Looking for a Sidekick?

Florida-based Diamondback Firearms this week announced they have a new handgun inbound, a 9-shot, single and double action rimfire revolver with a swing-out, interchangeable cylinder.

Dubbed the Sidekick, in no doubt because, while it has “cowboy gun” aesthetics, the revolver uses a swing-out cylinder, comes chambered in .22 rimfire, and includes both .22LR and .22WMR cylinders. The Sidekick will initially be offered with a 4.5-inch barrel having 1:19RH twist, 6 groove rifling. The Cerakoted alloy-framed revolver weighs in 32.5-ounces and has an overall length of 9.875-inches.

Did I mention it’s a 9-shot DA/SA that will probably run about $299 at your local gunshop?
