Taurus

I'm not a great fan of Taurus, but looked up their model 942, according to their catalog it could be had as a convertible, unless I'm miss reading it. Anyway all I found were the either or type, buy the 22 or the 22mag, not both cylinders. I didn't check to see if you can special order both cylinders. In the DA revolvers you had to have a separate crane as well as the other cylinder, unlike single actions that just swapped the cylinder

That model, in particular 1st Generation, would be my 1st choice. Long discontinued and a bit rare but worth keeping an eye out for. Came in several barrel lengths so you have options.



Mine is the standard long rifle model.

What length barrel are you looking for? 22 wmr loses a lot and are very loud in shorter barrels. Very good video link below.

If you don't feel you can afford a Smith, give Taurus a try.

Interesting info in the video-with the gold dot ammo I didn't see significant loss of velocity between the 4" pistol and snub, energy should be similarly reduced.

This former cop only carries a snub 9mm the Mrs. through her own choice also only carries a snub but she will alternate between a 9/.357 and wmr and I am confident she is well protected with any of the calibers .

Or get a 648, and a 617,,
then add combat grips to both,,

Buy once,, cry three times,,
(The combat grips cost almost as many tears as the gun purchase,, )

BUT, end up with UNLIMITED smiles!!

That's the approach I took a couple of months back when I got a new Model 48.

Pricey? Yes, indeed.

But it's a really nice revolver and we all know the quality is top notch. I won't be thinking, "What if?"

Just recently picked up this little revolver not my 1st choice ,but my wife was gravitated towards it and likes to shoot it so who am I to complain .It's very lightweight and extremely well made. I would have thought it was from the custom shop ,but it's not .The S&P Air Lite PD nice.

All this being said, I've carried and still have my Charter Arms Undercover 38spl, which I've owned since 1970, it's the one gun I've kept all these years over many others, including Colts and S&W's, not to mention Rugers.
The problem with the 22wmr was the boring of the cylinders after firing it was almost impossible to extract the spent cases due to poor machining.

I hate to slam them, but I feel I should relate my experience. I was really disappointed I really wanted a soft shooting pistol for when I can no longer handle my S&W 9mm shield, due to age and arthritis.

Resurrecting this thread because my friend is having problems with his Charter 2" revolver 72342 in 22wmr. My friend was a deputy in Kentucky in his younger years and was/is proficient in shooting, though he has bad essential tremors.

He bought it new and was using it as his carry gun. We took him to the range for practice. There were about four misfires out of six.

He sent the gun back to Charter who mistakenly sent him back a 38 revolver weeks later. The FFL and he contacted Charter and sent the 38 back and weeks later he got his 22wmr back with a new cylinder, I think.

At the range today, there were probably two misfires out of six. Plus he said that it wasn't always working in double action, sometimes just single action.

So he's going to call them and send it back again. What would you do if you were him? Would they go as far as starting over with a new 72342?

Charter needs to fix that gun.

But just for conversation's sake, what do you mean by not working in double action? Is he having misfires in double action, or does the trigger not pull through to cock and release the hammer?
