You don't see many cut down Krags that look that nice. In the 1920s-30s, the DCM (CMP) sold those for $5 each.

Yeah, before the 60s you could get various mil-surplus guns from DCM/NRA/etc. for under $20. My father got several Springfields and an M1 carbine. As I recall the bolts were under $10 and the carbine was $13. I still have one of the Springfields he had sporterized.

I have an M1911 from 1918 that was overhauled at Augusta Arsenal between the wars and put into storage until it was sold by the DCM in the 1950s for $17.00 Still hasn't been fired, and I have the paperwork from the DCM and Railway Express that came with it.

I'd keep the Dan Wesson, they are unappreciated guns, very accurate due to the lock up mechanism. Just be careful threading the barrels on and don't over tighten...and under tighten. It's good to check the cylinder to barrel gap after a few rounds.

I had a Dan Wesson 357 Super Mag, which had the most beautiful blueing job you've ever seen, equal to or better than a Colt Python. Hand loads of 158 grain bullets at over 1600 FPS, still within pressure.

You don't see many large frame 22LR revolvers, keep it and enjoy.

Here's my DW 357, it used to be a satin finish, but couldn't resist not polishing it.

Okay, I'll give you the $17 for it if you pay for shipping.

That was the other thing my dad bought for like $10 - a Remington Rand WWII era 1911.

I used to have a DW .44 Mag with porting.

Most accurate revolver I ever owned. Shot 0.5" groups at 25 yards. As you said the lockup is good, but I think also the tensioning of the barrel by the shroud had a major impact on the accuracy of the gun.

Mine had a light hammer blow and they fixed that. But I used it in pin shooting and it sometimes also had a problem with trigger reset IIRC (that was about 25 years ago).

Don't know about the others, but from what I've seen in the past on the Dan Wesson, that's a pretty fair price, maybe more than fair. With the extra barrels I've seen them on Gunbroker at just over a thousand bucks.

Agreed. That is more than fair. I'd be on that deal like white on rice on a paper plate in a snowstorm.

New gun day...

Latest addition to the WWII collection a G43, or Hitlers Garand. The rest are out of my price bracket, G41, SVT38, Johnson...all going for north of $4k...some well north of that.

Here is a standard internet pic.
