Does anyone know when the grips on Diamondbacks changed from the half moon design to the straight cut? I was thinking it was a little later than the ones on the Pythons did but I am not certain. Thanks GUYS!

I have a 6 inch .22 Diamondback with the straight cut grip, and a 4 inch .38 Diamondback with the half moon cut. Both were made in 1978, and I believe both have original grips. So maybe the change was 1978? I am not sure there is a definitive answer. Surely forum members will likely have an answer.

Thanks Folly I figured it was a couple years after the Python. I know the Pythons changed about 1975. I'm looking for a 22 DB, and trying to gather up a little more info on them to tell if ones I may look at have the period grips or not.
