    Here is my old Dan Wesson .357 revolver. What a honey. The most accurate pistol I own.
    Prob ought to sell it, I rarely shoot it.

    Closeup of the Dan Wesson. Still looks really nice. I think I got it in the late '70s or early '80s. Not sure, although I was pretty young when I got it, and now I am almost pretty old

    As it isn't the VH just the V I'll give you $ 300 for it. I paid $225 for my VH new.

    Sorry Steve, but I'm going to jump over you and offer $325. This will round out my Dan Wesson collection.

    Remember the days when revolvers were king and gunshops sold brand new Combat Magnums? Model 36 Chief Specials and Colt Cobras? Dan Wessons were among that honored elite.

    It was made in 1977-78. Just found out the mfg range.

    First time I ever fired it was with .357 naturally. I'm a Manly Man, gimme a box of .357, says I to the range guy.
    When I touched that cannon off, the muzzle blast blew all my targets off my range shelf.

    I still remember my first .357 shot! I was only about 27 yrs old.

    That the 15-2 with interchangeable barrels? I traded mine with 4" & 6" barrels for a Hungarian FEG PA-63 and a couple hundred.

    Yes, you can change out the barrels. When I bought it, I didn't have that much money.

    I bought mine in the early 70's, paid $125 new from a friends gun shop. What a great gun, shoots well and looks great! I have the interchangeable bbls and tools.

    I haven't seen one of those since the Police Academy. One of my classmates had one. Nice pistol.

    I had the 15-2 VH, gave it to my dad when I got the 44 Mag pistol pack. I paid $ 550 for the pistol pack, 2.5, 4, 6, & 8 inch barrels.
