What's the word on theses as far as quality? Did they get better with Taurus? Reason is I want a trail gun for hogs or whatever might cross my path. I can't stand to abuse my pinned and recessed SW 65-2 357. Saw academy had some Rossi 357 for $350. Opinions?

I can't speak for the Rossi revolvers, but I've had good luck with my EAA Windicator
It's a bit rough where the barrel was cut, but other than that, it's a pretty neat gun at a pretty reasonable price.

I'm sure you would do well with a Rossi, I have a 4 inch barrel EAA Windicator 357 that is a very well made gun and I would recommend one of them with no problem.

I have had experience with several Rossi Revolvers and have had excellent service from them. There are a half dozen or so floating around the family.

They use the time proven S&W action and if one is familiar with the insides of them they can be cleaned up, polished and smoothed just like a S&W.

The Windicator is an old design from the same firm that brought us the Arimus and Titan Tiger, which means that even as cheap as they are, they are vastly overpriced!

While it is true the German revolver design is an inexpensive one, I have an Arminius double action.22LR/22mag pistol that is a pleasure to shoot and I had a mint Arminius .357 mag that was one sweet pistol too. Just saying...

At the gun show yesterday I checked out (along with my wife) about every make of .357mag that was in the building. The S&W are nice, the Rugers still can't be beat for comfortable grip and good balance for me, but I also liked the Taurus and Rossi (model 46202) wheel guns. All of them felt solid, I believe there was one I felt was too lightweight to be a .357mag though (I just don't remember which one) all the ones I looked at where large frames in snubby's or 3-4 inch models.

But...left with nuffin, no money no guns. I did order and get 500 bullits in 9x18 last week. I have cut down 100 9x19 cases to the right length, now I got to mate a few and see how bad it hurts. Those skinny 9x19 Luger cases have to fireform out to .364. Maybe in two weeks.

Got one in .38 special. The Airweight. It is most definitely lightweight. It feels like a toy...until you shoot it, then it kicks like a mule. Hard to hold on to with the square butt, my advice is get the round butt or whatever it's called. It gives slightly more pinky hold.
