EAA WINDCTR 357 2" NKL 6 shot. The price and shipping from BUD's was good. After receiving transfer from dealer (I had checked it out somewhat inside the store) I took revolver out to my car and decided to check out further. After opening the cylinder and looking down the barrell I noticed on the front of the cylinder (next to barrell) a dark discloring that appeared to be powder residue. I tried wiping it off but to no avail. I was in question as to what to do because I definitely did not want to have purchased a used gun at new prices. I decided to take the revolver out to fire it and fired 6 rounds .38 and 6 round .357. I had no problem in functionality and accuracy. I like the gun very much but definitely should have taken BUD's advice and thoroughly inspected the revolver at the dealer before the transfer. I am giving this a 4 rating due to the discoloring on the front of the cylinder.

Buds gave me a very positive buying experience. I have purchased many guns from them. The gun was an impulse buy because it was an inexpensive .357. Heck, I only gave $303 for it! I didnt know what to expect. WOW is all I can say. This gun is a tank! Solidly built and goes bang every time. It is a little heavy, not the whispery models you can order at double the cost but let me tell you, it is deadly accurate. The .38 recoil is very manageable. No problem at alll. Like I expected, the .357 was more challenging. Snapped pretty good. Not a problem in a life-threatening situation but I wouldnt want to put 50 rounds of .357 through it at one session. LOL! Overall a great gun and super buy. You need to check it out. This gun is the best kept .357 secret out there.

When i first got this gun it was great. Lockup was solid and it handled 357's great. 100 round of 357 and 200 or 38spl later the lockup has a little bit of give in it but is still acceptable. For $300 I'm not complaining. As was previously mentioned, the barrel was very sharp and unfinished. Some other reviews complained about the trigger grooves hurting their fingers. I haven't had any problems with it at all.

lets just start with its a heavy snubnose,,its front heavy but because of that it handles hot loads very well. comfortable grips and small package,,,i do have a couple of complaints but they are in the cosmetics. i have the same windicator in blue,,have owned it for 12 years,,must have been made by some one else because the barrel is crowned.the barrel on my new nkl looks as if it was cut with a band saw and very sharp edges no crown ,,,also the hole in the trigger guard for the little lock is a futile effort at best ,,thats a why bother,one last thing,,all the screws and pins are blue,,charge 10 bucks more and make the hardware stainless,,,BUT,,with all that ,,it is a decent pistol at a great price,,if this lasts as long as my blue one ill be very happy,,and if the weight bothers you,,either tighten your belt or leave it in the nightstand,,happy shooting

This is WELL worth the price. The finish was excellent, fired about 24 rounds of 38 spl and 24 of 357 mag, shoots low at 7 yards but at 5 yards where I will use it, doesn't matter...

I took the EAA 2" Nickel .357 Windicator to the range today & put 150 rounds through it. All I can say is very impressive little gun. I used 100 .38 special and 50 .357. Very stable, easy to double tap, recoil is minimal, even using .357 loads. Now realize, I paid $302 for this brand new, expecting a throw away gun for my truck...nope. This thing shoots as well as my S&W .357 for 1/3 the price! It's a little heavier than the Sigma I usually carry, but carries well concealed & comfortable, especially in a SmartCarry holster. The only negative point I have is that on the nickle gun (I don't know if blued is the same) the iron sights are unpainted making it difficult to get target acquisition quickly. I easily remedied this by painting them with Bright Sights. Target acquisition is now quick & dead on. If anyone is looking for an inexpensive (not cheap) .357 magnum with excellent performance, the EAA .357 Windicator is it!
