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.

      This is a new in box never fired S.A. XDS-9mm that I bought new and just never fired it. It has the factory gray colored frame . It comes with all the factory items it has along with 2 extra magazines I bought for it for a total of 4 magazines. One magazine is the flush fitting 7rd , 2 are 8 rd mags,  one has the gray floor plate  and the other is black, and the other mag is a 9rd mag. The pistol has a small and large grip insert , factory red fiber optic front sight and the nylon carrying case.  I am asking $430 for this all. It is a truly thin 9mm pistol that can easily be carried in the pocket or a holster.  I am in the Clarksville area but will drive up to 50 miles any direction to meet a member here to buy it. Thanks for looking.

      Up for sale here is a couple of Vortex scopes that are excess for me
      ***SOLD*** 1. Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x Gen 2 in great like new condition with cantilever mount. No box or paperwork, I lost it in a recent move. Flip up scope covers are included. Priced at $300 (plus shipping/insurance if you need me to ship)
      2. Vortex Spitfire 3x Prism. Brand new in box with standard AR mount and the low mount also. Flip up scope covers are included also. Priced at $300 (plus shipping/insurance if you need me to ship)
      I'm not really looking for trades at the moment unless you have a Vortex Strike Eagle or PST 5-25x as that's what I'm really needing for a target rifle. I may consider a Vortex Viper HST 6-24X, otherwise just looking for cash.
