Dan Wesson barrels & shrouds

I need to know if the new style barrels (model 15) will fit the old porkchop style (model 14, flush nut). I think its a 14, has fixed rear sight. Thanks




If yoy really want to, "do it".

Sorry, but the old "pork chop" barrel receivers will not work with the newer style barrels.

DW barrels

Evidently, I have a model 12 with porkchop style shroud, and flush fitting barrel nut. I was mislead on DW models. Anyhow, I still want a 10" barrel & shroud. Grizer

Watch for old DW parts at gunshows and on eBay, sometimes they will show up on Gunbroker as well.

DW BARRELS

Hi again, I now know exactly what I have, (after a lot of good guesses, by many). A model 14, 357, porkchop style shroud with flush barrel nut. Made in Monson Mass, 1971-74. Only difference was adjustable rear sight on model 15.
Wonder what the difference between old and new style barrels, (other than tang on shroud,holds crane in), threads, length or both?
I found a 1974 Guns and Ammo Annual (in my clutter) that lists all DW's at that time, (models 11, 12, 14, and 15). The 14 was $89.95 in satin blue, (the good old days, maybe they are good because they are gone).
By the way, this annual has the complete Homer S. Powley papers, old rifle shooters will know who he is.
Thanks for your information and comments.

The old style shrounds covered the end of the cylinder crane and may have helped to retain the crane (I've never seen the insides of the old style). The new shrouds do not have this feature as the frame was enlarged to enclose the crane.

DW dogleg, porkchop style shroud

I've got the parts in front of me, the tang is the only thing that holds crane in. DB at Numrich said barrells are same for 14 & 15. I guess I'll buy one on e-bay, just to try it. Thanks guys.
