Re: Diamondback .380
Paraphrased from that article from Carver.
"The reliability part is paramount. The pocket pistol is a last-ditch weapon that is carried for the grave purpose of saving one’s hide. It must work one hundred percent of the time."
Not this gun. Mind you I only see the bad ones but I trust these about as much as I trust my 5 yr old to flush. I've posted else ware on these too. There is a design flaw with the firing pin. It sits loose in the channel between shot and when you finger is pulling the trigger. Sensitive enough primer it can slam fire when the next round is loaded. Not to mention the pin can stick in the primer and in the channel and cause a ejection issue or if your real lucky it will stick in the breech face and cause a feed issue. This is the most common issue I see. I'm not the guru of guns and I'm not quick to throw hate towards any one specific brand but I know when I see a problem, this gun has problems.
Just a quick addition. DO NOT dry fire the gun then try to load one in the chamber, ain't gonna happen. You must drop the mag, rack the slide to reset the pin, then reinsert the mag and go ahead and load. For us that Israeli carry, no thanks.
Only cowards shoot with their eyes closed....
