You might consider upgrading your 380 with the stainless barrel and magazine combo on the Diamondback website store.  The new barrel has a different feed ramp and together with the new mag, that might clear up any feed issues.

Greetings folks.  The reason for my forum handle "The Original Jim" was because I was a really early adopter of the Diamondback db380, and an early member of the forerunner to this forum, called "Diamondback Talk."  After a lot of fiddling around trying to get my db380 to run reliably,  I gave up and put it away for a while.

After many years, I decided to dig it out a month or two back, and started looking to see if there was anything new to help solve my db380 problem.  That's when I discovered the old forum was gone, and this one was here.  So that's the story.

Of course, a lot has happened, including a new generation of Diamondbacks, but I'm still hoping to get my Gen 1 running.  Anyway, nice to meet you all.  I look forward to lurking and contributing, as well.

I have done some more reading on the Galloway springs and it seems that there are problems with light strikes.

I have had no problems so far with my stock Ruger guide rod assembly.

Rather than redesigning the whole thing,  it would seem a simple fix would be to secure the end plate on the stock rod in a more robust manner like with a screw or something.

Galloway Precision makes no bones about what they can produce. Sometimes their products are 100% and at other times there may be products that live on the bleeding edge of hope. They make no bones about it. However, if they don't try, most likely no one else in this arena will, and no one gets that chance to experiment with their ingenuity.

I can't say enough great things about Galloway. Eric is so very dedicated to produce parts that we all can take advantage of in our pursuit of perfection, that it seems inconceivable that his products are relegated to normal everyday production.  He's a top notch a+ personality perfectionist. Take advantage of that while you can!

Have you looked at these? https://gallowayprecision.com/ruger/lc9s/captured-sure-feed-guide-rod-assembly-for-Ruger-lc9s/

Yes. Problem with that system is that the reduced power striker spring compensates for the lower amount of recoil spring power. In other words, in order to get the slide to go into battery reliably with the new recoil assembly, the striker assembly cannot have a strong (original) striker spring. A reduced power striker spring allows the assembly to go into battery, but it's not guaranteed. The system, although well thought out, meets the physical limits of what the recoil assembly can provide. Can it work? Yes. Will it work 100% of the time? I have no idea of those statistics.

The LC9s captured spring/guide rod came apart while shooting. The end plates that capture the spring are merely staked in place, and it didn't hold. It took quite some time and tricks to get it apart on my bench. Ruger replaced the guide rod assembly immediately, but upon further inspection, the end plate staking job looks questionable to me. It may never come apart again, but I don't trust it. I'm hoping BT Guide Rods decides to produce their system for the LC9S (I requested), but I haven't seen anything yet.

Until that incident, I really enjoyed shooting it. Great trigger, and low recoil.
