Charter Arms Pathfinder .22lr (original model)

Hi Everyone:

I found a Charter Arms Pathfinder .22lr (original older model) at my LGS, in very good condition (no rust or scratches) priced at $199.00. I plan to use it to teach students attending NRA Basic Pistol Safety course. I like my students to show proficiency handling .22 cal revolver and semiautomatic pistol (Ruger SR22) before introducing larger caliber pistols at the range.

I have read mixed reviews on Charter Arms firearms, but think older models were built well. I would appreciate comments from anyone who has owned this same nice little revolver. The revolver looks just like the one found via this link...

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

Yes, the older ones have better QC/should be a great shooter. If you just search older QC on Charter they seem to be much better than newer stuff.

Since all CA gripframes were created equal, the Combat BullDog or square Target Grips are easily switched out for those small carry grips.

I have the Combat BD grips on my 1970's Pathfinder, and replaced the issue rubber bumbers on my 2008 Stainless Pathfinder with 70's square Target Grips.
