The 715 is as it was before — designed and built to be the most
accurate, rugged and versatile revolver on the market. Famous
for its swappable barrels, 2016 sees the revival of the Pistol
Pack. Shipped with 4”, 6” and 8” barrel/shroud assemblies
in the modern heavy vent shroud profile, the weight of which
tames the recoil of the .357 Magnum very well.
The double-action trigger is short and relatively light, while the
single action is light and crisp. The target-like SA trigger pull
made the Dan Wesson revolver a favorite among competitors
and hunters, and the tradition continues in the 715.
Like it’s famous predecessors, barrel assemblies and grips are
easily swapped by the shooter, and the 715 accepts grips and
barrel/shroud assemblies from 15-2 model and newer revolvers.
The original Dan Wesson revolver improved on the accuracy and
service life of the traditional double-action revolver design in a
few ways. The tensioned barrel of the DW interchangeable barrel
system enhances accuracy, pulling the barrel tight like a guitar
string, enabling it to vibrate at the same frequency every time.
The forward crane latch, located in front of the cylinder and
paired with a rear ball detent, helps to ensure proper cylinder/
barrel alignment during firing. Superior to the rear locking
designs of other revolvers, it adds to the accuracy of the 715.
While the tensioned barrel definitely improves accuracy over
other revolvers, it’s the consistent cylinder/barrel alignment that
contributes most to the accuracy of the design.
Additionally, the clockwise-rotating cylinder reduces stress on
the crane, since it turns in the same direction the crane locks,
prolonging service life and keeping everything tight. The 715's
frame is robust, built to handle the heaviest of factory loads.
Each Pistol Pack is shipped in a custom Dan Wesson hardcase
with compartments for the additional barrel assemblies and a
factory-supplied barrel wrench kit.
