Charter Arms 327 Fed. Mag. Snubnose Revolver Debuts at NRA Annual Meeting
Like its revolutionary 327 cubic-inch Chevrolet hot motor model namesake introduced in 1962 the .327 Federal Magnum round is a real hotrod too. Charter Arms new Patriot is the industry's first snubnose revolver chambered for this potent round.
Designed for legal conceal-carry, Charter Arms Patriot features 6-shot capacity and a 2.2-inch barrel, slick target front ramp and groove channel fixed sights.
The second variation comes with a 4-inch barrel, target ramp sight and adjustable rear sights, and it too is chambered for 6-rounds.
"We feel the .327 Federal Magnum is an excellent self defense round, and the light weight and low price point coupled with our first 2,000 production promotion program makes a very attractive purchase," said Charles Brown of MKS Supply, marketer of Charter Firearms.
Federal's 85-grain low recoil Hydra-Shok round should yield about 1250-1280 fps from the 2.2-inch-barrel Patriot.
The all steel 2.2-inch Patriot weighs in at 22.5-ounces. Price for the 2.2-inch model No. 73270 is $425.
