This is a pre owned Colt Diamondback .38 in EXCELLENT condition. I can't tell if this pistol has ever been fired, there are no visible signs of use. I would say the bluing is at 98.5 to 100 %. The grips' finish shows some wear, but the grips themselves are unbroken and retain their original checkering. This is a 4" .38 special model and the serial # puts the build date at 1968.
