The single action itch has hit me, and I am looking into some lower priced revolvers. The EAA big bore bounty hunter has caught my attention and I am looking for info on them. Good deal? Good gun? Overall fit and finish? How did it shoot? Would you recommend? The magnum models good to shoot lots of magnum through? I plan on using it as a trail/hiking gun and probably will end up with the .357 model. What say ye?

John Taffin and Paco Kelly use them and if Bob Munden will do his action job on them, they can't be as bad as some will lead you to believe. Taffin has even been to the factory in Germany and owns a special serial number model. Be aware that while they have a transfer bar ignition like a Ruger Blackhawk that allows a safe full cylinder carry, (most Colt clones don't), they also have the Colt-style flat main spring and don't take abuse (fanning and such) very well at all. The cylinder is considerably larger than most Colt-clones as well.

is this still safe? I thought people still carried single action revolvers cowboy carry no matter if they had the transfer bar safety or not.

At one time, all revolvers had the firing pin as part of the hammer or struck by the hammer directly and risked accidental discharge by impacting the hammer (dropping the revolver or such), Ruger developed the transfer bar ignition for single actions specifically to prevent that from happening. The transfer bar is raised into position only if the trigger is pulled. Colts and clones (and early model Rugers without the upgrade) still have the old style and need to be carried with an empty chamber.

I'd rather have a new model Blackhawk or Vaquero, but I'd buy the EEA if it checked out okay and if I wanted it. I haven't heard that it's "junk" and I've handled a few that timed and checked out quite well.
