I bought my 6" Colt Diamondback around 1984, used for $235. I had saved for 2 years and had mowed a lot of yards. Dad of course bought it because I was too young, but I still have it. I had a gunsmith put a 4" barrel on it and can swap when I feel the need. I had it hard chromed with Metalife around 2008. I also had traded into a S&W model 18 about 10-12 years ago. I didn't like the shells sticking in the chambers so I sold it and made a profit. I wish I still had it. I had two, used High Standard Sentinel 9 shot revolvers. I gave one to a dear friend for his birthday. I sold the other but it was a fun plinker. Trigger wasn't great and the gun was okay, but my Colt was my go-to .22lr. I bought a new Charter Arms Pathfinder Target 8 shot .22lr earlier this year from the factory (Law Enforcement). I had high hopes that it would be a decent plinker to let my wife and daughter shoot. I sent it to the factory twice due to misfires and a .020" barrel/cylinder gap. I shot it after it returned the 2nd time and caught some spitting while shooting it so I decided to part ways with it. I guess my old Colt just has me spoiled and there is no need for me to look for anything else...but a model 17 or 617 will probably eventually find its way into my safe.
