So, what is the "upgraded interals" of the DB9 Gen4
« on: February 06, 2019, 08:37:05 AM »
Seems like a few people with both older and the new DB9 are posting.

Any comments or pics to the "upgraded internals" as stated by Diamondback's commercial?

Not enough of them out there yet for full reviews and reports. Hang in there... it's coming.

Not a review, just want to know exactly what got "upgrade"'d

It's in the youtube announcement. If it's just a different return spring, they are double dipping by calling it an upgrade and a shorter reset.

The recoil spring is captive (All one unit)...As far as anything else goes....I don't know or care...My last  generation worked fine...This one as well...Where it shines is the improved exterior changes...
Sights...Grip texture...Slide lock...

As they did change the mag follower, you might understand why someone who's been around the DB9 longer might be skeptical. Patiently skeptical.

Even my Gen3s didn't come with the orange followers. So I am interested in what changed.

The magazine follower would have to change as far as can tell...They have to have a step in there to push up
the slide lock after last round...It also appears that the channel were your bullet sits holds the round up more to aid in feeding...I am not a engineer but the trigger seems to have more play (travel) and a shorter reset but i do not know what if anything they changed there.

Stronger trigger springs
Metal reinforced self where the slide's recoil lug hits the grip.
Stronger trigger bar
Stronger mag spring

I hadn't replied because I don't have a previous gen to compare to, but the gen 4 does everything I need it to.  Slide locks open on last round, sights are easy to acquire, I like the orange follower, the grip feels good though not as aggressive as my M&P 2.0.  So far everything is positive but I've only got 100 rounds through it.

I will say that I'm a better shot with the 2.0.  Guess that's to be expected from a tiny handgun.

I am surprised it is kinda uncommented that the slide is longer in the Gen4.

That is a pretty different change. Anyone know why?

It definitely needs a better guide rod. Mine is flimsy and pivots. Saw one comment that his shattered. Can’t carry in this condition. Searching for replacement.
