I've had this 44 Magnum on back order for a very long time with my supplier.
The guy emailed me yesterday and said some finally showed up and did I still want one....

They got 7 of them in and I bought 3 of them!! :shock:
I figure if I can get a good price for 2 of them, I just might be able to keep one for myself.

They're an EAA Bounty Hunter in 44 Mag and blue with walnut and has a 7.5" barrel.
I believe it's a sort of a copy of a Colt SA Army - I don't know jack about revolvers...
It's made in Germany by a company called Weihrauch and many say they manufacture a good quality revolver.

The have pretty good reviews and they're a lot cheaper that a S&W or Colt. :dunno:

Have you fellers ever had one?

What do you think - Will I be able to sell 2 of them??

Should be here by Friday!!

I ordered a couple boxes of ammo too - And wow!! 44 Mag ammo isn't very cheap... :shock:

We will see how it goes!! (-:

I don't know anything about the EAA revolvers, the only 44 mag I have is a Ruger Super Blackhawk.
Mine has the squared off trigger guard, and that thing will slam you.
I do have some Pachmeyers that make it a lot more shootable.
I'd shoot it a lot more, but like you said $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :wow:

Might be another good excuse to reload!!

I thought I might try to find a revolver that shoots 45 acp ammo.
There is the Smith & Wesson Model 625 and there is the Taurus Tracker Model 455 too...
Maybe if I sell all three of the 44 Mags I could find one of the above.

But I do have a bit of a boner for that 44 mag right now!! (-:

It's supposed to look like this:

Only with a 7.5 inch barrel.

From what I hear as long as the lockup is tight and precise, the gap twixt the cylinder and forcing cone is very, very close, and the hammer locks back and releases then it's a good gun. :thinkin: :dunno:

I have had the unfortunate experience of being off to the side of a revolver shooting wad cutters where the cylinder was not tight to the forcing cone (or was slightly off center due to poor lock-up). Many spots of blood was one of the outcomes, much pain was the other.

Nice looking pistol! I'd want one if the cash flow was better right now, but nothing until the tax return when
all the cards will be paid off!

They showed up Friday!!

Image

And seem to fit mu hand fairly well!!
They feel quite "significant" too...

Image

They are blue but the frames look case hardened and they look pretty good that way IMHO!! (-:

This is what they call them:

Image

A "Big Bore" Bounty Hunter!! Oh Yeah!! (-:

Cylinder seems tight and locks up nice.
I can pull the trigger part way back and the cylinder spins.

This must be the "Transfer Bar" safety I read so much about:

Image

And below is the empty case poker-outer:

Image

I went and pulled the rod out that runs down the center of the cylinder
and it all seems to be very well machined and fits together good and snug.

Image

I don't see any evidence of poor machine work or bad craftsmanship - All three look very well made!!

The inside of the cylinder was very smooth and shiny:

Image

And the barrel looks really good too:

Image

I did find one thing that I could complain about!!
2 of the revolvers looked like this on both sides:

Image

And one - probably the one i'll keep for myself - looked like this on one side:

Image

The screw is missing!!
The grips both still seem to be good and tight on that one...
I suppose I'll take the other screw out and find one that matches - or 2 the right size that match each other.

So - I have guns but no ammo!!
The ammo should be here Monday and if the weather is good I do believe I'll go to the range and shoot the one I might keep.

Maybe I'll have Tolley make me an old west holster and carry one on each hip.
I'll just open-carry everywhere!!
Might be kinda hard to drive a vehicle or sit in my chair at work...

It's be OK on the Harley though!!
I wonder how many people would "call it in" when they saw some dude ridin' down the road with revolver strapped to each hip?? :mrgreen:

Anyway - These revolvers look good to me!!
And I don't think a guy can get into a decently made new 44 Magnum for much cheaper than what these cost.
The "Dirty Harry" S&W Model 29 is over 2-1/2 times more expensive and the 629 double - and that's my cost.
I'm sure it would cost the end user even more!!

Casing poker and cyl removal are just like it was on my old beloved Single Six.
I think you'll like it!

Have you ever shot a 44 mag before? They are a blast! You can also get away with shooting 44 special and 44 Russian in them if you come across any at a good deal

The 1st thing I did was find a screw to replace the missing one:

Image

It's an M4x10 - went to work and looked in my employer's metric bolt bin - But the wrong head...
So I just got 2 and replaced them both!! (-:

Image

Look good to me!! Although a little blurry in the pic... )-:


Well - I got ready to head to the range...
I brought a water-bottle to blast with a 240 flat nosed bullet moving at like 1200 or 1300 fps :great:

Image

Went to the range with a little trepidation - Will I be able to handle this thing??
Will I have a gash in my forehead and be in the next youtube "fails" video??

I made it to the range - Time for a little revolver education...

Image

Pull the hammer to half cock and load or unload.
Pull it all the way back - then to half-cock - the safety is on.
I'm getting there!! :mrgreen:

I take careful aim and give the trigger a pull - - And Holy Sh*t!!
This thing has got some recoil!!
And the grips aren't the greatest either...

But man'o'man - does it have some power!!

It was a freakin' blast Walt!! (-:
I ran 50 rounds through it...

Blasted that water bottle:

Image

A video would have been a little more impressive...
But lets go with the word "spectacular" - It really blew that water everywhere!! (-:

On the downside - a small downside - about shooting 50 rounds of full bore 44 Magnum... and it's not just the price!!
Was this:

Image

Now I HAVE to keep it:

Image

I got some blood on it!! :mrgreen:

A good washing and a little Krazy Glue and I am just fine:

Image

I think I see why people like revolvers now - What a blast!!
Didn't have to crawl around looking for spent brass too!! :great:

Now - I need to buy some dies and some bullets and I'll be shooting this a lot more!!

Anybody know of any better grips that I could put on this thing??
Same as a Colt, I'm sure...

I might start carrying this in my glove-box... :minigun:

I have to use the rubberized Pachmeyers on my .44, the wood grips look nice but they are brutal.
They say you are supposed to let the revolver recoil up and kind of rotate in your hand, but I never got the hang of that.

I've got rubber Pachys on my GP100. My loads are 158 gn JHPs moving at 1625 fps.
And what Husk said. Let the muzzle rise a bit with your forearms. It's single action, right?
So don't worry about holding it down to be back on target quickly.

Just thinking about this. What has been suggested makes good sense to my bitty cranium. It's not a real self defense weapon so why use it as such? Not to say that one shot wouldn't stop a crazed rhino though. :wow:

You're fighting the recoil too much. Ride the recoil, this is the world of revolvers. None of the energy is wasted to cycle the slide. I shoot my wheel guns a lot and love it.
