Recommended Posts

Up for sale is a 1978 Colt Diamondback 38 spl. Gun is mechanically perfect and locks up tight. Has period correct Pachmayr grips. Finish is good with some muzzle wear as seen in pics. No box or papers. If its good enough for John Wayne, Its good enough for us mortals.

$1200 $1100 and Bill of Sale w TN ID

Will consider other Colt snub nose revolvers or Sabre Defence Rifles. 

Springfield, Cross Plains, White House areas.

"Funny thing about pic, the Duke was right handed, but he is shooting that one left handed."



I believe photo is reversed.  Cylinder release aoppears to be on wrong side, also check placement of buttons on Duke's sport coat.

This is correct. A still of that shot shows him with it in his right hand and the release in the correct spot. The one is the ad is a mirror image which is also in the stills archive for that film

The picture is reversed.  I can't find a picture of him (without a hat, which is a challenge) where he didn't part his hair on the LEFT side.



John Wayne wore hair pieces. It could have been a part on either side. 
You are right. That picture is reversed.
