I have a Dan Wesson 15-2 .357 that I bought off my dad when I turned 21 for $350 (which is what he bought it for at a gun show) and I love the thing. It was originally the 6"V (not heavy) and I went ahead and bought a 4"V barrel assembly off gunbroker. All my gun buddies think it is the coolest thing ever to be able to interchange barrels like that and they love shooting it. It has an amazing SA pull and with a little home-grown gunsmithing the DA can be equally impressive. I think they are a great value and a hoot to shoot!
