Model 15-2 8S. Standard shroud. Very nice. When ejecting cases keep the pointer and middle finger pushing the cylinder open through the frame to prevent the cylinder from closing while the ejector star is extended. Tilt the gun to the left. There is no cylinder release on the sideplate to prevent the star from scratching the sideplate. I see one already. You don’t want more. Almost all used Dans have them, usually incurred the first time they are used.

Is there a special barrel to use or are they all the same fit?

If you are asking about other barrel assemblies, you can put any of 4 styles of shroud over a barrel the same way. Standard, Vent, Heavy and Vent Heavy. And any of 7 lengths from 21/2″ to 15″.

Thanks ole dog I blundered that wording that’s exactly what I meant.  Been seeing so many names four different Barrel assemblies I wasn’t quite sure I really want to get 6 inch vented heavy underlug.  I have 5 different 357’s but this just became my favorite!! Thank you all for your help this is a nice forum

Take this advice to heart, and if you let someone else shoot it, remember to tell them as well. I made the mistake of letting my boss shoot my pristine, 15-2V and he put 2 scratches on the side. I was not happy.
