While best known for its compact polymer handguns in .380 ACP and 9 mm, Diamondback Firearms also produces rifles and it just introduced a full-size polymer handgun in 9 mm-the DB FS Nine.

This 9 mm pistol is a double-action, striker-fire handgun, incorporating an ergonomic, polymer, double-stack frame with a stainless-steel slide. With extensive research on the form and function of the grip, the operator will find the design enhances control, while providing consistent hand placement.

The flared magwell aids in fast and reliable reloads, while the extended magazine base pad provides a secure grip during loading, handling and shooting.

Diamondback has incorporated a trigger safety and firing pin block safety, with a short, positive reset to minimize trigger travel for faster cycle times. A cocking indicator is located at the rear of the slide, providing visual and tactical recognition. For quick target acquisition, fixed three-dot sights are mounted onto the stainless slide.

Both front and rear tactical serrations provide firm engagement between the user's hand and the slide, allowing for a better grip during manipulation. The dust cover has an integrated MIL-STD1913 Picatinny rail for tactical lights, lasers and other accessories, extending its versatility for everyday carry, home-defense, training or use on the range. The 4.75-inch Chromemoly barrel provides a long, 6.25-inch sight radius, aiding the overall accuracy of the pistol during practice and competition.
