Dan-Wesson-1.jpgImage Enlarger

I’m a longtime Smith and Wesson owner/shooter but have been interested in Dan Wesson’s for years.  I recently found a 15-2 8VH on GunBroker and decided it was time to scratch the itch.  After getting the shroud off (a challenge taking several days and an order from EWK Custom) I cleaned it up, reinstalled the barrel and took it to the range today.  Got to say I like the way it shoots.  First five rounds went into about 3″ off hand at 25 yards.  Sweet trigger!  Rear sight was kind of loose, and I am still figuring out how to adjust it.  Also the large stock Dan Wesson grips, while pretty, are not as comfortable as I’d like.  The revolver came with a pair of wooden Hogue grips like I have on many of my Smiths.  Unfortunately the grip screw head is larger than the mounting hole in the grips so it will be off to Ace to find an 8-32 cap screw with a smaller head.  I could ream out the hole but I’d rather not – I’m not the handiest guy with power tools embarassed.  I was able to ring a 250 yd gong off-hand with a 125g handload (after 9 sighting shots).  Hit it with my last round.  Anyway I am looking forward to more range time with this Dan Wesson!
