    If someone is recoil sensitive THIS is the gun for them. Weighs in at just under 3 pounds and is deadly accurate. It's like shooting a bb gun but no fliers.

    I LOVE THIS GUN !

    Is that new production or older used gun? Is it a 6 or 10 shooter? It's a nice looking revolver.

    Nice. Also a great trainer for shooting newbies.

    Not just for newbies. Hittin' bottle caps at 7 yards is fun for all :)

    But yeah, a gun like this gives newbies the confidence and positive reinforcement to continue on

    Nice purchase . I bought mine back in '78 as I already had a DW 15-2 and 44mag . Future wife bought a 15-2 also after shooting mine on a first date . Nice to have a revolver that feels so much like a centerfire model trigger included .

    That is very nice. I did not remember them making one in .22. I do remember oohi-ing and ahh-ing over the .357 cased kits with multiple barrels as a kid. They were the definition of "cool."

    Just curious - where was that made? Monson, Palmer, Norwich?
    I have a couple 15-2's (6" and 8"), and I love .22s. I'd have a hard time not buying one like yours if I came across one.

    Congrats on a wonderful revolver!
    I have a Monson 722 HV 8” I bought new in the mid 80’s I used it for IHMSA.

    The op's was made in Monson Massachusetts.

    Very nice, btw!! I'm a huge DW fan and own 2 (working on a 3rd & 4th) .357s and 1 .44mag... All made in Monson Mass (most desirable).
