I agree. As long as you don't buy DW's new, then between resellers the price does not change much.

I find my DW's are solid well built guns and very accurate. Also they are easy to clean if you pull the barrel routinely.

I don't own any DW revolvers. First time I came across them was as a kid on the range at the Sportsman's club where I cut my teeth. My first shots from a Dan Wesson revolver were from a .357 Max. Pretty cool!

I've always thought I'd own one -- I don't yet. But I'm not done yet... I imagine I will find a nice 6-inch .357 Mag, and I'll bring it home.

But here is my question!
CZ-USA's Dan Wesson has produced a new version of these, as shown here on their site.
http://www.cz-usa.com/products/view/dw715/
Question is... are these real, or vaporware?
I've not yet EVER heard anyone discuss them as shooters that they have in their hands.

Certainly, it could be because I haven't searched out any conversation on the subject. I have not visited that Dan Wesson forum linked three times in this thread. (I think I will visit it!) I'm sure that they know the answer to this question.

But what about here? Does anyone have a NEW Dan Wesson revolver? Know anyone that does? Seen one in a shop or on a shooting range?

Me, I'm a used gun kinda guy for the most part. I'll snag an older Monson DW, I don't need or want a new one. But I'm still curious. We talk about e-v-e-r-y dang gun here on TFL, but when does anyone EVER talk about a new production CZ Dan Wesson?

Ever?

Sevens,

There is a lot of talk about Dan Wesson semi-autos. DW revolvers; not much at all.

Yep, very much aware of that. Just wondering if anyone has come in to contact with the revolver.

Dan Wessons

I have to agree that there hasn't been a lot of talk about the CZ clones. I have never seen one so I don't know if they are close to the originals in quality. I have owned a 14, a 15 and two 744s and I liked them. Once the novelty wore off they were just another revolver and there are a lot of other choices.

I have 4 of the DW SuperMag series (.357SM, .375SM and .445SM), a .44 Rhino conversion, the .460 Rowland, and a pre-CZ 1911. All fantastic guns! I'll pick up the .357Mag (especially the packs with multiple barrels) when I find one at the right price.

Shooting4life That is purely showing off. Shame shame. Beautifull group of DW's

So many DW revolver post at one time!! I love my 4 dw's. Old DWs from the monson era early palmer are for me are far better than what you can buy today from all but freedom as far as production handguns go.

I see this thread has resurfaced after being away for a year or so.

If you've got a 4 digit S/N gun, it's no doubt a "Monson gun" made in the Monson, Mass plant, early in the production. I can't give you an idea when it was made, but these folks can probably at least take a SWAG.

http://www.danwessonforum.com

Since I last posted on this, I found another DW, 22, this one also a Monson Gun, with a 4" VH barrel. The trigger on this one is as good or maybe better that any other D/A revolver I've ever owned.



And they're not inexpensive anymore. The market has discoverd them and they're on the way up.j

What's yours worth? What'd you pay for it?
