So, my neighbor Is selling this gun, i can't find any good info on it. Its black snub nosed and she has only shot a few rounds threw it. Looks feels brand new.

This Is what i have so far
European American Armory

6 shot revolver, 357mag she's got 38spcl in it now though.
Black.

If anyone knows the worth new and used, or how sturdy these eaa company GUNS r.

Heres a fairly detailed review... http://www.handloads.com/articles/default.asp?id=22" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I had one a little while back, never gave me any problems, but it was butt ugly!
Id suggest 38 or 38+P..... 357 in it tends to be unpleasant.

I have one as my carry gun. Works fine. Recoil isn't a problem, as you can see in the video.

Great little gun and I regret selling mine.

I think I paid around $200.00 to $250.00 new back around 2005-2006ish.

No one will ever confuse it with a Colt Python, but they are cheap and they work just fine for SD purposes.
