You know, Colt quit making revolvers, and that old thing will be broken with no parts to repair it before you know it. If you like, you can ship it to me for proper disposal.





:D

Xavier's right, they don't make parts for those old things. But I don't think you should send it to him for proper disposal. He's got so much iron buried around his place he's a hazard to compass navigation.

Better send it to me instead. I have a "compass deflection proof" burial site out back.;)

Thanks for your offers, fellas! However, I was just gonna ask you guys if you might want to send me some of your fine iron, instead(Since I'm short on Colt iron, in my stock pile!)?:evil:

It's a beauty. Have to wonder, though, why every Diamondback I see is in mint or near mint condition. I don't think I've ever seen one, in fact, with the least bit of wear on it. I guess they're too pretty to use as real tools. Congratulations.

PS, back in the 1980s I met a guy with two Diomondback. One was in .22 and the other was in .38. He got them from his bank just for opening up an account there. I think that had happened, though, quite a few years before I met him. Can you imagine banks doing that today?
