Hey fellow forumers,

I’ve been thinking about buying a DW 22LR and I had a couple of questions before I plunk down the cash.

  1. Do the DW 22’s have the barrel stretched between two fixed points  accuracy advantage as the .357 ect or was that just marketing hype?
  2. Did DW ever make a blued 22LR with a 8″ or 10″ full bottom lug barrel? 
  3. Has anyone ever seen a center fire conversion of a 22LR DW? I’ve got a Pre Model 17 S&W in Harvey 224 K-Chuk and I think it would be fun to have something like that in a 10″ DW.

Thanks for all the time/work you guys have devoted to making this a great source of DW knowledge.

TIA

1) yes.  Same frame style etc as the 357.  Different threads on barrels.

2)  I don’t have a VH8 in .22, but I’m sure they made them. I bought my .22 with VH4 and much latter bought a NIB VH6 barrel assembly for it.  I have a VH8 barrel assembly for the 357; the shroud fits on the 22 frame with a 22 barrel.

DW did make a 10″ silhouette single action only version of the blued 22 LR with full heavy vent.  It had a ram on the side of the barrell.

Yes Dan Wesson made 8”VH barrel/shrouds for 22LR revolvers. I purchased a Dan with the 8” VH barrel/shroud back in the 80’s. I practice with the 22LR revolver to save on cost. I also have an 8” VH model 15-2. Many people think the 8”VH barrel is over kill for a 22LR. Let me just say when plate shooting double action with my Dan I can drop plates as fast as a semi-auto. The reason, the gun does not move due to the barrel weight. I hunt with both guns also.
