That's what they are telling me. We'll see how it turns out, I'll make sure to keep it this updated.

That would be great.  Much appreciated!!

The gen4 was just released, as an improvement over the gen3.

If they didn't get the guide rod right, which DB changed...

There is too much praise in this thread. Where this appreciation of DB fixing it is a bit off and not founded.

This is absolutely no cause to assume it's going to be fixed until the new one comes (replacing all gen4s?) and NEW high round counts come out...

I agree there is too much praise. Mine is going to sit in the safe unused until/if they ever figure things out. I am wondering if Diamondback should adopt a catchy brand slogan?!
May I humbly opinion- "Diamondback, a good percentage of our firearms function properly".

Many give these gun manufacturers too much slack, they all say "Don't worry [insert brand here] will make it right." That would be great if every gun was a range toy. This should be unacceptable for any gun designed for self defense. Hard to make it right if the gun fails & you're dead.

Every five shots of testing is approx a dollar out of pocket next thing you know you have wasted more on ammo than the pistol is worth. Great if you find it is reliable, if not it is a total waste. Folks are sending them back to Diamondback to fix and they come back STILL unreliable. Good grief! :Main_thumbdown2:

My concern is that the new guide rod will be of the same design as the original 4th Gen guide rod.

Say ditto to the last 7 (?) posts!

Been on the road, so I've yet to take my replacement DB9 Gen4 to the range...

So.....I've left it in the safe and carried my trusty P89 during this trip.

Just don't have the confidence in the DB9 and not sure how much I'll have even after the range, regardless of the results.

As I've posted in another topic, feel I've thrown away money after I getting it...
Had high hopes for it's potential.

It and the Sig P365 could've OWNED this market and sold them for decades to loyal buyers.

My DB9 is still with them so I can’t add anything here. They’ve had it for 3 or 4 weeks, the discrepancy is when UPS said someone sign for it vs when their email said they got it. I’m not gonna rush them though  :main_whistling:
