Local shop here had a 4" EAA Windicator for sale. It looked like it was in good condition, but I didn't have time to fondl...excuse me, handle it to give it good one over. THe bluing looked to be in pretty good shape. The price the dealer was asking was $189.00.

I have been kind of wanting a 357 plinker/carry gun. Do I need to get back in my car and head there really quick???

Thanks

Sounds decent if it's like new, I can order one here new for $210-220 last I checked
Auction arms has one NIB for $199,

Might want to try and talk em down a little, but if I wanted it I would pay that, they sound like good quality guns.

It seems a little high to me,i think closer to 169.00 unless it's in excellent shape.

I paid $199 brand new.

If you're thinking about a .357 Windicator, check out my review (http://www.handloads.com/articles/windicator/index.html) on Handload.com. The cylinder front and rear locking on these is pretty weak. I only fire .38+P out of mine now.

S&W model 10 for a bit more money. Better gun and will last a lot longer. It will handle +P 38's far longer than YOU will want to. Much higher quality gun as well. All steel construction except for the brand new ones these have MIM action parts. Look up some Police tradein revolvers a much better deal than the windacater.
