The S&W makes the Dan Wesson look blocky and industrial. But that's just me.

Good pair to have.

The DW's shoot excellent though, barrel changing for different uses is sure a Plus.

I had a DW 44 Mag 6" many years back. I loved that gun. :love: Sure was a "Tack Driver"! That was another one I shoulda' kept. :cry:

Nice pair ya got there.:bow:

I had the same DW myself back in '81. Bought new by me, three digit serial #. I put a 2X Leupold on it to hunt deer..."Tack Driver" is exactly accurate. Off a good rest @ 100 yds. and my hand load of 296 and a Sierra 240 gr. JHC, it would clover leaf all day....Dan Wesson revolvers are accurate as hell, and built to take constant punishment..without complaint.

Nice score on the 27. Beautiful handgun.

Looks to be in good shape too for being over 50 years old.

Those older S&W wheelguns are elegant. They are among my favorites.Very nice pair:beer::whiskey:
