    Friend has a Dan Wesson 15 2v with interchangeable barrels. Has 4in and 8in barrel. Missing 2 and 6 inch barrels. No box. Has wood and and rubber grips. He wants to sell and dont know value and doesnt want to get ripped off.

    These are really undervalued IMO I expect that to move in the $500 range. But verify that with more opinions. Does he have the barrel tool that came with it, and is it a Monson gun?

    If your friend is in the Charlotte area I'd like to have a look.

    Gun with one barrel and rubber grips will sell in the $500s. Extra barrel will bring $200-250 by itself online. Wood grips will bring $50 or more by themselves - a lot more if they are zebra wood.

    With that said, if he sells them together he will likely get less than if he sells them separately. Depends on how much work he is willing to do.

    All assuming everything is in excellent condition.

    Pretty sure he does have the barrel tool. What's a Monson gun? He is in Gastonia area.

    A Monson gun was made at their original facility in Monson, MA. It'll be stamped on the frame.

    So no official "blue book" speculation?
