Dan Wesson is a company founded by Daniel Wesson II. He initially worked for Smith & Wesson (1938-1963) and strictly controlled the quality of production. After the company was purchased by Bangor-Punta, Wesson decided to focus on his own business. The company is based in Kansas City, Kansas, with the customer service based in Norwich, New York. The owner has a wealth of knowledge about revolvers, but also about certain types of ammunition that he has introduced over the years.
Unfortunately, numerous successes did not help when Wesson died in 1978. The plant was created outdated and the high costs had a negative impact on the profits. In 1990 the company declared bankruptcy. It was moved to Palmer Massachusetts and was renamed to Dan Wesson Firearms. Unfortunately, a few years later, poor sales again led to another bankruptcy. It was not until Bob Serva acquired the corporation and moved it to New York that the company started to gain momentum again. The focus was put on line diversification, hence Dan Wesson 8, Dan Wesson 6 and Dan Wesson 715 became the most popular models. The manufacturer's offer also includes high quality M1911A1 type weapons. Dan Wesson revolvers have been restored to production, which thanks to the investment in new CNC equipment, instruments and accessories, once again pleased the customers.
The company faced further difficulties in 2005, when it was purchased by the American branch of the CZ Group.
Dan Wesson revolvers - solutions for everyone
The first revolvers produced were Dan Wesson W8, W9, W11 and W12. Some of them had a constant view from behind or were fully adjustable for the wind. Both the barrels and covers for these models used a large nut placed at the end of the outlet, which served as a barrel and a cover.
