Dan Wesson Gun Holsters

Dan Wesson Firearms (DW), part of the CZ corporate group, is a manufacturer of handguns in the United States. The corporate headquarter is in Kansas City, Kansas, service and plant in Norwich, New York. Dan Wesson is known for its revolver expertise and for some types of ammunition it has introduced over the years.

Daniel B. Wesson II (1916–1978) was the great-grandson of one of the founders of Smith & Wesson Company in which he worked from 1938 until 1963. He had a degree in Material Science and Metallurgy and controlled the quality of his production strictly.

The first interchangeable barrel pistol produced was the W12, or the Dan Wesson Model 12 which was chambered in .357 Magnum. The barrels and shrouds for this model were interchangeable and used an exposed nut on the muzzle end to secure the barrel and shroud. The shrouds on these early models had an elongated flange which helped to center the barrel and properly secure it. Later, this design was refined into the Model 15 which still used the flanged barrel assemblies, but which had the nut recessed inside the flange in order to give the pistol a more conventionally finished look. Further refinements to the model 15 resulted in the Model 15-2 which is the most well known as well as the best selling Dan Wesson model. The 15-2 used a roll pin inserted into the frame as a centering dowel combined with a precisely drilled hole in the shroud assembly to facilitate proper shroud centering and alignment, thus eliminating the flanged barrel shrouds. The 15-2 also introduced more barrel offerings, including lengths of 2.5, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 15 inches, venting, ribbed shrouds, shrouds with full underlugs, and plain solid shrouds. The pistols could be ordered as "Pistol Pacs" with 3 (initially) and later 4 (or more) barrels shipped inside a fiberglass briefcase with barrel changing tool and clearance gauges; however, many pistols were sold with only one barrel- though owners could choose to purchase other barrels later.
