Bought one in downtown Reno, NV Jan. 2013. Right across N. Virginia St. the from the Silver Legacy. Paid just under $300.
Moved to Vegas in March 2013 and Metro swiped it from me because I didn’t have local carry paperwork. Apparently Las Vegas thinks it’s so special that the NV state issued blue card doesnt suffice for concealed carry down there.
It was my 1st handgun, my only handgun. I left for CT in 2014, where the gun laws are a bit more lax.
I’m buying another one.
I love my 2 inch blued EAA Windicator 357 Mag revolver. However, I did have an issue with the bluing coming off the front of the cylinder after firing 200 rounds of standard 357 Mag and 38 Spl FMJ. EAA charges about $20 to ship the weapon back to them plus they require it to be shipped from a FFL Dealer. The latter charged me another $22 for their services. I got the gun back in three weeks which wasnt too bad but I am not a fan of EAA Support. They hardly ever pick up the phone when you call them; they do not return phone calls; and their emails are short and vague. The shipping fee to send the fire arm back and their lack luster customer support is the reason I did not give the gun five stars.
I have had a blued 2” for over 20 years. It is my go to carry. I have carried a combat commander & a model 66 4” over the years. I love them both but this is small concealable and shoots dead nuts. Anyone who bad mouth’s this firearm is delusional. If you need more than 6 shots then you either cannot shoot straight or you have much bigger problems than a sidearm can resolve. Highly recommend.
Bought the 2 inch blued 357 mag Windicator about six weeks ago. Fired 200 rounds, combination of 357 and 38 Spl, through it with no issues. Windicator is a pleasure to shoot. It absorbs the 357 recoil better than my Kimber K6S DASA which cost twice as much. Gun is accurate. I am very happy with my purchase.

Bought the 4″ Windicator in 357 Mag about 2 years ago. Best revolver ever. Very solid and on target right out of the box. Have owned Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers over the years. This one is definitely on a par with my Anaconda as far as sturdiness is concerned, and it is a joy to shoot.
Just got it yesterday and today put a nice range of 357, 38 and 38 wads through it. Nice gun I’m glad I’ve got it. Have the 357 with 4″ barrel. So far about 125 rds and no issues. Only issue is frt sight little hard to see with my older eyes but painted that up with orange and much better.

I’ve had two of these in 2in snub for a good 20 years ,shoot perfectly, not my carry gun by no means but I keep one in the kitchen above hutch and the other in my truck as a backup, didn’t realize the price had gone up so much, I didn’t pay over 150 each for mine

I’ve had a 2” 357 magnum in Nickel for a little over a year. I have been really impressed by it’s build quality. I replaced the grips with the wood ones from the EAA website.. They look better and feel better in my opinion. The only issue I have with this gun is the sights. In the nickel version it can be very difficult to get a sight picture on a bright sunny day.. A removable front sight would make this revolver perfect plus.
I traded an old Tokarev for my first Windicator at a gunshop over 20 years ago. I had never seen one before, but I liked the way it was built. I love SIMPLE DESIGNS on firearms, and the Windicator is about as simple as a D/A revolver can get. My first one was a used 38, and the zamac alloy frame worried me at first, and I always carried it in a case, but it became my “truck gun”. It rode under the seat, and behind the seat in every truck, and every piece of farm equipment I have and over many years, proved to be a sturdy firearm. It was second only in accuracy to a Colt Detective Special I had when I was a young man, and not by much. My first hand gun was a Ruger Single Six, and I still only shoot single action. For a 2″ wheel gun to shoot single action, a 3″ group at 10 yards offhand is impressive. A close family member kept begging till I sold it to them. I was not long buying another one. I currently have a 38, and a 357, and both are 2″ blued, and both are good hand guns. They weigh about 2 lbs. loaded, but they carry well in a shoulder holster. I can’t recomend them enough. A good gun for the money.
Came across this chambered in 38 spl used ,and for 200 bucks few years ago what a great gun. I really hope to find a eaa in another deal. Keeps nice and zero issues. 6 shot what more could you ask for out of a wheel gun thats never had any issues hitting the mark. EAA won me over with this product!

