Charter Arms Pathfinder With 4" Barrel

I just got this press release, and thought I'd pass it along:

DAYTON, OHIO­­—Charter Arms introduces the new 4” barrel, 6-shot Pathfinder to their extensive line of quality revolvers. Available in .22 Long Rifle or .22 Magnum, the new Pathfinder features a stainless finish and full-sized grips. Built on the same frame as the popular 2” barrel model, the new pathfinder is an excellent choice for shooters who are looking for a lighter caliber revolver for target shooting and maintaining proficiency.

Charles Brown of MKS Supply, the exclusive marketer for Charter Arms said, “The new 4” barrel Pathfinder has the look and feel of a larger caliber revolver but offers the economy and comfort of the popular .22 LR and .22 Magnum calibers. Its front target sight and square-notch rear sight provide a crisp clean sight picture for improving accuracy. Whether you like punching the center out of targets or popping tin cans on a Saturday afternoon, the 4” barrel Pathfinder will be an accurate and affordable addition to your collection.”

Charter Arms—setting the American standard in affordable personal protection. For more than 40 years, Charter Arms has maintained the tradition of craftsmanship found in Connecticut’s Gun Valley. High quality American-made and assembled, Charter Arms revolvers are available from reputable firearms distributors nationwide and carry an unconditional lifetime warranty.

It looks like it might be a fun plinker, although I'd like to see a 6" barrel on it, myself........

Did you mean 6 or 60?

Heh.

Looks like a fun shooter.

If you buy the 22 Mag can you still shoot 22LR out of it?

Don't you think a new .22 revolver these days should have at least 8-10 shots?

Here's my 2 cents worth.
Shooting 22 LR in a 22 mag is generally a bad idea. There is enough difference in chamber dimensions that you may get case splits. Don't ask me how I learned that. Then there are the differences in bore dimensions between a LR and a mag that will probably be detrimental to accuracy. That's kind of like the generally poorer accuracy of 22LR when you shoot them in a convertible revolver such as a Ruger.

Just purchased a charter arms pathfinder 22 magnum with 2 inch barrel, I'm a cop, was going to use as back up gun and let the little lady use it for home defense. Guess what, a true piece of junk. All rounds in cylinder would not fire, used three different types of ammo, All had failures. Had to cycle the cylinder, two, three, sometimes four times to get the majority of rounds to fire. Went to eject the rounds, thought I was going to have to use a jackhammer to get them out of the ejector rod assembly. Save your money and buy a COLT, SMITH, or RUGER. The worst gun purchase experience ever. I work to hard for my money for this, Charter was not going to pay for my shipping back to the factory until I threw a fit.

Bought this for Christmas...junk! Sent it back for same issues deputy dan had. Come to find out the cylinder was not milled correctly (shells stick/bind) and will not eject. Also, where the cylinder meets the barrel, there is too much gap between the two and sprays fragments (unburnt powder?). Big hassle...after 5 months, sent new pistol and same problem. Bad design? Pure crap! Need to be sued.

Own two 2" Pathfinders,22LR. When I first bought them had to deburr with file and emory cloth. Trigger would not reset on one because the trigger was slightly out of parallel with trigger well. Took a carbide scraper to one side of the trigger, and problem solved. On the other, the ejector rod movement was dragging. Oiled and cycled the ejector 500 times, and problem solved. No ftf's after 500 rounds of jhp Remington. No ejection grief. Very nice single action trigger. I'm keeping mine.(The second one is my speedloader)
