Zastava Revolver

Has anyone seen these? The blued ones are .357 whilst the stainless is .44 mag. From the Zastava web site.

Interesting. Looks like a high bore axis. I don't like Zas's for their blatantly sexist advertising.

I have asked EAA why they do not import these and the answer was just "not at this time" more or less. Now that I take a close look at them, that top strap sure looks thin.

Nice looking polished bluing anyhow . . . . interesting. Looks a bit better put together than the "Windicator" that EAA imports now.

They certainly look a lot like Rossi's. Except for the weird vent rib on the 1st one and the really odd sideplate screws on the 3rd.

I own one, 4" barrel, customized. This revolver is not appreciated in Serbia at all. It sells for up to 150 euros, new one is around 200e. (Keep in mind that basic Glock models cost here about 800e, and Beretta 92fs goes for 1300e) I bought mine for 250e, but first time at the range, after only few rounds, the nickel peeled off the drum and jammed the gun. I had it chrome plated later. The barrel is also of poor quality, not designed for frequent use, hence the low barrel life expectancy. The side screws are the same on every model. Model .44 is discontinued. The same frame couldn't keep up with the heavier caliber. You may notice Zastava did that with it's Tokarev knock-off, the 7,62mm M57. They used the same frame design later to make 9mm and even 10mm version, which couldn't keep up. All in all, the price here is fair, so I bought one that was customized to look somewhat like Colt Python.

Thanks for the report. It is nice to read first hand experience.

Here's the pic. You can notice some minor differences compared to the factory model.
