underway and should be completed in about 4-6 weeks. Current 9mm Pitbull owners will be able to send the existing guns back in August for a free upgrade.
