    1968 Diamondback .38 Special, 2 1/2 bbl...Original owner....How did I do?

    I just picked this up from the original owner who bought it new in 1968. Less than 50 rounds fired and it extremely good condition: no turn line, 100% bluing, no scuffs, etc. No box or paperwork, however. $1200 seemed like a reasonably price so I jumped on it. I don't know too much about DBs but this one seemed unique enough to buy.

    Sorry but I couldn't get my email pics to download into this post.....
    Any help would be appreciated....thx in advance.

    Papa

    Files are probably too large. You will need to resize them to make smaller. If you would like you can email them to me ( sacredhills@hotmail.com ) and I will be happy to post them for you.

    Would like to see the pics!

    Papa,the snub Diamondback is a great looking Colt. I have come close to buying one a time or two. They also came in .22 lr, but very rare to see one.
    At $1200.00, in the condition you describe, I believe you paid under the market by a few hundred bucks. The last I saw, not in your condition, was an ask price of $1700.00.

    Less than half price. You wear a mask when you stole it?

    Lumberjack: Funny comment and I never thought about wearing a mask. The seller is a Ph.D....not sure what his field is but we were both happy with the deal.
