A guy I work with traded me this, plus cash for a Beretta. I wanted a 44 mag revolver for a while and took the trade. I’ve researched for a while and can’t really find a value for the 4”, anyone able to help?

Wow!! You sure made out on that deal. The  Vent Heavy shroud 4″ barrel is the most highly sought. It looks in excellent shape. I would value it at 850 to 1050. More if you have tool and box. Twice the worth of a Beretta FS92 IMHO.

The Beretta is a great gun (I absolutely love my 92FS) but you came out on the best side of that trade, for sure. I’ll defer to Ole Dog on values because he knows these guns much better than most, but in my local travels, I haven’t run across a 744 for under $900 (online, maybe) in quite some time.

I am also new to Dan Wesson.  I acquired these two beauties, and was interested in the value.  I have the boxes, and they are sequential serial numbersIMG_0329.JPGImage Enlarger

High, low or sequencial serial numbers don’t mean much to Dan collectors IMHO. ANIB is a big deal as there are  not dozens on Gunbroker like Pythons. Monson is more highly regarded by some than Palmer. I am of the opinion that Norwich First Issue small frame guns are the finest made. I really like the sleek look of frame pins polished flush with the frame like all other fine Revolvers. Also the bead blasted top strap and shroud rib look like diamond dust. 1000 each is a reasonable top value.

I could say awesome about these three 44s but that’s an understatement.

I just have a question my friends husband passed away and he had a 357 long barrel that just says wesson firearms she hasn’t found paperwork yet but she is wondering if it’s worth much I think she said it’s stainless and 8 or 10 inch barrel ?

That would be a model 715 made in the Palmer, Mass. factory from 1991 to 1995. Condition, box, style of shroud,grips and tool have a bearing. There is a premium of 200 to 400 dollars for a 10 ” over an 8″.  Depending on these things it could range between $550 to 950 for an 8″ barrel.

My two 715’s look like they have never been fired.  Should they remain that way or do they deserve a trip to the range?  BTW, they are 357’s not 44’s and are from Monson.

Shoot one, keep one. The sequential serial numbers are not important, unless it is to you. I’ve never owned a safe queen; it’s just not for me.
