    2 factory repairs, FINALLY have the PERFECT Diamondback 380: pics!

    I finally figured out the PERFECT solution to my DIamondback 380 issues...fired once: factory replaced extractor and springs. Fired second time: trigger assy broke, factory replaced trigger assy and added a 4th trigger axis pin. Several boxes of ammo, all different brands and none of them are the now "recommended" ammo by Diamondback...their suggestion is pushing $20 for 25 rounds... The solution to shooting it a 3rd time?

    Dump it at a LGS and purchase this: Problem solved. Permanently.

    Whoa! That's some fix to be able to turn a Diamondback .380 into a Smith & Wesson Model 37. It's definitely a most satisfactory fix though.
