200 124g rounds plus 20 147g with no problems at all. I don't know if I got lucky but I love this little gun. It is a lot funner to shoot than the lcp. And it's in my pocket all the time.

I love this pistol. I have about 150 rounds through it. I only had 2 failures to feed, and those were is the fist 2 clips. Warning, this is not a target pistol! It will wear you hand out (dont let this be the first gun your wife ever shoots, cuz it might be the last). This gun was made for deep, yet powerful concealment, and it works well in that role as far as I am concerned. I carry it in scrubs in a family practice health clinic, and there is no way to tell I am armed. That is hard to do in scrubs. This gun is accurate, and appears to be well made. I would recommend this gun to anyone who needs to conceal with limited clothing options, as long as they are not recoil sensitive.

I bought my DB9 in Jan 2012 and used it a couple of times between then and July 2015, firing perhaps a couple hundred rounds through it. Then, around the end of July 2015, I used the gun for a third time and after about a dozen rounds it jammed and I was unable to clear it or field strip it. I had always heard good things about Diamondback Firearms regarding their warranty and so I returned the gun to them for repair. It is now over 6 weeks since I sent the gun to Diamondback. I still don't have the replacement and I am unable to get a rational explanation from them as to the delay. So. after firing only about 200 rounds my DB9 failed to the point that it was unrepairable. It has been over 6 weeks since the defective gun was returned to Diamondback and I am still without a replacement, and Diamondback can't even tell me when I can expect a replacement. Based on the above history, I can't recommend this product or the customer service of the company.

I really wanted to like this pistol. it is compact, light weight and was reasonably priced. Unfortunately, I have never been able to shoot a full magazine without having failures to eject or load. I have tried many different brands of ammunition and cleaned, lubricated and polished the weapon. I purcharsed 3 different new magazines from DB. None of which hepled. Finally, the pistol trigger failed to reset. I cannot fire the gun nor can I field strip it. I am waiting for word from DB as to whether they can repair it. I had to pay for shipping to DB. I will never use this pistol for concealed carry as it is very unreliable. I purchased a Ruger LC9s Pro for a little less than the DB9. It weighs more, but is almost the same size. The Ruger is it is reliable. Something the DB9 has never been.

I have fired 200 rounds through the DB9 (175 Tula/25 Critical Defense) and have not had a single malfunction. This handgun conceals perfectly in a pocket holster and goes everywhere with me. Like any small handgun, you need to practice with it to become proficient. The trigger is not quite as nice as the DB380 that I sold to get the DB9, but still much more crisp that most hammer fired pocket 9mm guns. I'm aware that when this first came out, there were possibly some issues with it, but as far as I'm concerned, they have since been resolved. Buds shipping was a bit slow in January: 16 days from the time of purchase(Jan 8) to the day it arrived at the gun shop(Jan 22). I don't think that is typical of them.

I really love this pistol for the obvious traits of it's small size and light weight. It shoots quite well for such a powerful cartridge in such a light weight gun. This was my second DB9 purchase since my first had the black finished slide and the black coating didn't hold up well. The approx. $40 extra for the EXO coating was well worth the extra money. This model and all other variants in the Diamondback DB9 series suffer from poorly designed magazines. The magazine followers will occasionally pop out through the feed lips of the magazine. The magazine springs are small and quite weak. Your DB9 may shoot great at the range one week so you load up a magazine and carry the gun for a month or two then go back to the range and experience feeding problems with the same ammo that shot fine two months ago. This happened to me recently and also happened a few months ago with my first magazine that came with the gun. I'm not willing to buy new magazines for this pistol every month. Diamondback need to address this issue as the magazine is the heart of this pistol. The only ammunition I've found that is reliable with new and broken in magazines is Rem/UMC 115 grain HP, so I'm stuck using this one specific round with my DB9.
