Reassembly Question

I have acquired a Dan Wesson .357 revolver that was literally put away wet. Someone removed the rust with steel wool and all of the bluing was gone. I figured it was a good project gun and could be made into a good shooter.

The revolver was completely disassembled, cleaned, rust removed and polished where appropriate. Quite a few hours were invested to rmove most of the pitting and polish all of the parts. I degreased and re-blued the gun this afternoon and set about to reassemble it. Everything went very well until I reassembled the cylinder and crane.

The cylinder slides back and forth on the crane shaft. All of the parts are there and assembled as per the drawings in the manual and the same as I remember it coming apart. It may be something ridiculously simple that I'm too tired to see. Does any one have any ideas or suggestions?

While I'm posting, I went to the Numrich website and see a model 14 and a model 15. How are these different?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Mark

Re: Reassembly Question

It becomes obvious when the crane and cylinder are installed in the frame......the cylinder is captured by the frame.

If anyone has other information, please let me know.

I am still curious about the differences in the models 14 and 15.

Thanks,

Re: Reassembly Question

According to my Blue Book, the 14's had fixed sights; the 15's, adjustable.

Re: Reassembly Question

Hi Dave,

Both of these have adjustable rear sights however, each have slightly different front sights:



I think both of these are 15s as far as I have been able to tell.

Thanks for your reply.

Re: Reassembly Question

You're welcome. The noninterchangeable front sight indicates an older M15, but I can't tell exactly when the newer style was introduced.
