DB9 / Re: Slide not locking back after last round fired

Good for you! But stretched springs very quickly return to their previous state. Some people have cut a coil off the Kel-Tec PF-9 mag springs.

DB9 / Re: Slide not locking back after last round fired

Thanks for the info. I just opened up each mag and stretched the mag springs slightly. Then when I inserted each empty mag and pulled back the slide it locked every time. I didn’t have to apply upward pressure from the bottom of the mags either. So it appears that the cause of the problem could be the mag springs. I will confirm after I test at the range next week. I appreciate your help!

I have had this happen with the mag's with the black followers over time. They wore down and would no longer stay open.  Or push it in to stay open. Diamond Back sent me new followers. You can see wear points on this post http://www.diamondbackforum.com/index.php?topic=4567.0  Now these are the black ones. But could be happening with the new orange ones.

Thanks. Both mags are relatively new. Each mag has feed approximately 250 rounds respectively. I just checked them and the followers don’t appear to be worn. The slide stop also looks fine. When I compared the spring tension of the slide lock lever on the DB9 gen4 with the slide locks on my two Taurus G2Cs the DB 9 tension on the spring is at least twice as much as on both Taurus pistols. Also, When I remove the slide on the DB9 and use my thumb to push up the slide lock lever it requires much more pressure compared to that on the Taurus pistols.

I'd check to see if the corner of mag follower which forces up the slide stop is worn. Then I'd check the slide stop notch in the slide and the area of the slide stop that engages the slide.

Since the mag follower is made from polymer it can easily wear down.

Thanks. I’ve tried that with both mags that were previously working and it won’t lock back; however if I apply upward pressure from the base of the mag the slide will lock back using either mag.

With an empty chamber place an unloaded mag in the pistol and slowly retract the slide. Does the mag catch pop up and hold the slide back?

DB9 / Slide not locking back after last round fired

On my most recent trip to the range my DB9 gen4’s slide did not lock back after the last round was fired. This happened with two different mags that on every prior occasion locked back the slide after firing the last round.  I have shot approximately 500 rounds with this pistol using these two mags and never experienced this problem before. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I’ve contacted Diamondback and they said that they will send me a replacement slide lock. Thanks

DB FS Nine / AM2 as the new FS9??
« Last post by Chris on April 16, 2019, 09:13:46 PM »
It appears as if the stout and highly reliable AM2 chassis is going to be the heart of the new FS9 frame and barrel. I think it's in experimental stages at this point, but I think this might just happen. I personally think the AM2 is fine as it is without the need of a longer barrel or larger overall size. I mean, really, isn't 17 rounds with their extended magazine enough? With a spare mag you have 34 rounds, so isn't that also enough? The AM2 will easily handle +P and most likely +P+, even if they don't advertise the +P+.

Instead on focusing on larger sized 9mm handguns, I would instead offer up caliber variations, right up to and including 10mm (no 45's please...too fat). The AM2 in 10mm would be the ONLY handgun of its size in that caliber, and would be a crazy ass hit in the 10mm world. Think about it. An easily concealable 10mm IWB carry gun. C'mon DB, you're the badass guys that came up with the crazy 11oz 9mm pocket rocket. Extend your bravery to the AM2 with a 10mm. Be there, or be square!

Don't make me call Trump!
