Went to the Diamondback Firearms Website today to see what’s new and wow, what a pleasant surprise! As many were hoping for, they have just released a 9mm version of their popular DB380 pistol. As a new company when it comes to firearms, this is their second pistol released to date.
A few very important things to note here. The DB9 looks quite small. In fact, even when compared to the excellent Kel-Tec PF-9, it has an edge in terms of width and overall weight. Its width is only .8″ vs .88″ and appears to now take the top spot as the slimmest 9mm on the market. It also weighs in at only 11 ounces. That’s remarkably less than the super light PF-9. As a DB380 owner, what do I consider the best feature of all? It appears to have the same super smooth 5lb DAO trigger that the DB380 is known for. With that said, this pistol should be as highly accurate and a pleasure to shoot, regardless of your skill level.
While I love their DB380 pistol reviewed here, many don’t seem to be impressed with it and in fact, many have quite a hatred towards the company as a result. While mine does not have any issues, many owners have reported a large number of issues with it and don’t consider it a reliable gun at all. Perhaps their new DB9 will win many over. It appears to be an excellent concealed carry weapon. I will try and get a hold of one for review here.
