Hi everyone, never owned one till now, shot my friends DW 357 alot years ago and always wanted one, but…life and Ruger, S&W, and others always seemed to get into the way of me owning one.

Found a mechanic special at a pawn shop for 400, “loose barrel ” big-grin put it on lay away and going to bank to.orrow and get the cash and pick it up on Tuesday.

It’s a 44 mag, 6 in “loose” barrel  Blued, no papers or parts…good enough for me, ordered a tool from EKW, Should be shooting it by the weekend.

Glad to be here and be a member…

Paul

Nut is loose, I turned it slightly with fingernail while at pawn shop, so I think the nut is just loose but they knew nothing about gun. I’ll find out Tues.

Thanks for the welcome, my profile settings are not available so I have to wait for admin to check things out, dont have many capabilities in the site right now.

I think in order to buy or sell in the classified section you have to have 6 post and that is the only restriction that I’ve noticed.

Thanks all, here is the DW44 at home, repaired roll pin and then gave her a massage to get that nasty pawn goo off. Little Barney on the frame too
