It’s been 14 years since I sold my last Dan Wesson (15-2) here in the classifieds.  
So, lately I convinced myself that I “needed” a 6” new Colt Python.  I went to my local gun store and handled one.  I had one many years ago and this one wasn’t ringing any bells.  Especially at $1500.  I read up on it’s shortcomings and at the very least new sights were in order driving the price higher.

Then I noticed the used guns.  A stainless DW 44mag with an 8” barrel, and a 715 also with an 8” hv barrel.  Both on consignment.  As I was handling the 715 the salesman mentioned it comes with an another barrel too.  I asked to see it and out comes the original box, 2 more grips and the factory tool.  The extra barrel is a 4” hv later production.  The 715 is a Monson gun.  Better than a new Python(?) And only 2/3’s the price.

I'm not sure but if the price is right I would snag it up! Extra barrel is worth $300 to $400. $1000 is a bargain with extra grips, box and tool. It looks to be in good shape and original box and tool also!
