Currently my two DWs, the top one is a 715 that was made into a quasi pistol pack (tools, 8″ and 2″ barrels) I believe from the boxes that it came as a 6″. Just picked it up today off layaway.

The “back in black” 15 DW is out of my complete pistol pack.

The 715 is a little used with a good solid dragline and some hammer wear but well cared for (oops I dropped the 8″ barrel on concrete today by accident but was able to steel wool polish out most of the nip at the end)  but will make a good trail carry wesson. 

Anyone know why the serial number begins with “SD”?

I've actually been working on a theory on that subject. I guess I probably have compiled enough info to post what I've got. I'll do that.

Your 715 is a Monson gun, right?

Oh &…Cool Pics occasion

A lot of Monson serials for 7 series guns began with Sx where x is a letter which depends on caliber. I actually thought all of the stainless guns were serialed this way. Examples from my collection:

722 = SA…

715 = SD…

741 = SC…

744 = SB…

740 = SE…

Exceptions to the rule from my collection:

722M = 22MS… 

745 = 445S…

and my other 740 has only an E as a prefix.

All of these are Monson guns.

jimbob-

I just picked up on the Ying/Yang Cool

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Here's my Ying/Yang, a 15/715 3″ Fixed Barrel set.Laugh

I just brought home the 715 tonight, it feels great! I'm sure it will be as good of a shooter as the 15 is.

Not exactly the same calibers, but one is a .357, the other has the same numbers in a different order, so…close to a Ying-Yang. poke
