Don't know what the street price might be. I like the new grip texture. Reminds me of the AM2, and the pinky extension looks good, too. Cool new DB9 logo. The sights may be different, too? With a slide lock and the new short reset it ought to be a winner. Good looking gun!

One month...check.  That's pretty close to my birthday!  I'll be talking to my pusher here in NC.  I'm happy with my EDC but it couldn't hurt to have a pocket carry.

Is the faster reset the only "upgraded internals"?

Why a pinkie extension and not a plus one mag?  Would have competed better with Shield, LC9s, PF9 that all have one as the alternate mag, better yet, shipping with only one mag, all you would have to include is a flat plate to meet the smaller footprint used for the marketing spec/weight/capacity.  Kudos on the slide stop/catch, clearing a jam is much easier with one than without, and also on the improved sights.  The rest looks primarily cosmetic.

I don't understand mag extensions on a pocket-carry pistol and I will remove any pinkie extensions.

The DB9 is the minimalist approach for those who make 9mm their minimum CCW caliber. I'll keep it as small as possible and carry a spare magazine.

I thought the same thing until I bought mine.  I can't hold the gun firmly enough without it.  My hand is bigger than the grip.  With the extension I can just get enough of a purchase to feel secure when it launches from recoil.  Besides, it is still completely covered in my pocket so why not take advantage of the available space?
