I was very fortunate when Bill visited the Forum a month ago with some items to sell that he sold me his Norwich Pistol Pack II.  I think it is missing a few items from the original pack that I have been trying to locate but with no luck.  I contacted Genny at Dan Wesson/CZ hoping that this being a Norwich Pack that maybe some items may still be around, but no luck.  My Pistol Pack II does not have the original Norwich instruction manual, the patch that came with it, and the cleaning rod kit.  Bill purchased this at a show from a distributor so maybe it never had them in it, there are no cutouts in the case for them.  If anyone has any of these items please let me know if you are willing to part with them, PM me (I am willing to pay for them). 

I will attach some pictures of the Pack for your viewing pleasure and also the items I think it is missing.  The items again that I think are missing are the instruction manual, patch, and cleaning rod kit.  It is a beautiful Pack and was really lucky to have purchased it, it is in flawless condition.  Thanks for looking and possibly helping locate these items.  The last three pictures may be the missing items.

Bill was a Dan Wesson collector that sold a few items here not long ago.  It was posted for all to see.  He had a rare 1 of 3 Nickel-Plated Pistol Pack that Kurt bought I believe and he posted pictures after he got it here on the Forum 1 of 3 DW produced Nickel 357 packs!! Dan Wesson Small Frame Revolvers Dan Wesson Forum.  I was fortunate to get this Pistol Pack II very few were ever made not sure how many.  Another member got his Dove Gray 1 of 250 44 Mag. They did not last long that is for sure.  I was very fortunate to purchase this pack but I think the Pack is missing the Blue Patch that is the picture, the Norwich Instruction Manual, and the Cleaning kit.  I would love to find them but it is going to be difficult, as I mentioned tried Genny at CZ since it was a Norwich Pack just before CZ took over so I thought maybe some items might still be hanging around but no luck.  There are not many of these packs and I thought maybe the more knowledgeable members might have some ideas and information.

Hmmmm I could figure that out from my texts with him to a certain extent, but probably not all of them.  I know he had a 44 centennial edition too.

I knew he had the 44 as he posted that all I knew he was selling were the three items I mentioned and the 44 which is now listed on Guns International.

I think that’s the only 4 I knew about too.  But when I spoke to Bill on. The phone he said he shipped out 6 guns with his one trip to his FFL.

Kurt:  Here is a picture of the decal, and again Scott thanks so much for your help.  Now looking for the patch, instruction manual, and cleaning rod kit.  The cleaning kit will probably be next to impossible to find.

Bob (Serva) told me several years ago that there were less than 25 of these packs made.  I've managed to round up 3 of them over the years - sold one and retained the other 2.  You were lucky to have had the opportunity to purchase that one - they're pretty scarce and rarely show up for sale.  It could be a long wait (years) before another one shows up again.

I wish we could interrogate Bob Serva at length. Chances of finding out answers to do many questions is getting slimmer every year. I just won another Norwich small frame First Issue. I love them. Has a Monson V12 BA . I will be on the hunt for some Norwich BAs. Hopefully First Issue ones but that is a longshot.

Congrats Charles!  Yes, the seller Bob is a really great guy.  Very pleasant and easy to speak with.  Be sure to post some pics when you get her.

If anyone has a spare Norwich Instruction Manual they could part with would be happy to purchase it.  Also, the blue Dan Wesson patch if anyone has one would love to get that also.   I know the pictured cleaning rods will be very difficult to find.  Thanks for everyone's help in advance.  I did get the blue decal from one of the members, I really appreciate it.  The items I am looking for are pictured above.  Thanks again!!
