    Is Diamondback still having issues with their DB9, or have they improved them? My brother bought the 380 ACP 2 years ago and he had nothing but trouble with it.

    My Dad bought the DB9 last summer. It is flawless. He loves it. I've shot it several times. Much more accurate than any of the little Kel-tec 9's.

    Mine went back to DB for light strikes right after I got it but it has been 100% since getting back and 500 rounds.

    Looks like after the terrible reputation DB built with their 380 not many people are willing to try their micro nine.

    They added a third pin which they claim increased durability of the pistol.

    Had nothing but trouble with my DB9. Traded on a Kahr CW9 and am carrying that now.

    Those that had trouble, how long ago did you buy it? What kind of trouble?

    I purchased mine about a year after the DB380 came out.

    Mine had constant and very difficult to clear jams.

    Two trips back to the factory and still had jams.

    Six months ago, so the new ones still have issues.

    Seems all the online reviews love them, and reviews by actual owners are the exact opposite.
    Distribution has been taken over by Taurus. Don't know if they have any involvement other than that.
