Through a lucky series of personal connections I will soon acquire a nice Dan Wesson .357.

Here's a pic:



Does anyone know if there is a kit to set that gun up for .22 LR? If so, I'd appreciate a link.

Sorry to report that as versitile as the Dan Wesson Revolvers are, there is not a .22 conversion.

If there were to be such a kit, the DW would be the natural, but it would require a .22 cylinder properly indexed and timed for the gun, in addition to the .22 sub bbl.

Sorry to report that you have (In My Humble Opinion) the FINEST Revolver made!

But if you want to shoot .22, you need to find a DW 22 revolver!

Thanks Bigger_Hammer! I appreciate the information very much.

I'm going to buy the DW set on Saturday, 1/8 which means the Caliban will let me take it home on the 18th.

I'll have to make do with shooting my Springfield Armory M1911-A1 until then.

My grandfather has one of those sets in 100% unfired condition. How you figure something like that would be worth?

Thanks. I'll let you know what I paid for mine after I buy it tomorrow (Saturday, 1/9). I don't want to jinx the deal. I haven't found any complete sets like this on auctionarms, gunbroker, etc. so I'm paying the guy what he's asking and covering the transfer expenses.

Here in Cali you have to do a private transfer through a dealer, who extracts a fee plus the $14 or so for the state Dealer's Record Of Sale (DROS). And the transfer dealer has to hold at least the frame for 10 days before I can take possession.

I'm sure a 100% unfired set will be worth more than I'm paying.
