So far all I've found is eaa windicator
You might get a used Ruger SP101 for that, but more likely you will have to raise your budget a bit.
Under $400 is a pretty tough price point for a quality revolver new. Used you might come across a Ruger Security Six or S&W 19/66.
Another $150 gets you a brand spankin' new Ruger GP100...
You've managed to save $400, keep going...
Skimp on groceries, not on firearms...
My S&W 66 cost me $475, used. Love the gun, extremely happy with it.
I agree with continuing to save. Another $200 tops will get you some quality firearms.
How does the rossi 972 compare to eaa windicator
I looked at a Rossi at a local farm store and I've looked at the EAAs when GM puts them for $299. Neither impresses me as going to be a long term use revolver. The EAA is really heavy but I don't think heavily built. I would be leary of running hot loads or even hotter factory stuff.
The Rossi just didn't seem up to snuff. The finish looks a little cheap and I would also question durability. I would take another Taurus before either of those.
I am comparing these guns to the standard of my S&W 686 so maybe I'm being a bit harsh. I've gone through the cheap and more guns phase and now I would rather buy less guns at a higher quality.
For that price or less, you can pick up something similar to a used S&W 65-2, full size revolver in .357 mag. Many of these types of guns were carried much and shot little and are in mechanically new condition. I have one stashed for my wife's "Alamo" gun.
Sometimes you can find a Dan Wesson 15-2 in that price range. Most cheap Dan Wessons have a lot of miles on them but they shoot good. Take someone with you that knows revolvers or have it shipped to a gunsmith that does FFL transfers. My gunsmith is not cheap or quick. He charges $60 for a transfer and it takes him a couple days to get around to inspecting the gun. But he sees things that I wouldn't see for weeks. He isn't excited to be getting a new gun. He is just doing his job.
You can find some very good used Ruger Security Six revolvers for about $350. They came in blue or stainless.
I second the suggestion for a used Security Six
Shop used at pawn shops. No telling what you might find. Everybody is falling all over themselves for tactical ****.
I too would have thought the tactical craze would have brought out all kinds of revolvers, non-tactical shotguns and hunting rifles onto the used market for cheap prices. It has not worked out that way in my area.
The last gun show I went to had quite a few very decently priced Ruger and S&W revolvers.
i also recommend the ruger "sixes", security, police service, and speed. they are solid and accurate. mine is my edc
I second the motion for a six series, but they are becoming harder to find. Those that ended up owners are proud of them. My 4" stainless speed six will not be sold.
It has been a year since the last post. He should have bought one by now.
You're right. I read the date wrong.
I had an EAA Windicator. For the money it is a good gun. I ran full powered 357 mags through mine. Mine was a 2 inch model. I am sorry I sold it.
Yeah I wouldn't be getting rid of any older S&W, Ruger, or Colt DA revolvers. I'd love to find a used one for use as a "Truck" gun....
