Colt38...excellent! Glad to hear it's allowed in your state. It might be my imagination, but it seems that the .22 caliber Diamondbacks command higher prices than the .38SP from what I have seen. Diamondback68...do you think this is true, or just my impression from recent searches? I am a Python guy first, but I started looking at Diamondbacks more since seeing your post about the outrageous prices. Thanks to you, I have become more interested in adding DB's to my collection. I believe you are correct in that they will never start producing these again.
What I see is the 22LR can demand anywhere from $150-200 more (the BB says ADD 20% for 22LR) than it's 38SPL counterpart. Now this all may be geographical and you may find those prices may vary from one area of the country to another, but just look on GB or GA or AA and you will see the difference, 22LRs just command more because less were made in that caliber.
IN GOD WE TRUST,
BUT I'LL KEEP ONE .357,
JUST IN CASE!
