There is a Dan Wesson Coyote .22 lr rifle that crops up from time to time, and a one off custom rifle/carbine built on a 15-2 sometimes shows up as well.

Guys, if you're going to talk about a gun For Sale someplace, POST A LINK

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

That's the one I was thinking of, the seller has possibly set a record for the most pictures to sell one gun. There's a lot of good work there, it looks well thought out and executed, and it's been shot a fair amount. I'm hoping that the pictures are showing a lot of weird reflections and that the finish is not as bad as it looks.

Since that is a custom job, it's going to be hard to determine a value. Personally, I wouldn't pay the $1200 asking price, but I would entertain a price in the $700-800 range.

Judging by the nicks on the side cover, whoever has been shooting that sure has a problem letting go of the ejector rod before he closes the cylinder.lol2 Since this is technically the area for photos of unique DW's, I'm posting a few pics from the auction.

I see the disclaimer on the auction regarding safety glasses.  I was thinking having your forearm/hand out in front of the cylinder would need some type of additional protection from powder gases and residue.

 

I like the concept but would be leery about shooting it.

Coop- This is actually not our first discussion on this gun, previous one was over a year ago, and those same points came up then. I agree that putting your arm alongside a B/C gap is a little scary. My feeling on this gun is that it's unique, interesting, but at the end of the day it's a "solution looking for a problem". 

I admire the creativity, but the rationale for this gun escapes me

that's a nice looking .22. did DW actually manufaturer these or just brand them?

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

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

I believe they were built to Dan Wesson spec, by Inter arms in the Philippines. Barrel and Receiver have only Dan Wesson markings, the end cap on the pistol grip on the stock is marked Inter arms, Philippines.

We covered the coyote once before--if I remember right I was able to find the original model was an Armscor m1500 with DW markings.

Im sorry, You are correct it says Armscor on the stock. Not Inter Arms. Not sure where I came up with that. Past my bed time I guess.

I realize these DW rifles are rare, but $1300 for what was a $200 rifle? Come on.

 

Someone enlighten me on the Coyote.

Seems pretty silly to spend that money on a .22 lr bolt action rifle. There has been one that floated around the auction sites that had been reportedly a special one made for Bob Serva, who owned DW at the time.

I have many better places to spend that kind of money before I ever consider that one.

In fact, I don't have that kind of $$$ to spend on ANY gun.

Well just my thoughts on the subject. A coyote rifle. Yes it's rare, yes I would love to add one to the collection. Not at that amount of money if I had won the lottery.

Nice rifle but way out of line on the price, I picked one up a year or so ago with the box for a lot less than half of what this guy is asking.

These have sold on Gunbroker in the 450-600.00 range when they have come up which isn't very often.

I think I may have seen 4 or 5 in the last 6 years.
