“Life’s Better With a Sidekick”

Diamondback firearms located in the city of Cocoa Beach in the free state of Florida has put out a pistol for first-time owners as well as us firearms enthusiasts.  It’s a 9 shot, Cowboy Style, revolver chambered in .22 LR that has a quick change, .22 Magnum cylinder!  It has the classic cowboy style, but with modern engineering and construction.  It features both single & double action.  It has checkered polymer grips, but you can get old school wood grips if you want them.  It comes with a smooth, black, Cerakote finish.

The cylinder uses an ejector rod to open and swing out the cylinder.  Then a simple push in the opposite direction causes the extraction star to expel the spent cases.  Conversion from .22 LR to .22 Magnum is quick and easy.

I really like the Sidekick!  With its swing out, quick-change cylinders, it’s great for self-defense, plinking, hunting small game, or controlling pests around the homestead.  Get over to your dealer and have a look today!

That’s all for now folks!   Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article Ideas.  And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There”
