    I Want a Diamondback!

    I’m glad that Colt has brought the Python back, but I really want the Diamondback. They already have the small frame. It would probably be in .357, but I would just as soon have it in .38. Just thinking.

    Colt already makes what is essentially a .357 Diamondback in the new King Cobra Target.
    That's a small frame 4 inch barrel model with adjustable sights, other then the caliber..... basically a Diamondback.

    Put the Python barrel on the King Cobra Target frame with a wider hammer and chamber it in .38.......BOOM..Diamondback!

    Exactly! It seems to me like the Diamondback would have been the logical follow-on to the Cobra.

    I suspect that Colt will offer the new King Cobra design in .22LR and possibly call it a Diamondback.

    There's not much market for a .38 Special Diamondback type model, but a .22LR just might be a good seller.

    Colt could make a Diamondback .22 as their deluxe rimfire revolver on the Cobra frame...and make a fixed sight .22 Cobra with a 3" barrel like they used to as a fine backpacker's piece.

    But Colt hasn't asked me for my opinions or ideas.

    There is what appears to be a very nice Colt Diamondback for sale on the Ruger forum. No box or papers.

    That is a nice one on the RugerForum! But it looks like it’s gone.
