Diamondback FS Nine full-size pistol review (VIDEO)

While Diamondback Firearms is best known for their pocketable concealed-carry handguns and their AR-15 rifles and pistols this year they announced a first for them, a full-size double-stack 9mm, the DB FS Nine.

It’s starting to show real promise in the world of wallet-friendly handguns with the first reports being fairly positive.

With a standard capacity of 15+1, a generous 4.75-inch barrel and a contoured grip, this is one gun we’re looking forward to putting through the wringer. Unloaded it weighs just 21.5 ounces and it measures in at one inch wide. It could be just the ticket for someone in need of a full-size handgun on a limited budget. Real-world prices are a bit under $400; for that we’ll forgive them for shipping with a single mag.
