The seven-shot PROFESSIONAL revolver is chambered in .32 H&R Magnum and is billed as “a true fighting handgun.” Eschewing polymer, Connecticut-based Charter Arms has engineered their newest revolver to tip the scales at 22-ounces, unloaded, while still sporting contoured walnut grips as well as a stainless steel frame, cylinder, and barrel. The metal surfaces are coated in a Blacknitride+™ process characterized as “indestructible” by the company.

Like several new revolvers pitched for the concealed carry market, the PROFESSIONAL uses a 3-inch barrel with a full underlug. However, the choice of caliber for the new gun is relatively uncommon. While Ruger currently makes a .32 H&R revolver, it is a New Model Single-Six, styled more for cowboy action shooting than every day carry. Smith & Wesson produced the Model 432 and 631 in the light .32 Mag but both of those revolvers have been out of production for some time and can be hard to find.

“The .32 H&R Magnum caliber has always been an underrated caliber that’s ideal for concealed carry and well-suited for the range,” said Charter Arms President Nick Ecker in a statement.

The company reportedly worked with the staff of Concealed Carry Magazine to help develop the PROFESSIONAL. “This is a true fighting revolver,” said Kevin Michalowski, the publication’s executive editor. “I could not be happier working with Nick Ecker and the entire team at Charter Arms to see this project come to life.”

The revolver, which includes a Green LitePipe front sight, is set to retail for $438. It will be unveiled at the 2019 Concealed Carry Expo on May 17-19 held in Pittsburgh.
