    I could easily live with those minor issues. The day I come across a Dan Wesson, is the day I add a new wheelie to my collection.

    You'll learn to love this one. I've got a DW 15-2 with 4 barrels. My first hand gun purchase. They're known for standing up to more rounds fired than you can afford in ammo. I did have trigger work done on mine and it was a worthwhile investment and period of separation.

    Good shooting.

    Very nice looking gun. I honestly never even gave Dan Wesson a thought until coming to this forum. I heard of them but never gave them a thought.

    Congrats. Versatile and well made gun. You might want to contact CZ USA. They own Dan Wesson Firearms now and still support the revolvers. Additional barrels and shrouds may be available for it through them.

    Congrats on a real nice gun! I bought a brand new DW 14-2 in 1982. They are great shooting guns that tend to be very accurate! I still regret trading it years later!

    ^I have said same^^^^^^^^

    Minus three of the barrels.

    Heres mine.

    OP, you will love this revolver!

    They are everything a Colt is, sans the price and cult following.
