Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Diamond Back DB-9 range report.

My son bought this from an employee of his, a jammo-matic, by the third or fourth round it would fail to feed so I went online and the company had a new mag and barrel for a reasonable price, and I changed them. It's a copy of the mini Glock. Finally had some free time today and took it to the range, fired 50 rnds of Fiocchi 114gr no problems, the pins stayed tight, accurate as hell at 25 ft, no failure to feed no ejection problems but trigger slap is a bitch. It makes a real nice pocket gun.

Also took my PPKs which I haven't tried in years since it had an ejection problem, which I presumably corrected and found out that yes, I had fixed it a while back, another 50 rnds no problems on it.

I'm relaxed.

It's not a range gun, people want to take it and shoot a thousand rounds, it's not intended for that. They had problems with the mag springs and the feeding ramp, I replaced both. It's a pocket emergency gun that shoots 9mm and it does it very well when it's fine tuned and using the right ammo, but don't go shoot it every day, also uses ammo 120 gr or less, use anything larger and you become a test pilot.

Yes Sir. I was looking at older blown up models with +P rounds fired through them. They were on sale at a shooting range near me a few months ago. I was looking for a replacement for my lost KelTec P11.

Like the Keltecs, sounds like they need a little fluff-n-buff to get them to run 100%.

No experience with the Diamondback, but it sounds similar.

For a quality reasonably priced pistol go here: https://www.classicfirearms.com/star...nal-box-manual

The Star BM is a steal at $200.

Star, while not my favorite brand is still a better quality tool that this piece of crap DB. The only reason I have it is one of my son's employees needed money and let it go for $100. He said it was a jammomatic, but the mag spring was soft and when I went to their website they had a new mag and barrel for about $60, everything else looked good, no cracks, no lose pins, no wear in the trigger mechanism so I ran 50 rnds and it was all good. $160 for a 9 mm that you can put in your pocket ain't bad. 6 in the mag one in the pipe, double action striker fired system. Very accurate too.
