Man, I like the Diamondbacks! Like miniature Colt Pythons. They fit my small hands rather well. I only have the .38 versions, though. But one of these days I am sure I'll pick up a .22 or three when I run into them.
I was looking at a really nice nickle model at one of the Tallahassee shows not too long ago. Looked beautiful. But when I asked the guy to let me take a closer look at it, I noticed a ding right on the crown of the barrel. The guy was saying "it will come right out very easily". In a nickle gun? I don't think so. So unfortunately I had to walk away from that one.
I only have blued Diamondbacks, as just about all the nickle models I have looked at looked like they were not treated right in life.
