Stainless slide is an upgrade for sure.  I say hop on it since they are offering it.  In the meantime gl on ur new gun search.

All the slides are made of stainless steel. SS is passivated. The black slide has a PX5 black oxide finish.

I believe ALL the slides are passivated then the black oxide is applied for a final finished product.
This is why I don't feel a "bare" slide is an upgrade. It is a halfway finished part.

They don't even offer a two tone FS9 for sale. Just Ghost Grey and Black. Both with a black slide.

This looks like a great forum for DiamondBack lovers.  I live in Ben Wheeler, TX, the feral hog capital of Texas.  I use my DiamondBack AR-15 every night and shoot great video with my thermal scope.  Check out my Thermal Predator Hunting YouTube page...  HansETX

IMHO, the difference between 11oz and 17-18oz is huge in terms of perceived carry weight, and thus why the DB9 is with me more than my Ruger these days.

My sentiments exactly.  :main_smiley:

Going to work through it with different ammo this time and try to break it in.  Perhaps theres a specific ammo this likes.  I guess we wait and see.

Well said, and much like you, I have a LC9s that was my EDC but keeps getting passed over for the DB9 that is not only much lighter, but actually fits in my back jeans pocket without sticking out (I use a Boraii pocket holster).

For all the naysayers, remember that a gun this small and light is stretching the envelope on basic physics, having enough mass in the slide to cycle and a frame that flexes just enough to take the stress without breaking.  If any little thing is interfering with the cycle, like ammo hanging up or especially limp wristing that bleeds part of the recoil energy in a direction other than back and forth, yes, you will generally get a jam.  This was true in all my lightweight 9s, the Keltec PF9 is just as sensitive as the DB9, and my SCCY CPX2 and Ruger LC9s are susceptible but not nearly as sensitive as they both weigh approximately 50% more than the DB9's 11oz.  If you want rock solid reliability and tolerance for less than perfect form, most 9s are well over 20oz, double the weight of the DB9.

IMHO, the difference between 11oz and 17-18oz is huge in terms of perceived carry weight, and thus why the DB9 is with me more than my Ruger these days.
