Default Prices seem to be climbing

I've been tracking the cost of DW pistol packs on several of the on-line auctions and sales sites; a set in good condition, with 3 or most times 4 barrels, orignal case, barrel tool and spacer hover near or above the $800 mark. I have personally been out bid on 3, with my max price being right at the $800 point. One set went for more than $1200.

I have one listed now in firearms and accessories for sale. I have also included pics and would consider partial trade. Take a look. I am asking $699.00 I have saw this gun sell for as low as $750.00 and up to $1500.00 this is a good buy. Would consider a smaller caliber in trade.

AROUND $800. Maybe more, maybe less. Where else are you gonna get 4 good revolvers for $800 ? Have had a model 15-HV since about 1978. Very accurate, built like a tank.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Check gunbroker. Saw one there this morning. Some guy has the frame and barrels for sale (why someone would sell frame and barrels in different auctions is beyond me.)

So he can make more money from it! He can get about $300 for the frame and $150+ or so for each of the barrels. If the barrels are really clean, the snubbie and the big ones wil go way up there.

I knew I should have grabbed that pistol pack a while back for $775!

On the DW forum, there's a guy testing barrels he's going to be making and selling. So far, no complaints from the testers.

I have one of these that was gifted to me by a family member. He bought it brand new about 40 years ago and never fired it. has all 4 barrels, belt buckle, and patch. Still has the paper between the cylinder and the frame.

It'll probably be staying that way in my safe as i can't bring myself to sell it or to shoot it. Its just too perfect.

very nice guns though, i personally have been very impressed with it.

Just paid over 1000 bucks for the .357 pack with all four barrels.

But I shoot it....a LOT!

Dans are argueably among the most accurate double action revolvers ever made. They offered a wide variety of front sites which can be changed out with one screw being turned out. They are able to shoot "Ruger Only" loads without a problem. The versatility is nice with barrels being able to be switched out to the desired barrel/cylinder gap in several minutes. Parts were, and I believe once again after a fire at DWCZ, available. I know that the rear sight blade on the later generation of rear sights could be changed out also to a narrow notch one of .080 which gave an almost rifle like sight picture. The single action trigger pull is excellent with the DA being longer than Smiths. They are known for their Python-like gloss deep blue finish, but they also have had issues with the frame parts turning a plum color due to salts in the steel of some of the runs. The Palmer guns for the most part are fine, the issues they did have were on guns that by now had been recified long ago. Palmer gun owners who also own Monson will tell you there is no difference, from what I have experienced. I would not say they are inferior to Taurus.....
