Windicator .357

Folks, anyone own one of these EAA 2" barrel revolvers? Heard it's a pretty good shooter from a colleague just recently and for the price, seems decent? Any comments?

I don't have one, but a former coworker bought one a couple of years ago. He really enjoyed it but he is not a gun guy. He was looking at buying one of the Detective Special look alikes from Armscor and I talked him into spending a little more but the best I could talk him into was the Windicator. Didn't want to spend the money for an SP101 or S&W. Before he retired and I lost touch he had put a couple hundred rounds through it and liked it. I have no idea how they would hold up long term.

Thanks Ron. Used to have this great Taurus 85 in.38 and loved it. Looking to shoot a .357 on a small scale and throw .38s in for informal plinking.

I'm also wondering on these. I see a couple for sale locally in 38 special. The reviews I read are mixed. Anyone have one or have shot them?

I never shot one. The examples I handled seemed fair.

I have one. I have only had it for a short time. It shoots great and is very well built. It is surprisingly heavy for such a small gun. I have a few other revolvers, but I am far from an expert from this area. All I can say is so far it has been well worth the $259 bucks I paid for it new.

I have up close and personal experience with two of them. Both had so so triggers and both were shot loose and out of time in a little over 1k rounds.

I would pass.

I use one as a pocket gun. Its' heavy, which means you'll need a good belt, but that weight helps soak up the recoil of a .357 mag. It's fairly basic, but it gets the job done. Just don't get the .38 only model. I hear they use much poorer quality metals on that one.

Have owned the 4" .357. Great value. The Germans do great things with steel!
