    I've not seen a Dan Wesson .357 Magnum for ages but I use to own one. Accurate as all get out. I should have bought a complete pistol pack while I had the chance. I don't even see them anymore. Yours is the first one I've ever seen that didn't have a barrel nut at the front, that's odd.

    Beautiful gun!

    Is this a fixed-barrel version?

    On my 15-2. the barrel nut is more obvious at the muzzle.

    Yup, mine is a rare 3" fixed barrel model. That's what intrigued me so much about it. Its much harder to find these fixed barrel models.

    Never seen a fixed barrel like that, beutiful handgun. Those are not stock grips right. Maybe LB customs? You have to shot that off over at the danwessonforum.

    Very pretty.
    One of the few guns as pretty/prettier than the Model-19

    Perfect in many categories. You have a fine all-purpose weapon.
    That has got to be one of the prettiest Dan Wessons I've ever seen!

    Great find! Those 3 inchers are scarce no doubt. DW bluing is top notch.

    Anyone looking to do some reblueing and want the dan wesson quality of blueing can contact Blue Ridge Blueing. he did DW revolvers for a time.
