I usually post on the Caliber Corner but thought I'd throw this out there for ya: I bought a new Diamondback yesterday. It has the nickel plated slide. $400 plus tax and background check. Took it home and began to dig through my stash for some .380 I knew I had but wasn't sure exactly where or what type. Found about 40rds of *old* Cor Bon 90gr +P loads (maybe late 90's?). I also had a box of 102gr Golden Sabers that I had set aside for carry ammo should I buy another .380. Racking the slide you could tell the spring was stiff. New gun, manual says it needs a break-in period, no biggie. Now, my wife is training for a marathon and has been doing some running in the middle of nowhere so she asked if I still had "One of those small guns you used to?" Nope, sold my Ruger LCP and NAA Mini-revolver. I told her to just carry her Kahr PM9 but she balked---"Too heavy, it'll just bang against me". I was like WTF woman? Okay, excuse to buy a new gun! I loaded 5 rounds of the GS as this was going to be the carry ammo and handed it to the ol' lady. First round fired then failure to feed (FTF from here on out). Okay, maybe she's limpwristing it. I take it off her and rapid fire the next 4 no problemo. Yep, that's what she's doing. Switch to the Cor Bon. Same thing. She couldn't get through a mag without doing it repeatedly. It was driving me nuts, so I'd load a mag and pop it off without issue. Then she got a failure of the trigger to reset (!). Pulled back a little on the slide and it apparently caught on the striker so we were good to go. I tried a little weak hand shooting and had a FTF myself. Now, this could be due the grip weak side being, well, weak. Finally got her to get through a mag by gripping it uber-tight, but only once! Also had two more failures to reset of the trigger after chambering the first round in a mag. In a nutshell, numerous FTF's and three failures to reset out of eight mags total. I can almost write off the FTF to the break-in period and lame grip, but it was excessive. The failures to reset, however, was unacceptable. Called Diamondback today and was *supposed* to get an emailed UPS call tag by 4PM to ship it back. Didn't get it. Called again and they said "Sometimes they go out late". Mmmkay, whatever. Not thrilled about that either. I like the gun and want it to work but right now I'm not impressed.
