Diamondback, a company known for their small .380 pistol has released a full sized double stacked 9mm pistol. Looking loosely like a blend of the XD series pistols and Glock, the pistol striker is exposed when cocked for a tactile indicator as well as a Glock style slide release.
With an MSRP of $483, these are sure to make a splash. Look forward to finding one in the wild for testing in the future.
Miami, Florida – Diamondback FirearmsTM, a Florida based firearms manufacturer of quality pistols and rifles, introduces their new full-size, polymer DB FS Nine handgun.
This new 9mm pistol is a double-action, striker-fire designed platform that incorporates an ergonomically driven polymer double stack frame with a stainless steel slide. With extensive research on the form and function of the tactile-enhanced grip, the operator will find the design enhances control, while providing consistent hand placement. The flared magwell aids in fast and reliable reloads while the extended magazine base pad provides a secure grip during loading, handling and shooting the DB FS Nine.
Diamondback has incorporated a trigger safety and firing pin block safety with a short, positive reset, minimizing trigger travel for faster cycle times. A cocking indicator is located at the rear of the slide, providing visual and tactical recognition. For quick target acquisition, fixed, three-dot sights are mounted onto the stainless slide. Both front and rear tactical serrations provide firm engagement between the user’s hand and the DB FS Nine’s slide, allowing for a better grip during manipulation. The dust cover has an integrated MIL-STD1913 Picatinny rail for tactical lights, lasers and other accessories, extending its versatility for everyday carry, home defense, training or use on the range. The 4.75″ Chromemoly barrel on the DB FS Nine provides a long, 6.25″ sight radius, aiding the overall accuracy of the pistol during practice and competition.
