22lr for me.
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.
22lr for me.
I’d rather be in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.
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.

I've traveled a long way in my lifetime, and some of the roads weren't paved.
They are nice. Like Python's little brother....
That is a nice one on the RugerForum! But it looks like it’s gone.
