    Guys, what the deal with these "Windicater" revolvers? German made and too inexpensive to seem real. Are they junk or worth a shot?

    EAA Weirauch Windicater .357, 2" $260.00.:confused::flag:

    How about the Heritage .22/.22 mag for $200.00?

    Are either of these cheap guns worthy of their price? Advise please.:confused::flag:

    Thanks, oldman but, i've read that review among others. Just wondered if any of you guys have experience with them.
     
  3. The EAA 'Witness' pistols,except for their 10mms' which have some slide and frame breakage,get good reviews. Don't know anyone with the revolvers.
     
  4. I have had several buddies with EAA's and my father just recently got a semi-auto EAA as well. Overall the experience has been great. I have a TZ-75 Italian version of the CZ-75 and EAA was the importer shortly after tanfoglio stopped. My TZ is smooth as hot butter and never misses a beat, ever.

    I've read there are issues with the .357 "snubby."
    Apparently, they just cut the 4" barrel down to the 2 1/2" and didn't bother to clean up the end of the barrel where the cut occurred. Not a problem for me as I am a machinist with the proper tools to readily remedy this. But if they're that lax on barrel reduction, what else are they lax on?

    Just wondering.:confused::flag:

    Ya, still am. As a matter o fact, I bought one last night. I've no personal experience with them and one cannot always believe what they see on youtube.....right?
    That's why I asked. I bought the .22/.22Mag. I never called them crap, just posted the video to show my concern. Someone piss in your cornflakes this morning, Oldman?:rofl:
    Nice little gun, shoots high. Whats the best way to correct the high aim point with fixed sights?:flag:

    $204.00, $218.00 tax title and out the door. That's a darn hard price to beat. Anything that shoots is worth two hundred to me.

  9. I"ll assume you're talking to me.

    My knowledge of the Glock 17L is probably about as much as you know from making Google searches and reading.

    I've not seen one nor do I know of anyone who owns or shoots one in my small circle of shooting friends.

    Best bet is to just read up online.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
