I wonder if it is a problem with the barrel?

I disassembled and cleaned the mags before this range session. I have the Kel tec springs in them.

Same failure with both mags? I tend to want to blame the mags first if there are feed issues.
DB9 / Starting to have feed problems
« Last post by 4given on Today at 12:25:02 PM »
Well, I took my DB9 to the range  Saturday with two boxes of Critical Defense.  I decided I wanted to shoot a few through it and with the thought of carrying them again since the tests I posted looked so good.  I could not get through a magazine without one or more FTF jams. I gave up after 25 rounds. I was bummed.

So I whipped out the trusty Remington 115 JHP  to build my confidence back up and guess what? More FTF jams! Not every mag but every other mag. I shot 50 rounds and gave up.
I am truly disheartened. I thought I had this pistol all dialed in and have been carrying it with confidence but I have had two disappointing range sessions with it since. I can no longer trust it.   This thing was sparkling clean, inspected and properly lubed. Everything looked good and there should have been no problems.

Oh well, back to pocket carrying my trusty TCP.  It has always run flawlessly.  I don’t know what to do from here.  I have run several  hundred dollars worth of ammo through this gun  and here I am back to square one.

Google that question and see all the issues people have with their cotter pins. Mostly not being able to get it back in. I keep spare cotter pins on hand for that very problem. I think it's a great idea to have a cross bolt like that. First I've seen it.   :main_thumbup_ncc:
DB9 / Re: DB9 Good or bad

Diamondback split from Taurus some time ago. The entire arrangement was evidently a mess for DB, as they lost full control and had their hands tied. I think it was a great move to dump them. From what I have seen or read from users, DB has come a long way with their customer support, and it appears most people are happy with the performance. Some glitches here and there, but keeping in mind that most satisfied owners don't post praises on a regular basis. But not so with those that have problems and need to vent about it. Overall, though, to me, things appear to be much better these days. YMMV if you're one of the ones that's had a problem gun.  :main_sad_ncc:

Speaking of problems, check out Sig's new offering of the P365. Holy cow. They've supposedly have corrected the issues and re-started shipping. I think it's the same for most manufacturers. Problems happen, they get fixed, and most everyone's happy again.

Most folks have probably noticed that DB has really started putting out new offerings in a big way. Rifles and caliber options for everyone! I'm glad to see it. Means business is good and they're not struggling with developing new offerings.

To answer your question more directly, yes, the DB9 has improved over the years. I've read of very few DB9 complaints since the latest internal redesign, which includes the one I've got. I also bought one for my son, and he prefers to carry it over his other carry gun, a nice, but chunky Sig P290.

Now I'm looking forward to see what the new DB AM2 is like.  :main_smile:
DB9 / DB9 Good or bad

So I am back in the market for a small ccdw gun. I am looking at either the Lcp II or the DB9. I would prefer to go 9mm but dont want something very large. Anyone tell me how the Db9 is doing now. Are they reliable, better then they used to be? Recoil isnt at issue for me, I have shot one before several times, it was so so with ball ammo, Did well with the Xtp rounds but didnt shoot many due to cost. Can anyone give me a yay or nay on buying one. Also any idea on how their service is doing, ive seen reports of repairs straying into the Taurus realm of delays and taking months to get them back. Problem is everything you find on google is years old, nothing recent. Thanks all

Just bought a DB10 in 6.5 Creedmoor. Took the bolt carrier out to disassemble and am confused about the firing pin retainer. Wasn't expecting a screw in the retainer. I am new to ARs and the instructions Don't explain it too well.
DB10 / Aftermaket parts and warranty question
« Last post by Nexus6 on March 17, 2018, 09:14:58 PM »
Hi, all

New to the forum, and this is my first post. I've been to the range a few times, and my rifle runs extremely well, and have no issues with performance. I'm a lefty, so I ordered some ambidextrous parts for my DB308G2B. I ordered a Rainier arms Raptor charging handle and a Seekins Ambi safety selector. The Raptor charging handle did not fit, and the safety lever does not work very well. I started doing some reading, but the posts were from a few years ago. I was wondering if any knows of a good aftermarket Ambi charging handle and safety selector ?

The second part is while I was doing some reading, a few people stated they spoke with someone at DB about an adjustable gas block and was informed that it would void their warranty. Is this still true ? I have a suppressor in ATF jail right now, and would like to install an adjustable gas block.
