It has arrived, and it’s perfect!!  It’s now my favorite of my small (but growing) DW collection.  Many thanks to Bill R. For the opportunity to purchase!!!

You are certainly on a roll here, Kurt.  I would welcome a few more close-up pics of that set, please - it isn't something you ever see.

This gun pack is pretty much perfect.  The seller said he has fired 2 cylinders worth of ammo thru it…12 shots. It has no cylinder drag lines.  He said he bought it at a gun show in Colorado from a DW rep.  The rep said they were testing the market to see how well the 3 nickel packs sell to decide whether to continue producing nickel versions.  He also bought a nickel .44 that same weekend from that rep.  He said it was a couple years before CZ bought DW company.  I guess that means around 2002-2003?  He said he paid $1600 for this pack back then.

A couple of years is 2 or is it more? It appears to be a pre 1986 Monson gun. Very pretty.

Looks excellent!!!!  I was fortunate too, Bill sold me a fairly rare 357 Pistol Pack II which I felt very grateful to get.  Still looking for a nice 740 Super Mag or a Model 40 Super Mag..

That’s what Bill told me, but maybe his memory is off by a few years?  Or DW had this pistol laying around a few years before giving it the nickel plating and selling?   Based upon this pistol’s serial 25774x and the DWF Serial Registry, it could be a 79-81 manufacture date.

No matter to me, I’m happy to have it!

I could never ever ever keep it in that nice of shape - I'd have to shoot it.  If this is something you find deep down you just can't bring yourself to do, I will be there for you and come down and put a few thousand down the pipe for ya.  You can thank me later.  😉

Absolutely gorgeous,  I’m thinking of selling my 3”fixed barrel to upgrade to a 715 pack.
