Picked up a used DB380 for $120
« on: September 06, 2018, 12:45:33 PM »
So a buddy of mine sold me his DB380, I was with him when he bought it brand new and it only has about 30 rounds through it. With transfer and the price of the gun was $120.00, I think I got a great deal on it now this weekend ill be making a range trip. FINGERS CROSSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice pickup!  Make sure to have a firm hold on it in order for it to cycle well.

I'm calling local law enforcement...you stole that DB380!
Make sure it's clean and lubed.
What's the first 2 letters of the serial number? ZC, ZE...ZF? i.e. Gen 1 or Gen 2?
I have a ZExxxx Gen 1 and it's great, but I hear the Gen 2 are even better and possibly require less break-in/fluff-and-buff than older models.

I couldn't pass it up, even though it has maybe 30 rounds through it he said there were no problems with it. I did clean and lube it so it will be ready to go when I go to the range. It is a first gen and off the top of my head I cant remember what the serial number starts with. I will defiantly find that info out when I get home.

well I took the DB380 to the range this weekend I put 8 mags of rounds through it and every mag had one FTE "failure to extract" mostly the 2nd or 3rd round in the mag. I don't know if it is a mag problem or if the gun needs broken in, but I will get more ammo and head back out to the range. Ill keep yinz posted.
