    Well I treated myself to a new EDC, a non mint but very fine example of Colt workmanship a sweet 2.5" Diamondback. It came with Goodyears which I despise so I added these nice Badgers I had. I only like wood and steel on my revolvers guess I am old school but it is the way I like em. It has a very smooth action and crisp trigger so a good way to start off the new year and decade.

    Anything is better than Goodyear’s. Pretty gun. What wood is that?

    Thanks, personal preference for everyone, still works for me. Maybe I will get a nice set of factory grips if I can find a good deal. Right now it's not a priority.

    Man, I gotta come visit some of you guys (or spend more time looking for guns on the internet) … I can't ever find beauties like that in my area.
    Just SWEET.

    Great find! Always did like the Diamondback especially in .22LR and with a 4" barrel.

    Like the repo grips better than the Badgers.

    To be honest the Badgers are very comfortable and are very nice and have great looking wood but have kind of an odd look about them.The repo's have a more classic look so I will probably keep them on.

    It's not too bad for a 1967 vintage

    First revolver I remember shooting was my uncle's diamondback. Was too young to even appreciate it, but I remember it being fun and easy to shoot for a 7yr old me...

    Did they ever make a .22 snubby Diamondback?

    In any event, I see some .38 case rims in that first picture.:)
