    Welcome to TFF Blaine Man,

    It would appear that you have a revolver and a semi-auto, not two semi's.

    Wesson Firearms Co., founded in 1968 by Daniel B Wesson the great-grandson of the co-founder of Smith & Wesson, was best know for well manufactured revolvers with interchangeable barrels. The company was purchased by New York International Corp in 1996, and revolvers manufactured after that are laser marked "NYI" inside of a circle. The name was changed to Dan Wesson Firearms and manufacturing took place in Norwich, NY. In 2005 Dan Wesson Firearms was purchased by CZ-USA.

    The companies manufactured many different models of revolvers and prices vary widely. I suggest you remove the grips and look for a model number.

    The semi-auto, model Pointman Major, has a value of $600-700 in excellent condition. Jarvis indicates that it is equipped with a match barrel.
