USA – -( If you haven’t tried a 9mm carbine yet you’re missing out.

They’re less expensive to shoot, create less recoil, less noise, can be shot almost anywhere a handgun can be shot, and generally make for a fun time.

They can be used for training, to introduce new shooters, or in any of the growing new shooting sports based around the pistol-caliber carbine.

We’ve been fortunate to cover a few firearms from Diamondback Firearms.  The Florida-based company began as a boat maker (which they still make), but when their business grew to the point that they could no longer wait on third-party part sources they began making their own.  As any of us would agree to have the machinery on hand and not become a firearm manufacturer would be a waste of good machines!  Diamondback knows this well and began making tools for land-based use.

Diamondback Firearms grabbed our attention with a pocket pistol chambered in 9mm, and really got our attention with their Diamondback DB9R 9mm Carbine which shoots sub-moa and sells for under the AR-10 price barrier of $1,000.  Naturally, when we learned they were working on a 9mm rifle we wanted to give it a try.

While the internet may have some nay-sayers about Diamondback, we’ve had nothing but good fortune.  We got our hands on an early-production model of the DB9R rifle and it wasn’t perfect.  Rather than blab about issues we did took the route that benefits gun owners; we contacted Diamondback and sent it back.  Diamondback resolved the issue and the results are seen in the video above.

No complaints here.  If you’re going to invest in a firearm why not also invest the time to talk to a manufacturer if you have an issue?
