The pics are great, but I'm with my Bros, I need the story!

To the paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers:

if you find one...what's your plan?

So this revolver was presented to my Grandfather by Dan Wesson Arms in 1981, just before he retired from his job as Chief engineer. There are another 249 guns in this special production line which was used as in introduction to their new .44Mag. It was passed to my Grandmother after his death, and then was passed down to his oldest grandson, my older brother. My Grandfather was Paul E. Brouthers, who if you look through the Dan Wesson patent filings, was responsible for much of the Model 44. If anyone else has one of these limited production guns I would love to see them.

I have one of the engraved guns and one from the second run of non engraved dove gray guns.  This isn't the best pic, but it does show the pair.  Beautiful guns and its good to know your grandfather was the guy who made these possible.
