The Dan Wesson revolver chambered for the 357 Magnum can have barrel lengths of 2.5", 4", 6", 8", or 10". It is a stainless steel 6 shot with a full length ejector shroud. The Blue Book values are:
Add $50 for 4 in., $90 for 6 in., $150 for 8 in., or $190 for 10 in. barrel.
Add 20% to 30% to the Blue Book values for retail prices.
I hope this helps you,
There are 2 different companies, Is it a Wesson Firearms Co. or a Dan Wesson firearms?
Does it have an exposed or recessed barrel nut, fixed or adjustable sights and what would make it easier, is there a model number on it?
There are a couple of possibilities for your gun. 1 with fixed sights and a fixed barrel with a satin blue finish and the other has a high polished bright blue.
The satin finished gun has a 2.5" or 4" barrel and the following Blue Book values:
The high polished blue can have a 3, 4, 5, or 6" barrel. Blue Book values are:
The barrel is measured through the receiver to the cylinder. That should make it about 2.5".
I would hold out for $200, maybe a little more. You would do much better listing it on auction arms or gunbroker. Auction prices on revolvers seem to go about 50% more than a trade in.
Thank you very much for that answer that is very helpful .Tom I also have a .22 caliber H&R nine shot revolver that is some years old do you think it is worth much
An H&R revolver like the Model 949 Double Action 9 shot 22 has the following Blue Book values:
On a trade in, don't expect more than $75 to $100.
You're welcome and thank you,
Good luck with them,
