Charter Arms has announced the introduction of the world's first specifically chambered .40-caliber revolver with its Pitbull .40 Cal. Rimless Revolver.

The Pitbull .40 Cal. Rimless has a 2.3-inch barrel and five-shot capacity, and is marketed as the ideal backup handgun for law enforcement, since it can use the same ammunition as many law enforcement standard sidearms, .40 S&W. Previous complications of a .40 S&W-chambered revolver have been overcome by the use of Charter's rimless cartridge extractor, which has a dual coil spring assembly located in the extractor that allows insertion and retention in each chamber of the revolver cylinder. This allows for reliable extraction, even for rimless cartridges.

The Pitbull has an overall length of 6 3/4 inches and weighs 20 ounces, with a fixed frame rear sight and a ramped front sight and standard hammer. A double-action only hammer is available upon request. For additional information on the Pitbull .40 Cal. Rimless Revolver, please visit the Charter Arms website.
