So Where is Charter Arms New Rimless Revolver?
Charter Arms, Dayton, OH – -(AmmoLand.com)- Charter Arms discloses the facts behind why their new and revolutionary rimless revolver is not yet out.
Let’s talk facts and not rumors:
- The Charter Arms Rimless Revolver (CARR) is tested, patent checked, cleared and ready for production.
- Initially the first models in .40 caliber were to appear this past March with following models in .45ACP and 9mm later this year.
- BUT, since the 2008 election we don’t need to tell you what has happened with sales of firearms and ammunition in our country. Thanks to another terrific firearm salesman like President Clinton was in 1990, President Obama has pushed buying over the edge and companies are working like crazy just to keep up. This buying spree ramped firearm and ammunition demand up to astonishing levels in January 2009, and it has not slowed down.
And, that last entry is what is delaying things, here is why. Due to the incredible demand for firearms Charter is forced to stay the course by keeping dealers supplied with current model revolvers in order to meet current demand. In other words, the production line is pressed hard to fill the demand for current models. Therefore, it would be foolish to add more models at a time when just keeping up with current models is nearly impossible.
Second, it is unfair to consumers and dealers alike to come out with items you cannot produce in matching demand numbers. Currently, Charter just could not keep up if they added a whole new product line at this particular time.
Let’s be clear about what Charter Arms wanted to do initially. Needless to say, not producing the CARR this was NOT the plan when we first announced the new revolver. The 2008 election created this panic. Had the election results been different, firearm and ammunition demand and sales would not have exploded, and the new Charter Arms CARR revolvers would be in stores right now.
Bottom line, the CARR is not vaporware, there is simply no room in Charter Arm’s production line for new items. Additionally, Charter has several other new guns and models in addition to the CARR series, and those guns we won’t even discuss until things get back to normal.
We hope this helps you understand our current situation. Please spread the word and thanks to all of you for your support. By the way the NRA meetings in Phoenix expected 45,000 attendees and we heard got 64,000! Many people who never wanted or owned a firearm before are now gun owners and that all helps to support the Second Amendment specifically and protect our Constitution in general.
