I got this gun new a couple months ago for $291 OTD. I was really hoping for a 4" bedside revolver with an exposed hammer for the wife to use. I wanted .357 so that I could use .38 +P without worry and also be able to load a magnum if needed.
All told I've put about 90 .38+p and 6 .357 magnum.
I love this gun. It's essentially the size of a K-frame and nicely weighted. My only other revolver experience was a Taurus 85 lightweight hidden hammer. I really liked how easily that revolver fit in the pocket...but I HATED shooting it. After about 5 rounds I was done. Long nasty heavy Trigger pull.
THE EAA has a wonderful trigger. It's grooved and after 50 rounds your finger may hurt if you only shoot DA. The DA pull is very nice and shorter than the Taurus I had. SA and you could shoot all day.
Decent HD accuracy with the 2" barrel. Having now had it awhile I'm glad I got stuck with the 2" because it fits in the bedside safe (cheap harbor freight thing) much easier.
Fired .357 for the first time today and loved it. A little louder, a little more flash, a little more muzzle flip, but not uncomfortable at all. This was outside and I would never want to shoot .357 inside at night and especially without hearing protection.
My plan is to find some non +P I will designate as the HD ammo for the wife and enjoy this gun at the range myself.
Absolutely fantastic price vs quality.
