High Standard (Dan Wesson) .357 REDUCED!
For Sale: High Standard Sentinel MKIII .357 - This is a Dan Wesson 15-2, made for High Standard. Made in the early to mid 1970's, double/single action. Approximate 2"-2 1/2" barrel, 6-shot revolver with adjustable sights. This pistol has had less than 1 box of shells though it since new - used only as a bedstand gun. Beautiful deep rich blueing. Overall in excellent condition. There are 2 very faint scratches on one side of the barrel and 2 light scratches on the frame behind the cylinder (above the grip) from loading it, no doubt. They are barely noticeable very light scratches, but they are there if you look close.
This has the interchangeable barrel system, with barrels available in a variety of lengths, from 2 1/2" up to 15"!
Very high quality and built like a tank. I remember when Dan Wesson himself (aged and in a wheel chair) demonstrated the strength of this pistol (the 15-2) at the national NRA show in about 1974 by placing a vice-secured metal dowel rod down the barrel against a loaded .357 mag round (thereby preventing the bullet from moving when fired and ALL the force being ejected around the cylinder and frame of the gun). Well, he had the whole thing SITTING IN HIS LAP when he pulled the trigger with NO harm to the gun or the shooter!
Comes with original wooden grip, Hogue MonoGrip installed (Very nice shooting with this -pebbled and cut for fingers), speed loader, and a New (Old Stock) Leather Brauer Brothers Vertical shoulder holster that fits this baby perfectly and was made in the USA. No box or paperwork, though the Brauer Bros holster does come in the original package.
The trigger on this gun is really nice - in both double and single action. VERY light squeeze in single! Very controllable due to the heft of the piece.
I would greatly prefer a FTF sale (ownership must be transferred).
I am located in West Middlesex, PA, which is about 1 hour north of Pittsburgh, and one hour south of Cleveland or Erie. Excellent for the Dan Wesson collector. Please e-mail me with any questions.
I will take $400 for this beautiful package FTF
