    Without box and all, I would put it at about $800. They are not real scarce.

    You're probably looking at about $1000 or a bit more. Highest prices seem to be gotten on GunBroker online auciton. You might want to check closed auctions.

    One additional point: Excellent or good can mean a lot of different things. If there is no wear on the bluing (including the cylinder), than it would be considered a 100% gun. If there is a line on the cylinder, it's a 98% gun. Additional wear reduces the percentage and the value. The original box is important too.

    I should take it in to get a professional to look at the wearing, but I got to say it looks like it has never been fired or hardly at all. The person I got it from did not ever shoot as far as I know. thanks for the wearing info.

    Re: Colt Diamondback 22 - value

    You don't need a professional unless it is something really special. It is not that tough. I have bought NIB guns retail with the line on the cylinder to shoot. The 4" Blue 22 Diamondback is the most common of the configurations for DB 22's. They are still my favorite barrel length though. If you decide to buy it, I hope you enjoy it. I certainly get pleasure just looking at them.

    A further note on condition: If you can barely see a tracing on the cylinder, then I usually lean toward 99% and more than likely the gun has been shot very little to none. There are many collectors here that would rate it 99% with any cylinder line unless it was really harsh. The usual locations for wear are the end of the barrel from carrying in a holster, the front edges of the cylinder (bullet exit end), and obviously the cylinder. Rust is the killer. Sounds like you are looking at a great gun.
