Howdy. Can anyone give a DOB for a Diamondback .22 S/N R09XXX? Also I have been having Winchester Bulk 22's that don't fire on first strike. Approx 5 in the last 100 rounds. Is this the ammo???? Thanks in advance.

R09XXX was made in 1977.
The year and the "R" series started with R01001, and ran to R13900 by the end of the year.

For your occasional misfire problems, first change the brand/type of ammo.

Next, give the cylinder and ejector a GOOD cleaning.

If the problem persists, you may need a new mainspring.

Thanks dfariswheel,
Had bought the gun as unfired about five years ago. Have not fired it much. Was the 1977 year a good vintage in reference to Colt's quality? TIA
