We carry the Diamondback AR15 at our store and I have to say, they seem like a well built firearm. I love the feel of the rail! I have not had a chance to shoot one yet, but hopefuly will soon enough.

All DB-15 models come with a chrome-lined barrel, with the exception of the DB-15S (our standard model) which will have a standard barrel.

The 1/9 twist OMG !!

A Commercial Extension / buffer tube !!



1-9
Even though the Best Loads for SHTF or SD,HD are the 5.56mm Bonded 62gr/64gr and the Black Hills 5.56mm 50gr TSX

And guess what the 1-9 twist can handle those loads.

Most of the guys in the know gave up the fragmenting 75gr and 77gr OTM`

BTW
Haven't ever heard of any major problems with commercial extensions since I've been at AR15.com
YOU ARE THE SAFETY !!!

Mmmm... I'm getting a silly feeling about the NiB model.

Will you be selling receiver sets along with full rifles?

At this point in time we are not selling any of our fore rails, however we are looking into the possibility of changing that in the future. Stay tuned!

We're glad you like the NiB!

We do plan on selling parts kits at some point in the future, including upper receivers, bolt carriers, etc. Details are currently being discussed. However, we currently do not plan on selling any lower receivers of any kind.

1:9 or 1:7, who cares. What does this rifle do for me that the M&P, Rock River or any other mid tier AR manufacturer do? Its just another run of the mill AR.

The FDE looks nice, but is this the same company that makes the .380 Pistol?

Knock off the bullet weight bickering and keep this thread on track. Thanks.

It starts with your head, then use your hands, if you try it in reverse, you don't even have a chance.

Are these all direct impingement or are some piston?

All of our DB15's are direct impingement.

I handled a FDE model and it seemed well finished and tight fitting. Really liked the rail.

I just sent my DB9 with ported barrel to DB today for work. They emailed a shipping label and agreed to take care of it with shipping both ways. Took my call and I had the shipping label all in one day.

Couldn't ask for more IMO.

Not to be a jerk to the OP but +1. 1:9 barrels are usually a great deal cheaper than 1:7 so it makes sense to build a rifle with one if you are cutting cost and passing it on. The cost of the rifle is higher than other mid tier AR's with 1:7 twist though. I'm not saying its cutting corners as a smaller shop usually puts more money into building the rifle than S&W or Rock River. I will say the DB-15FDE looks nice, But the standard model reminds me of a DPMS sportical for 300 bucks more. A standard plane Jane AR-15 for 850 doesn't seem like a great start, maybe I'm missing something here? The handguards might sell good for the right price point.

What is innovative about these rifles' design?
You obviously were proud enough of them to market them, what makes them stand out?

We're glad you asked! For starters, our DB15 has an all metal picatinny four-rail which is either rare or non-existent for an AR under $1,000; not to mention that it is also one of the lightest AR's on the market, weighing in at about 6.65lbs unloaded. Something else that we feel is worth mentioning is that our DB15-FDE, DB15-B, DB15-NiB, DB15-DCG, and DB15-DCT come with a fully-floated chrome-lined barrel.

I purchased a new DB-15B. So far I took it apart and inspected it and then oiled it and put 60 rounds through it at the range. I installed a set of magpul open sights and a vertical grip. I like the feel of the gun. Rifle shot well at the range i had zero problems. I just tore it down and inspected everything looked good.

We got one in when the buying frenzy hit, and to be honest, it's way better than I had expected. I expected something weak along the lines of their handguns (please don't take that personal), but they are very well built, and I wouldn't be afraid to own one myself. They are very light, and handy. Surprised the hell out of me!
