Back in the 70's Mag-Na-Port made a custom conversion revolver from a Charter Arms BullDog. They called it the "Backpacker". I believe they were serialed numbered from 1 - 200. When Ken Kelly (Mag-Na-Port) showed me pictures of the backpacker, I knew I had to have one. Ken told me I would have to locate an older BullDog without the underlug on the barrel.
About a year ago I found a nice Charter Arms BullDog. It was an older model from the early 70's, and blued. I paid $200.00 for the BullDog. Then off it went to Mag-Na-Port for the conversion. A few days ago I received it back. Some of the things that were done to it was the barrel shortened to 1.75", barrel porting, eliminate the front sight, bobbed hammer, hard chrome finish, and trigger job. I will eventually have Patrick Grashorn make some Elk grips for it.
I shot 25 rounds of Winchester Silver tips through it today. Without a front if you try to aim it, the BullDog shoots all over the place. So I did point & shoot, and it worked pretty good. All this was at about 10 feet.
