I just picked up a like new condition Dan Wesson .357 mag. The original owner bought it in the 1980s, put half a box of shells thru it, cleaned it, and stored it away. I even got the half full box of cartridges that he bought with the gun. :blink: Posted Image

You'll like like that DW clampdaddy, they are known for accuracy. That tensioned barrel idea has been used in a few rifle builds.

You will love it!! I've had one since I bought it new and love it. Mine has been accurate right out of the box, with nothing done to it. It has plenty of weight to it, so full power loads are comfortable to shoot. Get out to the range and burn up some ammo.

really nice looking. Just one barrel? If so you should shop around for the other barrel lengths. Interchangeable barrels is what Dan Wessons are all about. Well, that and accuracy at 200 meters. :huh:

Yeah, just one barrel. Eventually I want to get a longer one and a shorter one. A set of the thin round butt grips would be nice too.

My buddy has one too. 8" .357 but no extra barrels in the many years he has owned it! Same with his contender he has had but no extra barrels! Weird guy.
