I bought a Colt Diamondback .22 6" newffor about $200. When I see them now at shows they are usually asking around $2,000. Bought an SKB 200E for $600 at an auction, last one I saw was $1,200. Several others have increased in value, but these are the best examples I have. Of course, to get the money I'd have to sell, and I don't want to.
