EAA Windicator Ancestor .38 Special FIE F38 Titan Tiger 2 inch Chrome 6 Shot Compact Grips VG 1970s Production Standard 38 Smith & Wesson Special Ammunition  Guns > Pistols > EAA Pistols > Other
Description: EAA’s Windicator® revolvers are some of the best to be had for under $400. We have sold them now for 50 years. Photo specimen is the Windicator’s direct ancestor, the FIE Arminius Service Revolver chambered in .38 Special. FIE product number was F38C2. This one comes to us from a light duty security career in New England. From its 100,000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1976 or 1977. Frame manufacturer was Firearms Import and Export Corp of Miami, direct ancestor to EAA. Parts manufacturer was Manufacturer is Hermann Weihrauch Revolver GmbH of Mellrichstadt, Germany. Construction is steel one piece barrel, cylinder assembly, hammer, trigger, and internal parts with an alloy main frame and grip frame. Type is traditional double and single action revolver. Ignition is hammer against floating firing pin. All Arminius series revolvers have a transfer bar internal safety that prevents the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is fully depressed. Barrel is one piece .675 diameter steel, with six groove right hand 18.75 rifling. Front Sight is serrated blade integral to a single post serrated top rib that mates to frame integral fixed notch rear sight. Trigger is .250 serrated face service width, with .240 serrated spur hammer. Cylinder is pull pin swingout with checkered surface steel ejection rod. Chambering is six rounds of .38 Smith & Wesson Special standard velocity non +P ammunition. Firing +P rounds can batter the frame face, as we have seen in the past. Grips are one piece compact type, and will accommodate an HKS 10A speedloader. Finish is entirely chrome plated. Weight empty is 27 ounces with center of gravity at the trigger point. Surface detractions on this specimen are only moderate, principally plating weakness with some finish loss on the cylinder face and adjacent surfaces. We rate it as Very Good, 75 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and single action pull measures in the 5 pound vicinity. Cylinder times correctly with hammer travel to spare in all six positions on single and double action. Lateral play to the cylinder is negligible. Blast effect to the underside of the frame top strap directly above the barrel’s forcing cone is minimal, no cutting. We estimate this revolver has been fired fewer than 500 times, all with standard velocity ammunition. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. Replacement pricing on the Windicator is well above $300 in our area. We’re offering its ancestor Titan Tiger in the photos, however, for only $ 169.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, District of Colombia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, or any jurisdiction with a melt law that affects handguns. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $15 lower 48; $40 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
