Dan Wesson

I picked up a Dan Wesson this past weekend. First one for me.
357mag, 6" vented heavy barrel. think it is a mod 15.

Was in a lgs and was told I bot a good deal at $400.

no box or tool. So how would you change barrel?

Thanks

I've never had one, but it does sound like great buy. I found this page: https://www.danwessonforum.com/ufaqs...els-and-grips/

GREAT buy. I have two DW 357s, a blue 15-2, and a new production 715. Both are as good as it gets in a 357. With that serial number, it would be an early 80s 15.2

CZ owns DW and you can still get the tool and gauge to change the barrel from them on their website store.

You might want to check out EWK Arms for Dan Wesson goodies. He makes barrels, barrel nuts, parts, tools, muzzle brakes, etc. for Wessons, among other things. I have two stainless ejector rod housings he made on my Bearcats (up until a few years ago, they were anodized aluminum), and he does amazing work.

Mine's not much older SN 356***. It's got an 8" Heavy Barrel. I planed on getting a short barrel for it but never did. I inherited my Uncle's S&W mod. 13 in nickel with a 3" barrel, which covered that need.

I got curious and dug up the receipt. Bought my DW in 8-82 for $280 new. I thew away the box when I got home, since I had bought a case for it too. Still have the tool.

Sounds like a good score! My brother was gifted a semi complete 3 barrel set, presentation box and tools. I think it was missing a 4" barrel. I guess one cant complain for that price.
