The Colt Diamondback is commonly referred to as the Colt Pythons little brother. Built by the same artisans and on a slightly smaller frame, the Diamondback still packed one hell of a bite.
1) Chambered in both .38special or 22LongRifle, these revolvers were unbelievably accurate. Low recoil and locking cylinders meant this model could really be a precision shooter.
2) The Diamondback came both blued and nickel. The revolver is a great show piece and naturally looked great without all the extra weight of a python.
3) Priced around $1500 with everything included, a Diamondback will get you a very sought after Colt snake gun without paying several thousand for a revolver.
