It’s hard to believe that it’s once again time for the annual DWF Calendar contest!  In an effort to increase participation this year there will be awards for the top 3 photos.

  • 1st Place – Dan’s Club membership and free calendar
  • 2nd Place – 2 year site support and free calendar
  • 3rd Place – 1 year site support and free calendar

If the winners are already site supporters they will have their membership extended.

To enter please upload your photos to this topic.   You are welcome to post your submissions to this topic inspiring others to take some cool photos as well.

Here are the ground rules:

  1. All photos entered into the contest must be posted to this topic.
  2. Each member can submit up to 5 photos.
  3. Do not submit photos that were featured in a previous calendar.
  4. Deadline for photo submissions is October 31. 
  5. Photos must feature Dan Wesson Revolver’s, 1911’s and/or accessories.  Mitchell’s and High Standard’s can also be included but a Dan Wesson must also be in the picture.
  6. List model, caliber and place of manufacture.
  7. List any modifications made to the gun, if any.

When submitting your entries please create a separate post for each photo. This year I will be implementing a post rating system which will require individual posts for each photo.  Please use the following naming convention when naming your photo files:

UserName_Model_EntryNumber.jpg  An example would be Jody_745_01.jpg

By submitting a photo you are agreeing to all the rules and regulations outlined on the Calendar Contest Page.

Thanks!

Jody

Whoops! I don’t know why I was calling them cuts. I double checked the invoice from Bob at DW and he called them “SIL slots”. Thanks for the correction!

Old and new style together.

It is my Dan Wesson 715 in .357mag with 8“ Barrel from Palmer and a Ruger Old Army Cap and Ball Revolver with 7,5“ Barrel.
Both in stainless.

Does not meet the intent of only DWs and Mitchell/ High Standard: “Photos must feature Dan Wesson Revolver’s, 1911’s and/or accessories. Mitchell’s and High Standard’s can also be included but a Dan Wesson must also be in the picture.”  but the picture is a good one… rwsem

This photo I like very much-I call It the almost perfect mirror. For this picture I lent a second Dan by a friend. This are both Model 715 .357 mags by Palmer with 8“ barrels.

So this is my 5. and last picture. It is my complete Dan Wesson Part collection (please belive me-It is not easy to geht these parts here in Germany)

It‘s my Dan Wesson Model 715 pistol pack in .357mag by Palmer, some selfmade very small grips, the selfmade shroud, speedloaders, holsters and a burris mount. I really like this gun.
