Overview of the new Diamondback FS9 (VIDEO)

Hank Strange was given a product tour of the new Diamondback FS9, the first full-size pistol to come from Diamondback Firearms. Announced in the lead-up to this year’s NRAAM, the FS9 is a low-cost option for someone looking for a nightstand and range gun.

The FS9 was optimized to fit smaller-handed shooters and is very thin and light to boot. It is a striker-fired 9mm with a 15+1 capacity and a generous 4.75-inch barrel.

Because it’s new it doesn’t have a huge amount of aftermarket support but the gun will accept some Glock sights which is a huge pro in addition to working with soft Glock holsters.

Stores that have them already are listing the FS9 for $400 or less making this an attractive option for anyone on a budget or someone who wants a Glock-like pistol but doesn’t want that Glock-like grip. With its loaded chamber peep hole and cocked striker indicator it also has a few features not common to the Austrian pistol.
