Default Any feedback on the Windicator- Weihrauch revolver by EAS?

A good deal came my way on this 6 shot, 38 special/357 mag revolver. Wondering if any FTF members own one and if its been a reliable handgun?

That is the company that made the Arminius revolvers. About Charter Arms quality. Not trash, not a Colt, Ruger or S&W. Kinda heavy, clunky, heavy trigger- but they work.

It was kind of a make a decision right now kinda a thing. Bought it NIB for $100.00. I guess it's not a bad deal. Shoots nice with very little recoil.

It's been a while, but "fair to middling" is what I recall. They don't seem to stand out for good or bad. I'd buy a Windicator before I bought another Taurus.
I have a couple Weihrauch air rifles, which are quite good.
