    Default Re: Finallg got the Dan Wesson

    I use to like mines its a very versitle gun, accurate amd powerful being 357 magnum. I was able to shoot some pretty heavy reloads in my DWA and it held up proving to be accurate and versitle. Able to attach a scope on the venting easily and use it to hunt deer or hogs, in its 8" VH form. Sometimes when I was working security I carried it and qualified with it easily. I just dropped it from its 8" HV barrel to 4" HV. I'm looking for another one maybe this time in 44 mag but 357 would do.

    Enjoy your find.

    Now aren't you glad you listened and waited?

    Google up the tool and some are still out there.
    As for the gauge, a standard feeler gauge set from Autozone has .006-.008 in it to set your gap.

    Why does it look like someone took a coarse metal file to the muzzle?
