Yeah hard to tell without having hands on the Dan Wesson but looking at pictures the trigger guard is a bit different and it looks like where it comes off the frame is a bit different and the sweep of the front of the frame up to the barrel is more pronounced on the S&W guns which might be what's causing the issue here depending on how they made that welt shape. I'd actually guess that's the issue if they form fit that welt in towards the frame inside the rig.

If it's something your interested in I'm sure I can get my hands on that Dan Wesson and get a copy of it modeled up and made. It's not something I get allot of call for recently but I don't mind building for it.

    I think you might be right.  If you compare this picture of a S&W 686, the trigger guard seems to slope "up" just a bit.  It's more horizontal on my gun.   I bet that is just enough to let the S&W slide down into the holster just a little deeper.  Ditto on the Ruger GP100.  I'll let you know if I need one made. Might be a couple months though.

    Sure not a problem at all it may be something I'll take on just to add to the list but we'll see ;)

    Take care

    The barrel lug being squared off is probably playing with it, too...

    Yup.  My thought too.  The differences are fairly small but also significant when talking about holster fit.

    Resurrecting this zombie thread. Looks like the issue with the holster wasn't just the Dan Wesson.   I picked up used GP100 a couple weeks ago and it doesn't fit either.     So I guess Bianchi lied about the compatibility or this particular example is just defective.

    That one could go either way.  The old Bianchi company was top notch back when John Bianchi ran it.  I still have a couple of their holsters that are still working well.

    Since Safariland acquired them - not so much.

    I thought about just getting a strip of leather and putting a snap on each end to bridge the gap.  That would probably be a cheap fix.   The gun stays in there pretty good just from friction alone, so the snap isn't strictly necessary.

    You might be able to stretch the strap or the holster but it depends on how short it is, you can do an extender, but that's something I normally wouldn't do for a break it's adding more stuff to fiddle with.

    I think it's more than stretching would go me.  However, I could put a second snap on the holster about half an inch above where the current one is.  I think that would do it.
