Hello everyone! I thought I'd start with a pic of my favorite revolver.
Colt Diamondback .22
Many years ago I tried to interest Colt in reviving the New Service and giving it the Python treatment, and thus have three matched guns on differing frames, but to no avail.
I've owned all three guns, Pythons, Diamondbacks and New Services. And, dang it!, I don't have a one now.
P.S. Friend of mine had a 2 1/2" Diamnondback, and that is what I really wanted for carrying. Couldn't talk him out of his, and couldn't come up with one at a reasonable price. Settled for a Smith Model 19 and never looked back.

Congrats mr. Brown-----you got a keeper for sure !!!!! I bought a 6" diamondback in the early 1970's. It is chambered for .22 long rifle. Awesome pistol for small game hunting. I refer to it as my "baby python"
my wife used it to win a first place trophy in an nra hunters pistol match in the early 1980's, while we were living in el centro, ca.
Take good care of it & enjoy for your lifetime !!!!!!!!!!
Outstanding!! You don't see many .22 Diamondbacks in that good of shape anymore. Nice
One ? for u -- is the trigger pull on the diamondback as nice as on the other Colt Snake guns ?
VERY NICE HANDGUN THAT!
Very nice, you don't see too many .22 versions. I'd love one to go with my .38 Special Diamondback.
I have a blue python but a want a matching Diamondback in 22. Very nice gun, does it shoot as nice as a python?
