Charter's All-American .22 Pathfinder can turn a few tin cans into an afternoon of fun. The Pathfinder is a great introductory revolver for the novice shooter. It has the look, feel and weight of a higher-caliber revolver, allowing you to gain proficiency while using relatively inexpensive .22 ammo. The Pathfinder's barrel is threaded into the frame for more strength. A one-piece barrel/lug/sight has eight grooves and a button-rifled barrel that seals gasses better for less bullet deformation and better accuracy at higher velocities. The strong frame locks the cylinder yoke in place and combines with the Charter Arms exclusive 3-point cylinder lock-up for top-notch durability. The ergonomically-designed trigger does not pinch the shooter's trigger finger. Recoil-friendly black rubber grips.
