    I got .357 revolver from my dad. I couldnt find much on it online. Has anyone heard of this brand, what is it worth, etc?
    It shoots pretty good, and its pretty accurite... He bought it in the 70's if that helps...

    It says HW357 on the side, and has a viking head stamped on one side.
    The other side has:
    H. Weihrauch
    Sportwuffen
    Mellrichstadt
    Made in Germany

    On the Barrel it says F.I.E Miami Fl

    Weihrauch revolvers were sold in the US under the name Arminius HW-357 beginning in 1977. They sold new for a fairly affordable ~$160, even back then.

    Never handled one, but supposed to be fairly well made and accurate. Looks like you have a 3" barrel Hunter model. The "FIE" is the US importation company in Miami.

    i honestly don't know what they'd be worth these days, but yours looks to be in pretty good shape.
