Charter Arms Pathfinder 72224 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Gun Tests Grade: C. This gun needed an adjustable rear sight like what we found on the Taurus. it shot accurate enough groups, but they were 6 inches low. Yes, the sight can be filed to get more elevation, but while you’re at that, go ahead and knock some metal off the hammer, since it interferes with the sight picture. We also wanted more capacity. We liked the big grip.

The Charter’s crane-to-frame-fit showed larger joints than on the Smith and Taurus guns also, where the barrel met the frame wasn’t blended well. The .674-inch-diameter barrel made the gun muzzle heavy, our testers said.
