2\" diamondback with white ramp front sight

Did the Diamondback ever come with a white ramp front sight?
Found one that has it, pachmayr grips, decent condition $399.
The white insert has scribed lines across it like a normal blue steel front sight.

I never saw a factory white insert. Usually just red.

I suspect an after-market job.

Did the Diamondback ever come with a front sight insert? I don't remember ever seeing one.

Yep. Late model 6" barrel guns.

Whoops, I just took a closer look at the original post, and just noticed the reference in the header to a "2 inch" Diamondback.

As far as I know, other than custom or limited production specials, the production 2 1/2" Diamondback never had a sight insert.

The 2 1/2" and 4" Diamondback front sights were machined in one piece with the barrel forging.

Only the 6" Diamondback has a pinned-in front sight, and the later versions came with a red ramp insert.
