The gen 4 is coming
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:28:41 PM »
I received a message that Diamondback is coming out with a gen. 4  with a slide stop and sites that interchange with a glock...and a shorter reset

Looks pretty sweet!  The slide stop seems sleek enough to not snag.  Are the other dimensions the same?

It all looks interesting, but the number 1 complaint I hear about Glock is the lousy sights.  So is being compatible with them just so that we can buy aftermarket sights from aftermarket Glock stock?  Did we not like the sights that were on the DB9?

Was there a gen 3?

I never cared for them , I know some were changing with tru glow or painting. It just gives more options with all the glock replacements that are out there

How does one determine whether a three-pin DB9 is gen 2 or gen 3?

Update: Nevermind. I contacted Diamondback and they said: "Your firearm was manufactured in 12/2018. It is a Gen 3."

Yes gen 1 had two pins. Gen 2 and 3 have three pins.

What is the difference between gen 2 and gen 3?

I think that's when they splined the pins so they wouldn't move

Glock-sight compatibility for the gen 4 means we can install Glock OEM night sights or sights from independent sources. It's a huge feature.

Maybe I’ll buy one to carry instead of my LCP2. I always liked the feel of the DB.

I'm pretty interested in this one.  Hopefully it has good reviews and can become a replacement for my LCP  :main_thumbs_2up:
