Sold a couple of pistols I didn't really want in the last couple of weeks and turned them into this one. I've owned a couple of Dan Wesson 22's in the past but sold them off to get something else. This one looks pretty much like new, and having a 4" barrel, appeals to me more than the 6" ones I'd had before (I have a thing for 4" guns). Made in the Monson plant, in the late 70's as best I can determine from the S/N (13327) and information on the DW forum. The ones I've had shot like gangbusters. I expect this one to do the same. About the only problem with them is they are BIG and HEAVY for a 22. They're more the size of an "L" frame than a "K".
