    [QUOT=RevolvingGarbageE]s that the EAA Windicator? I held one of those the other day. Felt very nice for the price.

    Im liking the dual tone on that RG too. Did it come with the nickel finish?[/QUOTE]
    Yes, and yes. The EAA is in .357, and the RG has the Ulm proof mark on it and the year 67. S/N is 4260#

    Interesting.

    I only know that mine was made after 1968 (made in Miami after importation was banned) and before 1986 (when they stopped making them).

    There are a few alterations you should consider in making this gun really hot. For example:

    1. Ream out the chambers so the gun can fire full throttle .357 mag rounds;

    2. Cut an 11-degree forcing cone into it to improve accuracy;

    3. Have the gun hard chromed or nickeled; and,

    4. Have it scoped so you can hunt deer and small game.

    A nice action job would also be in order. Oh, and you might want to eventually have a 6-inch Python barrel installed to maximize accuracy.

    While you're at it, might as well swap out the grips, frame, and cylinder with a Python parts.

    what bothers me is you don't have a permit to carry,yet you have it concealed in a glovebox.IF it's loaded,it's illegal in many states.
    please dont keep your registration and insurance card in there,or you and the nice police officer that pullsy you over for 'whatever, will surely have a nasty encounter.

    Illegal in many states it totally irrelevant, because it is legal in my state.

    Also, I do as a matter of fact keep my registration and other papers in a nice leather folder tucked between the center console and the passenger seat of my car. It is a good way to avoid a nasty encounter as you said, and I just generally hate the way papers tend to clutter the glovebox up.

    The guy from the auction seems to know his stuff, except for the part about not expecting over $200 for a used Rohm. I don't know if a Rohm fresh out of the factory (if they still made them) would be worth that much.

    -Looks an awful lot like my bathroom gun, although mine is still missing the cylinder release.

    Hmmm... I've got a lot of old .38 brass... .

    BTW, use friction tape, not electrical tape. Friction tape improves your grip without accepting fingerprints.

    It looks okay, but yeah, his price is a little...:rolleyes: Unfortunately there's very little on these guns.
