Dan Wesson's 715 was designed and built to be the most accurate, rugged and versatile revolver on the market. Shipped with a 6" barrel, the redesigned shroud is designated the HV6, a heavy vent shroud profile that tames the .357s recoil very well. The double action trigger is short and relatively light, while the single action is light and crisp. The 715 accepts grips and barrel/shroud assemblies from 15-2 model and newer revolvers. The tensioned barrel of the DW interchangeable barrel system enhances accuracy, and the forward crane latch paired with a rear ball detent helps to ensure proper cylinder/barrel alignment. Superior to the rear locking designs of other revolvers, it adds to the accuracy of the 715. While the tensioned barrel definitely improves accuracy above other revolvers, it is 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 715s frame is robust, built to handle the heaviest of factory loads.
Each revolver is shipped in a custom Dan Wesson hard case. Patterned after the ever-popular Pistol Pack, the case has compartments for three additional barrel assemblies and factory-supplied barrel wrench kit.
This model has a cast stainless steel frame with a brushed finish and a black rubber grip.
