I have no idea who they are but when I saw the price I figured I could probably get something better in their price range.

Diamondback Firearms is based in FL.
The people running Diamondback Firearms have decades of experience making airboats.

The DB-380 was the first firearm they ever designed/produced.
The first several runs (serial number series starting with ZA to ZC) of the DB-380 were not very reliable and had lots of problems (FTF, FTE, parts breakages). The current production (serial number series starting with ZD) of DB-380s are suppose to be better.

The DB-9 is the second firearm they've designed. So far, it is not available.

Kahr Arms is currently suing Diamondback Firearms for patent infringements.


Kahr Arms Pursues Patent Infringement Lawsuit
April, 2011

PEARL RIVER, NY – Kahr Arms, the award-winning manufacturer of compact pistols based in Worcester, Mass, is currently engaged in a patent infringement lawsuit against Diamondback Firearms, LLC, the maker of compact .380 ACP and 9mm pistols based in Cocoa, Florida.

Seven U.S. patents cover Kahr’s unique locking, firing and extraction systems. The incomparable cocking cam trigger system employs a patented cam to both unlock the passive safety and complete cocking and releasing of the firing pin. The system provides a “safe cam action” and unbelievably smooth double action only trigger stroke, fast to fire in critical defensive situations.

These innovations found only in the Kahr pistol give the Kahr shooter an advantage in self-defense, home protection and duty or off duty use. The Kahr design is original, creating the smallest package possible in four defensive calibers – 9mm, .40S&W, .45 ACP and the .380 ACP. Kahr has been producing compact pistols in Worcester since the early 1990s, and in the process has carved out a market segment for concealed pistol carry by properly licensed civilians and law enforcement personnel. In recent years, this market segment has attracted the attention of a number of large and small companies vying to gain market share as the larger pistol market has slowed down.

Kahr has been a leader and innovator in this market segment with over 40 different pistol configurations consisting of steel and polymer frames, four calibers and five barrel lengths. Kahr will continue to take necessary steps to protect their patented innovations.

Their grip angle looks old timey to me.

I was very interested in a .380, but after reading many many bad reviews I was kind of leery of buying one, but I still was considering it, then I held it, and nope it's not for me, I thought teh bigger grip would be great, but it just doesn't feel right in my hand, same as Glocks dont, I prefer my Kahr and the LCP I owned much more.

But I have seen some members here who prefer the Diamond backs over their LCP's

It has very high grip, see how the "beavertail" is way up there?
I think they are trying to get a three finger grip for larger hands.
