    4 hours, 84 lookers and no comments?

    Isn't this the single-stack Glock y'all been praying for?

    I just hope its not a disaster like the DB380. Also, they don't pay shipping on their faulty products. I'll probably stay away for quite a long time to see how this pans out. I am glad to see everyone finally getting on the pocket 9mm ball.

    Lately there have been good reports on the DB380, seems they've taken care of those few areas of concern and are turning out a reliable firearm with that model.

    I'm already liking this single stack 9. An 11-oz 9mm sure isn't gonna have any FTE problems, that's for sure.

    I'm interested to see the reports on this one.

    It better be more reliable than that POS 380 they have.

    Yaeh! A 9mm version of a crap gun. I always prefer when a 9mm gun falls apart in my hands to when a .380acp falls apart in my hand.

    No, it's a single stack Diamondback, a manufacturer with a so far less-than-stellar reputation.

    I'll keep an eye on it, we shall see. But a single stack Glock it ain't.

    I realize function is more important than aesthetics, but Diamondbacks look like something a 3rd grader would draw.
     
  14. I met a fellow at the range with a diamondback who loved it. He didn't offer, so I didn't shoot it. So, I can't comment on that.

    But aren't the Kahr P9, P9 Covert, and PM9 pretty much single-stack Glocks? My Covert sure feels like it.

    I'm still waiting (maybe another seven to ten days) to get my first Wilhelm-designed Caracal 9mm. Not single stack, but sooooo very nice.

    Dog!! I just jumped the thread. The Diamondback is nice enough, but in the heat of the moment, I'd really like a gun that let's me know when it's empty... by locking back!

    oh God....

    No thanks x1000! The DB380 I had was enough garbage for me. I'd rather pay more for the Solo.

    No problem with my DB380 after I learned its likes and dislikes....had it 1 year and going strong with 400 plus rounds.

    I'll be a buyer for the DB9 and will add a CTC.

    Then, I'll have Stephen at http://www.rkbaholsters.com/ build me a great pocket holster for it.

    I don't know that I could trust DB. I will at least give it a long waiting period before I'd buy one.
