Made from an aircraft-grade aluminum frame and steel parts, the 12-ounce, 5-shot Undercover Lite Revolver has a 2-inch barrel for effortless concealed carry in multiple carry positions. The spurred hammer is easy to cock and the finger-grooved rubber grip, along with the ergonomically designed trigger, provides a firm, natural grip for solid control during a quick draw. The three-point cylinder lock greatly enhances cycle reliability by locking in the cylinder as the cartridge lines up with the barrel.
Note: Although the gun is crafted to handle +P (overpressure) rounds, the manufacturer recommends standard velocity .38 Special, as +P rounds fired from barrels less than 4 in length cause greatly increased recoil and more difficult follow-up shots.
The founder of Charter Arms began with a vision to craft an affordable, reliable handgun. After Charter Arms was founded in 1964, the company changed the landscape of personal protection when the company crafted the lightest steel framed revolver in the world. Featuring the fewest moving parts and a hammer block system that protected against unintentional discharges, The Undercover” revolver met the founder’s vision and has been trusted by shooters ever since. All Charter Arms firearms are completely manufactured in Connecticut from American parts and feature a lifetime warranty.
