I just brought a Diamondback db380. It is actually the nickel slide version (I think they just started doing the nickel).

I know a lot people are looking at this gun and thought I would post an honest review of them.

I like a lot people like the way this gun feels in my hand. When I was looking at all the 380's mouseguns only 2 really stood out from the rest. The Karh p380 and of course the Diamondback. Since the Diamondback was cheaper I thought I would give it a try. I got the nickel version which is about $50 more so I paid $390 for it.

I was able to shoot it this weekend. Only got about 20 rounds thought it but it still is a good start will update this as I get more rounds though it. I did have an issue on the first round but that my fault.

The gun was flawless. I wasn't really trying to aim much but it seems to be right on target. I hit the target from 25 yards so not bad for a new gun.

The trigger is actually not bad. I wouldn't say it's great like a 1911 or even buttery smooth like a kahr. I will have to shoot a lot more to say if I like it or not. I hated the kahr trigger until I got a couple hundred rounds though it and now I actually like it better then most guns.




The issue I had on the first round is you have to make sure you pull the slide back far enough. The springs are tight and there isn't a locking mechanism on the gun. Thought I made a huge mistake when I pulled the trigger and it didn't go bang. I didn't chamber a round so I can not blame the gun. I have a feeling this can happen pretty easy on this gun.


The gun is very comfortable to shoot. Much better then the lcp I shot. Didn't feel much recoil at all.

So far I have to say this might be the best 380 on the market. In the world of 380's this gun seems to be a contender and Diamondback could be on to something.
