I have a DW 44mag with 2″,4″,6″, 8″ barrel shrouds.

I bought a 445 Supermag with a 10″ barrel.

I would like to use any of the barre/shroud combos on either gun.

The problem is with the shrouds cutout for the ejector rod. I contacted Dan Wesson and was given a price to mill the 44mag shrouds so the longer 445 ejector rod would fit.

I measured the 44mag and the 445 supermag ejector rod and saw not a huge difference in the lenght. This made me wonder if I swapped a 44 mag ejector rod for the 445 rod in the 445 I would still have plenty of travel for case ejection and would not have to have the shrouds milled.

Am I missing something?

I’d try it and see how it works. You can just swap the rods and see what happens, nothing to loose.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

If a man designed it, and a man built it, then a man can fix it.

That would work but you may have to pull cases out of the 445 since they may not fully eject. Not a big deal.
