I am developing a new obsession for Dan Wesson revolver.

This is my new goal!

The cool thing I have always liked about this is the huge slad side barrel that I imagine cannot be too hard to manufacture. Anyone got any idea where I should start?

Good luck in your search. I have a couple, first is a 357 maximum and the second is a rare 445 hunter pack

Excellent revolvers you got there! I want those too! But of course the PPC is on the top of the list haha. They are so rare that gunbroker only has 1 record. And its just for the barrel. Maybe its time I CNC my own barrel shroud.

The way they'd do it in the old days was:
1. start with a 1.5" diameter round stock
2. drill through a hole for the barrel insert
3. drill and locate the barrel pin
4. tap the front for the barrel nut
5. screw barrel in and figure out where to make your side cuts
4. screw it out and mill off the sides
5. mill the bottom to fit the underlug you're going to fit
6. mill the top to fit the sighting rib
7. taper the rear of the barrel shroud close to the width of the frame
8. mill out the cutout for the ejector rod
9. mill out the underlug from stock
10. drill, tap, and attach underlug to barrel shroud
11. Locate a sight rib
12. drill, tap and attach sight rib to barrel shroud...not to the frame

It is actually easier than making and installing a bull barrel on a S&W

Did you check "completed" auctions?

You might be able to find one that didn't sell and contact the sell to see if they still have it.

Good luck.

+1....

Also, gunbroker deletes old auctions so there wouldnt be a record (I think past 1 year).
