I found this excellent condition 15-2 VH-8 .357 today at my local shop for $399 so I had to take it home. Here it is pictured with my DW 15-2 6 inch. They had another excellent condition DW 15-2 with a 6 inch barrel in 38. Special for $349. I don’t know anything about the .38 Specials so I left that one behind.

After some quick research that 38 Special appears to be a DW 9-2. I can’t even find a pic of it with a 6 inch barrel. Are these harder to find than the Model 15’s. Im wondering if I should go back tomorrow and buy it.

I’ve been looking for a 9-2 for years (adjustable sight); yes, you should go get it.

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

I went back and upon closer inspection it is a Palmer manufactured Wesson Firearms 38 Special with a fixed 6 inch barrel. The serial number on the frame begins with a 38 B001XXX and the barrel is marked 38 SPL CTG but the cylinder accepted both .357 and 38 Spl. snap caps. Hogue grips and very nice bluing with just a coupe specks of surface rust. I didn’t know what to make of it so I left again to come home and do some more research.

It would be worth the $349, even it the cylinder is reamed to 357 length.
