Working a trade show like the NASGW Expo, one hears all sorts of interesting rumors. One of the ones floating around is that Diamondback is going to introduce a new, larger pistol in 2013.
The new Diamondback pistol will be a double-stack, polymer pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. I’ve been told the gun will have a different action than the current DB380 and DB9 handguns. It is said the new gun will be striker fired.
One of the interesting things I am hearing is that the new Diamondback pistols will interchange with many Glock holsters and accessories. Assuming the company navigates around any trademark and patent issues, this would be a big benefit to the company and consumer, as there would not need to be a ramp up period for popular products to be fitted for the new gun.
I spoke with the Diamondback reps yesterday about their DB9 and DB15 lines. They said that they have been very busy with plenty of orders to keep them busy. With a positive cash flow, it would be easy to see how a smaller company would want to invest back into their product line to expand their market share.
The information I have is pretty solid, but I wish to stress that it is a rumor only (at this point). We will see what we see at the 2013 SHOT Show.
