DB9FS discontinued?
« on: October 24, 2018, 11:41:18 PM »
I went to look up some specs on m FS9 and now don't see it listed under pistols.
Has it been discontinued? If so, what will be the warranty on my handgun?

I couldn't find it either. Maybe the AM2 replaced it?

we still make it on occasion and we still have parts for the FS9 so dont feel like you will be without repair or parts.

I was able to find the specs using the Search function box, DB9FS.

Just a FYI.....The description heading starts with "ABOUT THE DB380" for the DB9FS.....

Matthew **** Hope they work better than the DB9

I asked the exact same question and get a "What I want to hear" answer.  :main_angry:

Parts available??...at what kind of time frame. Took over 6 weeks to get a replacement slide due to a breakage.
When I did receive it it had a lesser finish than the original finish that wore off in less than 6 months. They sent me a replacement "natural" finish, which I don't find appealing.

Wanted a AM2..waited and waited. No worthwhile reviews. Wasn't available. Now it's already in redesign!!??

I finally purchased 2 other handguns from another maker.

My confidence is falling like a rock........................... ...

Coming to a point on what to do with my FS9.

Released in 2014(?). 2018 - Pistol is now discontinued.

Purchased in 2016.  In 4 years since release, No aftermarket support. Dependent on factory for any parts. For how long?

Do I put in the safe as a range toy or try to sell it..They don't command much...opinions?

Time for a 9mm handgun with a proven aftermarket parts availability??....1911, Glock, S&W M&P?
