Help With My .22 Colt Diamondback
Yea it's a Colt but I gotta start somewhere . I lost the female threaded brass bushing out of the right hand side wood grip . The screw will still tighten up the grips but the empty hole looks ugly . Anybody have one or know where I can get one ? I bought this gun new back in the early 80's and it's just a great shooting pistol .
Thanks in advance,
I'm surprised it tightens down and didnít know they made any out of brass. The only ones Iíve seen are blued steel. Are you sure the threaded escutcheon isn't just sunk into the grip panel and covered with gunk?
FYI, they used several size screw/escutcheons. At least on the ones I've owned, the larger target type stocks use a smaller screw than the service stocks on the 2-1/2" guns.
Try these folks: Jack First Gunshop - First in Gun Parts - Rapid City, South Dakota They probably have it, but if they don't, they note your request on a post card and when they get the part, they send the post card out. We have gotten several hard-to-find parts from them.
I feel your pain--my first revolver was a .22 Diamondback, at the ripe old age of 17! I plunked down $197 of my own money and it will be the last to go (apologies to the S&W Forum!) Good luck!
Call Colt, they still support the Diamondback in house. They might send you the part, but will probably ask you to send the grips in for them to install, if they have the part. Certainly worth a try.
Thanks guys .
In the future, be more gentle with the screwdriver! ;)
You do realize that this is a Smith forum... And with the damage on those stocks... I feel that it is only fair, as a punitive measure... You sell me one of those. Simply stunning!
