About the Handgun:
The Windicator is manufactured by Weihrauch of Germany. It is an import of their small frame, double-action 'Hunter' model. Standard features include an internal firing pin block, coil mainspring, grooved target trigger, serrated cylinder latch, low profile non snag sights and Rubber target grips.
About the Manufacturer:
Not actually a firearms manufacturer, this company imports firearms from various foreign manufacturers and distributes them in the US under its own brand name. The company has been in business since 1990.

EAA currently imports its handguns from Tanfoglio, located in Italy, from H. Weihrauch, located in Germany and from Zastava located in Serbia. All guns are covered by EAA's lifetime limited warranty.
About the Cartridge:
Smith & Wesson introduced this cartridge for its heavy-frame revolver. Ammunition was developed by Winchester in cooperation with Smith & Wesson. Using a lengthened and strengthened version of the .38 Special case, the .357 Magnum was rapidly accepted by hunters and law enforcement. At the time of its introduction, it was claimed to easily pierce the body panels of automobiles and crack engine blocks. While it has less power than the .44 Magnum, it compares favorably to the 10mm Norma and .45 ACP, but with better armor penetration. Today factories offer over fifty different loadings in this caliber.
