I read on another post that the 6 inch Diamondback was first sold in 1978 and prior to that they were all four inch. I just want to confirm this and the manufacture date of the six inch serial number R465xx.

I am thinking of bidding on an auction for this.

Thanks.

I, too, confirm your SN as being from 1978. I don't know the exact time frame of the 6" barrel introduction, but can state that the '76 catalog showed only the 4" and 2.5" options.
