EAA Bounty Hunter .44 Magnum 7 1/2" Blue/Case Colored 
by Charles P
Date Added: Tuesday 25 September, 2012
First, it's important to understand that this revolver is the Big Bore Bounty Hunter with 7 1/2" barrel, blued with case hardened frame in .44 mag. It has a transfer bar safety so it is safe to load all six rounds, rather then the traditional 5 with an empty chamber.
I recently purchased one because of the great price and because of the .44 mag option, expecting to tweak a few things as needed. This is my experience so far.
First, this gun is no lightweight. It is hefty and built to shoot all modern magnum and .44 special loads. My gun locks up tight! Tolerances, as well as, fit and finish are very good except for the ejector shroud (more about that in a moment.). The grips are also longer then those on most SAAs, but I find them comfortable when shooting. I have already made replacements just for fun, but they are not necessary.
My gun groups very well, surprisingly so, although it shoots a bit to the left..The range officer at my range was very impressed. While the distributor EAA doesn't like it, I only shoot my own mild to moderate reloads and they do very well indeed.
Many people complain about the heavy trigger pull, but mine is just fine (not a target trigger, but crisp and easy to manage.) If you want a lighter pull for your gun Wisner makes an inexpensive replacement mainspring and trigger spring.
Now the cons.... The ejector shroud was roughly made and sometimes would catch the ejector rod when all the way back. Two minutes with a jewelers file fixed the problem and now the ejector works slick as a whistle. Also, during my first 100 rounds I had a few light primer strikes. So I cleaned very well, tightened all the screws (some were loose) and now, problem solved.
All in all, I really like this revolver. If not for the ejector shroud, I would have rated the highest score. This is not a cheap gun. Overall it is well made and heavily made. Interestingly, I have found that I enjoy shooting single-handed the most. Feels like a piece of history. I have no hesitancy suggesting this gun to anyone on a limited budget who wants a big bore saa. You may need to tweak a few things, but the fixes are cheap and easy for even the fumble fingered.
