A Pick of Revolver Choices at Gunbroker.com

Common items like 357 Magnum revolvers usually mean wide supply, as a recent check of www.Gunbroker.com showed when we began looking for a Taurus 605.

According to the January 2008 issue of Gun Tests, the Taurus 605B2, $391, needed some minor work to be an A-grade gun. Online pricing for the gun found on Gunbroker.com showed one gun in a no-reserve auction, #107736830, with a “Buy Now” price of $273, a dollar above the starting bid.

Several other auctions, such as #107264852, put the gun’s price around $300. That’s a pretty good deal for a gun that perhaps needs 10 minutes of tuning to ensure the “cylinder pin doesn’t stick in the forward position from recoil,” Gun Tests said.

I haven't had my hands on that one, but, I have an EAA Witness that is a high quality gun. Manufacturers have a certain criteria of safety that they have to adhere to. The first chance I get to look at one I will and I will feedback.

What is your opinion of the EAA Windicator revolver? It has a low suggested retail price, but is it a good quality firearm?

Thank you, Tom

A musket is a long(~61 to 66") Military muzzleloader, smooth or rifled, usually with 3 barrel bands. During the Civil War, soldiers lokked to lightening their Muskets by cutting them down to shorter lengths. There were 2 band Enfield Muskets and even shorter 2 band Musketoons. Enfields were usually .577 Caliber and were rifled to handle the 500+ grain "Minie"(Minay-French name) ball ammo. Most were percussion cap with earlier ones in flintlock ignition.
