How about a DB9 with extended mag, night sights, ported barrel, Cody tested, and a last round lock back?  Wait a minute, I have one of those...except for the lock back.  Okay, how about my DB9 with a last round lock back?  I would buy it again.

Thank you DB!!!

I don't want porting but agree on everything else.  I also realize there is a reason that the last round lock back wasn't designed in, as the weight of any metal parts like a slide release, would have exceeded the overall weight goal, pushing it up nearer competitors like the PF9.  However, I too would be willing to bear that small increase. 

I don't understand their reluctance on producing a matching +1 extension, their profit margin on it would be almost as much as what they make on the entire pistol, turning a bunch of past customers into buyers again, without having to find a whole new customer.  If it doesn't come stock, it doesn't add to their weight spec, yet overcomes a whole lot of objections versus the competition, like a Shield, Nano, LC9, PF9, that have that extra round.  They need to hire me to grow sales, I'd be happy to move to Florida, winter is getting closer here in Kansas City.

8-9" AR in large  caliber  450 bushmaster or 50 Beowulf. Same handguard you have on the blackout pistol. Add a arm brace. :main_thumbs_2up:

Nothing Exotic, very simple, a plus one mag for the DB9, so my pinkie has a home, that matches the OEM grip pattern/stippling of the DB9 .

Also helps the DB9 compete on a feature for feature basis with Shield, Nano, etc. 

The two mag extensions on the market now just don't cut it, the Pearce extension isn't well designed and the other one on the market from ccw mfg is well designed but cost is $40 each. At $40, it should already come preinstalled on a spare mag at the very least, or two extensions for that price?  Bet DB would have a higher margin % on an extended mag than you get on the guns themselves!

PS - My DB9 wish list also includes a tritium front sight, painting them with Glow On just doesn't cut it.

Everything I said back then still stands and has been proven by Diamondback when you started selling the CCW mag extension on the DiamondbackFirearms site for a more reasonable $ 29, and it sold out.  It doesnt take a marketing genius to figure out there is clearly a $30/mag market for a 7 round mag!  How hard would it be to design the matching extension and have the supplier who is already supplying the molded polymer flat mag bases, make a run of matching extensions? Its not about the round count, its about giving your pinkie a home.

Replacement trigger springs stronger than factory ones for my DB9. Galloway made them and quit. I have had several failures to reset. I spread the factory ones a little wider apart and that has done the trick for now. But who knows for how long?

Change DB9 magazine followers with a stronger plastic. Yours get chewed up very quickly using ammo that does not harm all my other brand firearms.KIMG0189.JPGWhat would you like to see us come out with next?

Question for a DiamondBack Rep:  With this thread started back last 2/17, has any of these requests been implemented?  I have been watching this thread for a year, as I am interested in a DB9, but was curious if any new features have been added, thus creating a Gen3?  Thanks!  -Tim

We came out with the AM2, even though its still going through some changes. We released the DB1547 (7.62x39). The DB9 is still going through some changes. Some things take a year or sometimes longer to plan and test new ideas. We still have a few things in the works so stay tuned.

Thank you for your quick reply.  With a "few things in the works," do you have a timeline on releasing any info about the new DB9 version?  I'm very interested in purchasing one,  pending on how long of a wait for the new release to be revealed.

If you're still looking for suggestions, how about the capability of adding a Crimson Trace to a DB9.

We released the DB1547 (7.62x39).

Thanks!  I noticed from the specs that the twist is 1:9.5

Why?  I thought the heavier the bullet weight the lower the twist (value).  For example, a 55 grain 5.56 round likes the 1:9, but a 77 grain would perform better with a 1:8.

This seems to go the other way.  I'm just learning this stuff so I welcome more information.
