    For those who know, this wheel gun needs no introduction:

    -Diamondback Serial Numbers: 1976 — N01001-N01800
    -Unfired with only the faintest turn line on the cylinder.
    -No wear on the deep blue anywhere. Perfect bluing. Stocks in original condition.

    $1200 OBO

    Check out the photo album:

    For those who don't I'll let Chuck Hawks give you the info:

    Colt introduced the Diamondback double action revolver in 1966. It was intended to be a deluxe model and included special features such as a target hammer, ventilated rib, fully adjustable target quality sights, and full length barrel underlug. Like its Colt half-brothers the Detective Special and Police Positive, also built on the Colt "D" frame, it was a 6-shot revolver with a swing out cylinder and a Positive Lock action.


    .38 Special +P loads are safe for use in all Diamondback .38 Special revolvers.

    The top of the barrel wears a ventilated rib, and there is a full length lug beneath, as per the Colt Python. The Diamondback is, visually, a miniature Python.

    The top strap of the Diamondback's frame is a flat top target type. The hammer has a wide, serrated, spur and the trigger is a grooved target type. Diamondbacks came with a fully adjustable rear sight, usually mated with a ramp front sight. The grips provided on guns with 4 and 6 inch barrels are checkered walnut target type. Its internal lockwork is of the same basic design as the Python and uses the traditional Colt "V" shaped mainspring.

    I can't believe you still have it either. If I hadn't just spent a boatload of money on a kitchen remodel I would snap this up.

    BTT...You all are making it to easy to keep this beauty. I also have an S&W .44mag, Colt Series 70 .45 (blue), and a Colt series 80 .45 (Stainless) that I'd be willing to part with for the right price.
