I shared a first-year Dan Wesson set last time, here is the one I actually shoot. It has the same lengths (2.5", 4", 6" and 8") but also additional longer 15" and 10" barrels:

I like your idea of the round case within another case to store the barrels more compactly and yet safely.

I must agree, that's a cool idea. As long as they don't rub against each other.

BTW, where did the 15" BA come from?

Very nice. That 21/2" is a very scarce Heavy only. No vent. No sloping muzzle of the standard version. You now need the unicorn 12". The least common of the longer barrels. My favorite is the 10". The extra sight radius means fabulous accuracy but the the muzzle doesn't waver without being supported like the longer barrels. Used for IHMSA, they were rested on the calf while laying feet first towards the target. Using a leather apron to protect against cylinder gap blast.

That’s some good info, yes I am hunting for the 12” next. I’ve gotten lucky finding these barrels, I traded across forums for them. I almost got sucked into paying ridiculous prices for them on eBay when I started but withheld in sake of the hunt

Meh, he's a youngster, I doubt he feels a thing. big-grin

Muay, thanks for the 'Tube links to your content. I believe you are one of the first here to post your YT content, and I must say it's refreshing to see an unbiased opinion from someone who is clearly new to the whole DW platform, but not new to guns. occasion

From the half dozen videos I've seen thus far, you don't disappoint. 

Glad you joined here, and I hope you find our "potentially outdated" forum based oasis as a factual spot for accurate info on DW's. Ask any questions, we will be here to help/answer.
