Diamondback DB380 review
Hopefully this will help someone out.
If you're looking for a .380 pocket pistol, keep looking. This one is a lemon.
To start. The pistol design is a lot like a Glock. Take down is even the same. It feels more substantial than a LCP or the likes, feels good in the hand, and has decent sized usable sights.
I went to break it in and tried 4 different brands of shells and had issues with them all. The pistol just will not feed. Out of 2 hours of "shooting". More like trying to shoot I became an expert at unjamming the pistol. I got through one magazine within that time that didn't have a feeding or ejecting issue. It averaged having an issue every 2-3 rounds. In comparison, my wife's LCP ate all the same ammo w/out a hiccup.
The shop I bought it from tried polishing the ramp and began to experience a FTF issue I did as well. It'll cock, you pull the trigger and it goes click, but fails to hit the primer. You recock and its about a 50/50 chance if it'll actually shoot.
Luckily the shop stands behind their product and is working to make it right. They have also pulled their stock of DB380's and are returning them.
