Even if you can find a used bolt, don't buy it, it's likely it won't work because it was already fitted to a different gun.

Fortunately, Jack First Gun Parts is manufacturing replica Colt parts.
For a Diamondback you DON'T want the old style bolt.


In NO WAY are Colt bolts anything like drop in parts.
They require careful fitting and even bending to install and adjust for proper timing.
Unless you're trained on the Colt action I highly recommend buying the Jerry Kuhnhausen Shop Manual Volume One.
This was written as a training aid for pistolsmith students and shows everything about the older Colt action models.
It shows installation and adjustment of the bolt in deep detail. This is a far more complex a job then you might think and timing of the bolt is absolutely critical to proper operation.
This is money well spent and will save you money and time.

Thanks for the lead, and you are correct on both points. Ive been a smith for over 40 + years i probably should have mentioned that. But its good you pointed that out as others may not know!!!!
