Diamondback .32 NAA Conversion

If I recall correctly, I got to see a .32 NAA version of the Diamondback pistol at the 2011 Media Day at the Range.  Diamondback published this video of a barrel conversion for the DB380.

If you aren’t familiar with the .32 NAA, it is a bottle neck pistol cartridge that uses a necked-down .380 ACP case.  Generally, the .32 NAA cartridges will use the same .380 magazines, so a simple barrel change is all one needs to run the new ammo in the gun.  It works a lot like the .357 SIG/.40 S&W barrel swaps.


Suppressed Diamondback DB9, DB380

A few months back, reported that Diamondback Firearms had teamed up with Thompson Machine to make a suppressed DB380.  Now it seems they are doing the same for the DB9 9mm pistol. (Check out my article: Diamondback DB9 Gen 4 Review.)

American Rifleman is reporting that Diamondback is producing suppressed versions of the DB9 pistol now.  There is no mention of this on the Diamondback site, but American Rifleman writers saw the pistol at the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers show held earlier this month.
