European America Armory’s 2-inch, polished blue Windicator revolver offers very good value. The all-steel model costs only $319 and holds six shots of .38 Spl. or .357 Magnum ammunition. The Windicator has a recoil-absorbing rubber grip, a hammer block safety and large fixed sights that have a non-glare sighting plane. The trigger pull is somewhat heavy at 6 pounds single action and 14.5 pounds double action, but trigger travel is smooth, and the SA break is very clean.

The Windicator shoots as good as it looks. Five-shot groups fired with five different magnum loads at 15 yards ranged between 2.74 and 3.83 inches. The fastest load was Remington’s 125-grain SJHP, which flew through the Windicator’s 2-inch barrel at 1,306 feet per second and delivered 473 foot pounds of muzzle energy. A full evaluation will appear in a future issue of Combat Handguns, so keep an eye out!

    I am glad someone did a review of this gun. I own the 4″ Nickel and it shoots as good a a 800.00 gun. VERY underrated. I am not sure how it will hold up over thousands of rounds but as of now I couldnt ave ask for more. Oh way maybe the sights could be better because they are the same excat color as the frame and are hard to pick up. Some bright sight paint can fix that. Other thing is perfect!