I would have given this gun 5 stars if not for the fact I got it brand new and it came out of the box with the end of the barrel jagged as if it was shortened with a hack saw? It took using a jewelers file and a lengthy time of filing along with some touch up to the bluing to make it as it should have been to begin with. The gun functions great, but EAA should be doing a little better in quality control.
Gun is great! but Very poor illustration of details in the user manual. item 770130 frame details are listed differently in every website I visited. Does anyone know if 357 magnum are made of steel frame? most websites list it as alloy frame including EAA website but it looks to me it is made of steel. Also, the user manual is outdated as it says it will not shoot +P round. Well, if it can shoot 357 magnum, it should be able to shoot 38 special +P. My guess is that the user manual was made for the alloy version of the 38 special and not for steel frames.
This is a well made revolver. The cylinder locks up tight and the trigger is smooth. German craftsmanship at its best. This gun is made to last a lifetime.
Purchased the blued 4″ model from the PX/exchange. Hefty weapon indeed, accurate and very nicely made.

I have had mine for about a year now. Not the best on double action trigger compared to my King Cobra. More along the Ruger 357. It is a nice carry size. I will say I am not happy with the Q&A. Never test fired from factory, Never cleaned from factory. In order to load rounds the first time I had to disassemble and clean all machining debris from chamber and barrel before accepting rounds. Overall it shoots well and an easy carry.

I have wanted a revolver for my personal use, and got to shoot several during my 19.5 years of military service. After months of careful researh, I have decided to buy the Weirich windacator 4 inch barrel 357/ 38 caliber , with the wooden grips and blued barrel. i will finish my reveiw
William Uhlenbrauck –
Bought a new 4” in 38 special about six years ago at Gander Mountain. A bit heavy, but that helps with the recoil and getting back on target. Great gun for the money. Last month picked up a 2” in 357 gently used at my lgs. It is also very accurate and a joy to shoot. I would recommend this line to anyone looking for a reliable revolver that’s easy on the budget too. Any plans for a 8/9 shot 22 or 5 shot 44 special? Wishful thinking on my part!
Richard Manning –
Love this revolver, but don’t like those palmar grips. The only option is the wood, which is better looking. I would like it if I could get rubber grips for it. Other than that it’s a great revolver for a great price
Owned a 2″ snub (,357)for about 12 years. Use it primarily for camping with snake load or fmj. Well made and built like a tank. It’s heafty weight makes shooting hot loads much more comfortable. Solid and comfortable shooter.
Bottom line — I love it. Thinking about a 4″ or maybe 6″ in the near future. Unbeatable value.

… great revolver/wheel gun… solid construction, good weight and balance, 2″ packs away well, 4″ for the trails and 6″ for the woods with 180GR HARDCAST = you “should” be set, lol… combat proven, simplistic design, available wood grips via EAA’s website in case you do not already know, also another rubber grip size depending on if you have large or small versions on your revolvers… they have spare parts, take a look at those… not a good pistol it is a GREAT PISTOL… 6″ is on my list… OH! and EAA has holsters as well, kydex, and yes as above poster mentioned K-Frame holster fits nice/snug…
Joseph Colombo –
I have 3 of these and have friends who also have them and sold a few when I had my store. I can only say that these firearms work and shoot great, I never received any bad feedback from any of the ones I sold or the ones my friend’s have, true strong firearm. The only thing I found was the nickel one is a little stuff to clean if you shoot a lot of rounds. But will clean very satisfied with my 357 4″
Christopher White –
It’s the first high caliber revolver I ever bought and I’m personally going to buy probably a 4-in or a 6-in. my father loves mine so much he keeps wanting me to sell but I’m probably going to get him one for his birthday can’t decide if I should go and get him a stainless model or get him the 2-in blue that I’ve got. I can’t recommend this gun enough it may be a bit on the heavy side but it’s perfect for winter carry or wilderness walk I practice shooting this thing so much one-handed that I can now easily hit targets with full load 357s I just can’t recommend this gun enough.

