Decided to try my 6 in. 15-2 barrel on my 15-1 DW while I’m trying to analyze some problems with the original 5 3/4 in. barrel. The first barrel nut seats in the recessed shroud as intended, and the second merely protects the extra 1/4 in. of exposed threads beyond the shroud. Kind of a cool retro look.IMG_1160.jpgImage Enlarger

Yes, it occurs to me that this is indeed a FrankenDan revolver. Frame from 1974, barrel from 1975, and grip from around 1980 or so. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it looks really cool. Shoots great!! No worse than mounting a 15-2 or later barrel assembly on a pork chop frame with an adaptor.

It looks like the barrel is not screwed all the way in.

It does kinda create that illusion I guess. I just feel that the extra barrel nut looks better than the leftover 1/4″ of exposed threads sticking out. Gap is set at .004, and shows no evidence of movement after a hundred rounds or so.

I know what. You need a A-2 Bird cage on it. I don’t know if EWK still sells those. I have one on my 15″ barrel. Most gun guys can’t believe it. This is an 8″ barrel in this pic.Nikondwfmaster9ABZ.jpgImage Enlarger

Gotta admit the A-2 Bird cage gives it an interesting look alright. Not sure it’s my style, but thanks for making me aware of it.

That looks like my model 15, this came to me wearing a W12 BA. At first I thought it was supposed to be that way. But research shortly after told me that the 15’s came with the flush mounted nuts. 

The nut is fluted on the end & is removed with the same size wrench as the W12’s.

Yet when I removed it, it has notches in it like a normal 15-2 style nut! I have yet to see another nut like this one, and at this point, I’m not sure if it’s a DW part or one someone made.

Great looking Model 15 in post 9! Very interesting barrel nut. It looks like it can be used on either a pork chop or a standard shroud.

Also, that bird cage thing is growing on me. Do you have a photo of it off the gun? Do you simply hand tighten it, or is there a special tool?
