    I have a guy offering to sell me this gun. It would be a carry gun so it HAS to be reliable. Anybody know anything about this model or maker? Thanks

    Gun Test magazine did a comparision on this and several other snub nosed revolvers a while back. The Windicator came out as a "Best Buy". It out preformed the Taurus straight up regardless of price.

    If the deal is good (less than $200), I would do it.

    Funny you mentioned $200. The price is $200 and includes a couple of boxes of ammo. Should I go for it?

    Thanks Eagle

    If you can test it before buying I would go for it. That is a decent price. Check some of the auction sites to get an idea. They aren't the prettiest guns in the world, but are supposed to be durable. For not a lot more though you might find a decent used S&W. I have seen used model 19's going for $239 or therebouts. Shop some of the gunstores for a day, then decide on the Windicator.