Shoots low, jams with some 357 mag loads, and can’t find any aftermarket accessories like grips and leather iwb holsters. I have owned one for 15 years now.
Purchased the Windicator 2″ (blue) and the stainless steel (4″) about the same time, as I recall. Both of them are sturdy and look great. The 2″ snub is in my daily carry rotation and the 4″ beast is my Sunday church carry. I sincerely appreciate the high quality build of my Windicators! Now, I am trying to find a 6″ Windicator to complete the family. Get one, you’ll be glad you did!
paul wilson –
Great little gun for the price!

I picked up a Windicator at a gun show several years ago. I really like it. The only mistake I made was letting my better half shoot it. Now, it’s HER favorite revolver. It’s solid, shoots well and is easy to conceal. Had to find another one for myself.
I bought a used snub nose for $220 back in 2014 and I must say, it’s the best value I have ever gotten when purchasing a firearm.
It’s as sturdy as could be and of course the .357 is big round. I carry it sometimes or keep it within reach at home. It’s the gun I would grab first in a sticky situation.
If you’re looking for a good .357 magnum revolver, look no further. Get one of these and with the money you save stock up on ammo.
It’s a great looking revolver and it shoots even better! They were on sale at the local big box outdoor store, (before the plague set in), so I took a look and just had to have one. I’d seen some reviews that were critical of the trigger pull but this one felt pretty good in the store. After I got it home I let my wife try it and she thinks the trigger pull is great! After some dry firing and about a hundred rounds the trigger IS great! The recoil is very manageable, (even for my wife), and it shoots right where you point it. I couldn’t be happier with it and I’m sure I’ll have another in the near future.

I purchased mine in 1987. 357 mag, 2″ barrel. Since then, it has been my daily carry, and I force myself to practice with it at least 100 rounds /year. I say force, because every shot fired gets my face slapped from the percussion. Recoil isn’t bad, but the air-compression blowback with full mag loads stings!
With over 3000 rounds through it, there is no slop or rattle anywhere, the bluing is nearly as good as new, and although there must have been missfires along the way, None come to mind except the occasional dud cartridge.
If this trips your interest, get it. You won’t get substantially better durability or build quality at any price.
My only recommendation would be IF you can pack a 4″ or 6″ barrel model, get that. Just a little bit more barrel really helps.

this is my second time owning this piece of art. did not even look at others . in 65 years of shooting, I only had one other that outshot the windicator. If you want (as i have already stated) a reliable piece of art look no further. and the price, well thats just a bonus.
Alfred L. –
This thing is awesome! I went out looking for a .38 special and came across this beautiful piece of artwork. Thanks guys!

I purchased my revolver on a whim. It turned out to be an incredible stroke of luck! It was a little stiff initially, but smoothed out with a few hundred dry fires (with snap caps) and a 150 rounds of .38 Special and .357 Magnums on the range. The DA is still a little stiff(wonder if they use the same mainspring for rim fire and center fire?).
It may be the best shooting .357 snub ever-and I have fired a LOT of .357 snubs in the last 63 years as a solider and a cop. POA and POI are so close with 158 gr loads as to be pretty much meaningless.
It takes a #10 HKS speed loader and I found it fits some S&W K frame holsters like a glove.
It is heavy but it makes firing full house magnum loads a breeze. I could find only two screws in the whole construction, wonder if I missed any?
If only they made a 9 mm cylinder…………………………………..

This is a hearty well made firearm. Solid and may be heavy to some. But well worth it. The weight also helps to reduce the recoil. At 1.9 lbs. You will know your carrying it. One of the best gun purchases I have ever made.
