Colt Lawman .357 4". This one's got more miles under it's grips than the snubby does, but still shoots great.


Dan Wesson .375 SuperMag, wearing an 8" slotted vent shroud & an excellent trigger feel!



Here is "Lil' Dan", a 5-shot snubby chambered for .38+P

Charger Fan, you have some truly pretty wheel guns there - and you take good pix as well. As far as dredging up an old thread - there is no time limit for good gun porn...

Thanks for the compliment, NGIB. You may have spoken a little soon though, regarding the "pretty guns"...for here is a bunch of Dan Wesson Porkchops! To most folks, this is a face only a mother could love. LOL!

Here's a group of five...



...and one straggler that came late to the party.

There was a day, when like most people, I considered these an ugly duckling. But ownership will melt even the coldest of hearts & today I really cherish these old guns.
The Porkchop style was the starting point for the Dan Wesson gun company. As with any fledgling endeavor, there is bound to be a few "adjustments" needing to be made before a perfect combo is reached. Part of the appeal to me is that a person can literally watch the progression of design & function, with each new 'Chop that comes along.

The oldest of the group is a pair of sequentially numbered 2-digit twins...I named Ed & Fred. These two are Model 12 .357 Magnum & were made in 1970, right at the beginning of the Dan Wesson Arms company story...and as of today, remain unfired.




Ed & Fred also came with some baggage. Their very own hard cases & a bunch-o-barrels, tools, spare grip & an inletted grip blank to whittle yourself...the first Dan Wesson "Pistol Pac". The barrels on the red shirt are extras & not part of the Pac's.

This one's a service revolver Model D11, chambered in .38 Special, with fixed sights & wearing a matte finish. This was also available in the more common .357 Mag.



Here's a Model W12 chambered in .357 Mag. A target revolver, with adjustable sights & wearing the most flawless, glossy bluing of the bunch.



Here is a Model 14 service revolver, chambered in .38 Special. As part of the DW evolution, the main outward difference is the flush mounted barrel nut. These were also more commonly available in .357 Magnum.

Those last three also came with some baggage, albeit not nearly as schnazzy.



The logo of the period, on the box tops.



This is my latest 'Chop arrival (same one pictured with the group shot). A Model 15 "no dash" chambered in .357 Magnum, this time wearing more comfortable shooting attire.

What a great collection! A thing of beauty must be shared. Can't wait to get a calendar with maybe one or two of those on it!
