EAA Windicator .38 Special

Can the .38 Special +P bullets be used in this gun? I have the crome, 4" barrell model.

Also, how about The Armscor .38 Special with a 4" barrell?

There was a thread recently on the Armscor .38. Upshot was, Armscor does not recommend +P.
"As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven. "

If you're thinking of carrying these guns with more powerful cartridges, like +Ps,
and you had to use it, probably nothing bad would happen with the few rounds fired.
But they are not meant to have +Ps for a steady diet.
Better to choose ammo of normal .38 pressures, that are recommended as effective for your needs.
If you really need more, best get a .357.

Both low-grade guns. The EAA Windicator is infamous for fundamentally bad metallurgy, which of course can't be fixed after the fact.
