1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Looking for a nice Colt Diamondback in .22. Prefer 4 inch barrel. Looked on gunbroker, etc. Not really wanting to paying $1500+.
    Thanks

    Yeah, those are super nice revolvers, but many sellers have lost their marbles lately with preposterous asking prices. Reminds me of the Model 42s a few years ago. Idiots don't realize that there's about a 40% deduct for a nice 90% condition shooter compared to a 100% collector gun. My suggestion would be to be patient and hit the local gun shows with cash-in-hand. I've seen two very nice ones in the last few months for under $1100 (one 4" and one 6").

    Good luck.

    Not exactly what you are looking for, and yes I know the differences, but I have a used Dan Wesson .22 with 6 inch and 2 inch barrels plus tool. Would consider way less than the $1500, way less. Fun gun to shoot, bought it to teach my daughters some handgun basics without scaring them off.

    That'll be 10 days in jail for letting that nice Diamondback rust. Bailiff, take him away.

    Thanks for all of the emails and pm's. Finally found what I was looking for from a gentleman in Alabama. He had one that has been a safe queen for over 30 years and wanted less than a $1000 for it. Deal has been done and the search is finally over.
    Thanks again to everyone for their help!!

    Tom: Whiz, or neglect, the punishment must fit the crime -- 10 days in County Lock-Up.

    Bailiff...

    PS: John: It sounds like you're happy with the deal, so good for you. A little patience goes a long way when you don't want to pay the sucker prices.

    Howdy all, Like I said I am the first and third owner of this Diamondback. when I sold it in the early 80's i asked to have the option to buy it back when it came up for sale. This was the condition it came back in. I also had a huge reduction in the amount I had to pay for it . It still shoot's great. Just the overall appearance of it shows a lot of wear.
    As of last night it is going to a new home. My Daughter in law.
    Thanks All
    Tom
