    Default EAA .38 Special "Windicator"

    So besides the fact that it sounds like Elmer Fudd named this revolver, it seems to shoot fairly nice.

    It is the 2" barrel, chambered in .38 spcl. The papers that came with the gun do not really give any information about whether it can handle +P loads. I read on a couple other forums that some were using +P loads in these EAA revolvers with mixed results. Does anyone know for certain whether these are designed to handle +P rounds?

    I don't have a picture of mine currently, but it's basically the same as this stock image:

    I'm a diehard S&W fan when it comes to revolvers, so it's hard for me to be objective about anything else. I would try to buy a worn looking Smith revolver before I would buy a EAA/Rossi/Taurus but for a snub .38 the Windicator would probably be OK if you could get one really cheap.

    Love their imports, haven't heard anything good about their customer service.

    I actually am quite inclined to agree with you, but picked this one up brand new never fired for less than MSRP, so not complaining too much.

    Doesn't sound Elmer Fudd-ish to me

    I not a moderator, but I can easily Chekov the list of rules you are violating by taking this discussion off topic...

    Does EAA just import? Who makes these? I am seeing them a lot cheaper then I have ever seen a used S&W (that was operational).

    I'm not tempted (yet) but I am an interested party.

    I think all EAA does is import. They also import the Witness semi auto pistols.

    ...and the one of those that I have had is Tanfoglio made in Italy. Good gun with a few fit issues.

    My only problem with those (EAA Witness CZ clones) is that real CZs are so cheap and soooo well made. 10mm is the only thing that drove me away from maminka .

    Originally born as the "Vindicator", EAA was sued by another company (don't remember who) that already had the title tied up. Quickest fix was to make it the Windicator. Personally, I thought it was a pretty sharp recovery.

    I have one that is .357. I found info on the web says it is made by Walther. Imported by EAA. Mine shoots as good as any 2"bbl revolver I have ever had. I have had both S&W and Colt. The only problem I have with the Windicator is it is a bit bulky for a CCW.

    I looked at some at a gun show about 4 years ago and was impressed with the quality they seem to have. They were marked made in germany. I didn't buy one but I wished I had cause at the time they were less than $150. To answer your question I personally wouldn't use any ammo that wasn't marked on the barrel or instructions.

    In my instruction book, pg. 4, it says that +P ammo may be dangerous and will void the warranty.
