Dan Wesson Sideplate
Anyone know where I can get a sideplate to fit a Dan Wesson model 14? This is the early model with the "L" shaped barrel shroud, and the parts books show it as being the same as the model 12. Numrich lists them for $26.50 but never seems to have any in stock. CZ says they have them and they list for about $59, but they won't sell it unless I ship the gun to them and they install it for $92 total plus shipping. Seems ridiculous to me since BATF says it's not considered the action on a revolver and can be sold to anyone. Maybe they just don't want to sell parts for these older guns, or maybe they're just trying to protect their interest and make sure it's done right. Who knows? All I know is I need one and am quite capable of replacing it myself. Any info would be appreciated.
