    Mine was an utter POS. There's a pic below of the type of jamming issues I was having. Went back to DB once for that, then the trigger broke on me in around 100 rounds. Sent it back again, and then sold it to someone on the boards with full disclosure. Hope it's working for him. No way I'd trust one.

    Such a familiar story for DB products. People love the ergonomics, but the guns just.don't.work.

    Hopefully they fixed the DB9 frame rails cracking,trigger falling apart and not resetting issues. I'd put a few more hundred rounds through it before carrying it.

    Well, I have one, and it works great. I requires a VERY firm grip. Not forgiving of any slack in the grip. Hold it tight, and it runs great. Get the least bit lose, and you do clearing drills. My friend can't get through a mag, but he also limps his block. Runs like a champ for me.

    The DB9 is crap. Diamondbacks .380's and entry level AR's are ok but that DB9 is horrible. I owned one, and I hate to even talk about it. M&P Shield, XDs, Sig P938, Walther PPS, the list of small carry guns goes on and on and on, why chose the only turd laying in a pile of diamonds?

    It's not in the same league as my Kahr, Beretas or Glocks, but it does run and run well. It's a very compact 9mm, and if you've got the grip, it may work for you.
