Hi Wesson folks ! I’m Pete from frozen Maine and I just bought my first DW revolver. I have many years shooting, reloading and gunsmithing experience but know nothing about DW other than their dominance in professional competition. I just bought a virtually new 5 inch .357 Mag that was built in Palmer, MA and don’t even know what model it is. Serial # is S0088**. It does not have a changeable barrel which I actually like. I paid a very reasonable $525 for it at Cabela’s. I’m looking forward to shooting her (very) shortly, as soon as I can load up some ammo in fact. Any information would be most welcomed !!

Welcome to the Forum!

I’m sure you get some comments from those who know more about it than me.

Welcome to the DWF!  Sounds like a Model 15-2 fixed barrel….

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

Hmmm, is it stainless ?

I’ve got a Palmer 3″ blue FB that is B0043**, so your “S” s/n prefix makes me think it’s a model 715.

dwf-welcome to the dwf
