    I am confident that the Diamondback DB9 is the result of a Glock 26 mating with a Kel-Tec P3AT.

    There can be no other explanation for the way that this pistol looks.

    Weight 11oz...Total Length 5.6inchs..Width .80...best of all it has a 5lb trigger pull! thats a smaller firearm than the Ruger LC9 with a better trigger pull.

    It has great potential for the pocket 9 market.

    G26 Length: 6.29 inches, width 1.18 inches, weight 19.75 oz trigger: 5.5lbs
    DB9 Length: 5.6 inches, width .80 "tenths of an inch!, weight 11 oz (thats lighter than my airweight! jframe @ 14oz)

    but the G26 is a totally different firearm, wouldn't even call it a pocket, bug, or back up..more of a off duty carry, plus it's a double stack magazine

    the Diamondback would be more a second carry in the pocket or for me in my body armor vest or ankle..i still like my j frame airweight though because I know it'll go bang..

    The DB9 is extremely small and light. I'm fairly certain it will be the leader as far as dimensions and weight in the pocket 9 category. It is only slightly bigger and heavier than the DB380, which is almost exactly the same size as the LCP/P3AT. I hope it works well. A lot of the gunmakers seemed to really struggle to make their pocket 9s as small as they are; Diamondback will have blown them all well out of the water if their DB9 works well.

    I agree about the G26 - totally different category.

    Anyway, though - I just wish all these darned pocket 9s would be released already!

    I called them a few weeks ago...the DB9 is NOT rated for +p ammo. FYI, if that matters to you.

    On the DB boards, a DB employee said that shooting +P in the 380 or 9mm will void the warranty - just for everyone's FYI, since I know a lot of people here prefer +P.

    Even at standard pressure, I wonder how shooting 9mm in a pistol that is ~11 oz unloaded is going to feel...

    I am guessing shooting the DB9 will feel like shooting my 12 oz Keltec PF9 !!! God Bless

    If you all have a facebook account, here are three comparison pictures between the DB380 and DB9. You'll see they are very close in size - extremely impressive.

    They also posted a quick testing update on the DB forums:

    Glad to hear everyone who has the 380 loves it. I would like to consider also the 9mm but just can't see myself shooting it much at the range. I hate to buy a gun I can't shoot that much. I know it's more of a ccw gun but still like to shoot all my guns. Sure would be nice to have.

    I have the .380 DB as a BUG and it shoots suprisingly soft with the double heavy recoil spring assembly. If the DB9 has the same set up and I hear it does then this should soften the recoil some but any 11oz. 9mm is going to be to punishing for this old arthritic guy. The Federal 9 BP is an excellent standard velocity round that I carry in my 1964 T-Series Hi-Power and has good street results.

    Does anyone have a solid date on when the DB9 will be in a neighborhood near you?
