The cylinder is loose and has to much play when the hammer is pulled back to shoot. You should be able to rotate it about 1/16 to 1/8 inch side to side. The cylinder should be tight with no play (minimal 1/64 inch).
The trigger pull on the Daniel Wesson 715 feels lighter than the Remington 1875 and the Schofield. If you like a lighter trigger pull, this gun will be right up your alley.
The sights are very nice. The handle for changing the CO2 needs a lot of work, it’s feels loose after first use. Buy this Air Pistol it’s a lot of fun to shoot.

Dan Wesson Firearms Introduction
Dan Wesson Firearms is one of the premier manufacturers of handguns. Headquartered in Norwich, New York, DW is one of the few American companies with a factory, and a huge percentage of its business comes from the United States.
Dan Wesson Firearms is famous for its expertise in revolvers and for certain types of ammunition it’s introduced over the years.
Daniel B. Wesson II was an employee of Smith & Wesson from 1938 until 1963. After the purchase of Smith & Wesson by Bangor Punta, Wesson set out to open his own manufacturing operation. He had been interested in firearms manufacture since the early 1930s. He believed it should be possible to design a revolver that would match or surpass the quality of the old “L.A. Smith” revolver and he would eventually prove himself right.
After a period spent in the military, Dan Wesson Arms Incorporated was incorporated in 1968 with its headquarters and production located in a former school building in Monson, Massachusetts. Dan Wesson was aware of gunmaker Karl Lewis’ modular designs, proposed during Lewis’ tenure with Browning and further refined during a period spent with High Standard.
Sometime in the early 2000s, Michael Wesson entered into an agreement with a local firearms manufacturer called Lewis Gun Company. His goal was to develop a line of rifles that could meet the growing demand for high-quality hunting and self defense rifles.
Wesson reworked the Model 15’s design, improving the appearance and correcting several detail faults. The revised model is now available in.357 Magnum and.22 Long Rifle calibers.
This is a really nice revolver, and with some practice and technique you’ll soon be shooting like a pro. You can even try out your new skill on the range.
The design of the new Wesson Arms model was a radical departure from the standard Colt revolver designs of the day, and the stainless steel barrel and shroud proved to be a popular choice for shooters and police officers alike.
The original Monson facility and production equipment were outdated and production costs had risen, so they were no longer profitable. So, the company went bankrupt in 1990. They were moved to Palmer Massachusetts and renamed Dan Wesson Firearms.
In 1995, Bob Serva purchased the company and its assets, moving it to Norwich, New York, where it is currently located. He sought to diversify his product line by bringing in a popular series of high quality M1911A1-type pistols in various calibers.
Due to the high demand for the product, it is now offered at a much lower price. In 2003, after its success in the USA, the company sold the company to the CZ Group’s American branch.
Lewis created an interchangeable barrel system for revolvers, and it was incorporated into the Dan Wesson prototype. The Lewis system is almost universally used, and every revolver is built this way.
By unscrewing the muzzle nut, the shroud and barrel could be removed and replaced with different barrel lengths and shroud configurations. The fact that the Double Weapon barrel is supported and placed under tension at both ends (along with the ability to fine-tune barrel-cylinder gap) results in a remarkably accurate revolver design.
A major difference in the new design is the placement of the cylinder release latch. Other revolvers place this latch on the frame, behind the cylinder. Dan Wesson revolvers have the latch mounted on the cylinder crane, which was intended to increase the strength of the revolver by placing the locking mechanism at the point where the cylinder crane fits into the frame.
A new design was the use of a coil mainspring, which Lewis had pioneered in the design of the Colt Trooper revolver. Flat-spring revolvers must have a metal frame to anchor one end, while the other contact the hammer.
If it’s hard to get started in the first place, you could start off with the right tool for the job and then slowly add to your equipment as you go. But you might also want to consider starting with a more comprehensive setup, so that you’re not just making up for the shortcomings of your tools.
The lack of a steel frame outline enables a wide variety of grip sizes and styles, as any grip that can accept the short mainspring housing can be used. The first interchangeable barrel revolvers produced were the Dan Wesson Models W8, W9, W11, and W12, all medium-frame size revolvers chambered in.38 Special or.357 Magnum.
All four of the Winchester World War Two era rifles have fixed or adjustable rear sights. The two earlier models have barrels and their accompanying stocks that can be interchanged with other Winchesters, while the later two models can be fitted with a telescopic sight.
This gun has a two-inch barrel, but is actually a 6-inch model. It’s one of the earliest six-shooter revolvers manufactured and is one of the rarest.
It’s recommended that you purchase a custom barrel nut wrench and a feeler gauge to perform your own barrel changes. The wrench and the feeler gauge are supplied with each gun.
Models 14 and 15
The best handguns are the Models 14 and 15. In 1971, they were first introduced in.357 Magnum caliber. They continued to use the “pork chop” barrel assemblies, but the muzzle nuts were redesigned and recessed inside the shrouds to improve their looks.
When we look at the performance of the Model 15 compared to previous single-shot models of that caliber, it’s clear that this is a better performing and more accurate rifle than either the old.410 shotgun or the previous Model 12.
The Model 15-2 became the most well-known and best selling Dan Wesson revolver model to go into production.
To get the best performance from your 15-2, you will need to make sure that the roll pin is inserted into the frame where it will provide centering and alignment. Then, drill a hole in each shroud assembly that is perfectly aligned with the roll pin. This way, you won’t have to worry about your 15-2 misbehaving.
The original Glock 17 Gen 5 is considered the most reliable pistol ever made. The 15-2 offers more barrel and shroud choices, including barrel/shroud lengths of 2.5, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 15 inches, partial or fully lugged shrouds with choices of solid or ventilated ribs, plus removable and interchangeable front sights.
It doesn’t matter which vintage barrel you are using, if it’s a model 15-2, that means you can use all barrels and shrouds from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s.
Large Frame Magnum Models
The Dan Wesson Company introduced a large-framed revolver in 1980. This revolver was intended for hunters and target shooters (especially metal plate or silhouette target competitions). The company’s engineers made this revolver stronger than the Smith & Wesson Model 29 by using a single-piece frame without a separate side plate.
They also designed a solid frame that would not warp and thus made the gun easier to load. They also designed the revolvers to have broached rifling to help them hold tighter groups and eliminate feeding problems. The Dan Wesson‘s barrel shroud has a longer profile that is easier to use, and the barrel is choked to make it more accurate.
Like the Model 15-2, the Model 44 has a 2 1/2″ barrel/shroud configuration available as a separate option from the factory. It can be purchased with several different barrel/shroud combinations including one with a solid rib, one with a ventilated rib, and one with no barrel at all.
The Model 44 could also be obtained with a “power control” barrel compensator. It was a stainless steel barrel drilled radially at the muzzle end with a series of small ports. These vents on the top of the barrel shroud vented excess gas and reduced apparent recoil of the gun, although this feature eliminated the option of using cast lead bullets because lead and carbon accumulation.
At the time, the model was the lightest recoiling.44 magnum ever produced. Light recoil was a side benefit of IHMSA silhouette competitions.
The Model 44’s high level of intrinsic accuracy, combined with an excellent trigger, and fast lock time, caused a surge in popularity of the Model 44 in heavy caliber revolver competition, though the gun was also popular with handgun hunters and sportsmen who desired a gun for personal protection against bears or other large predators.
After the Power Control’s development and testing was completed, it was decided to add a compensator to the power control. When the compensator was dropped, Dan Wesson then released their Large Frame revolver in other calibers, including.41 Magnum
