It's plastic, black and striker fired; that's where the similarities end.

Lots of reported problems. They say they're better now but still sketchy. That said, I still want one.

Mine has been nothing but problems. It's at the factory right now, I've requested it be replaced but we'll have to wait and see.

I love the gun and really want it to work.

I couldn't even get anywhere near 200rds through it. After the first 35 rounds it went to crap on me, and was promptly sent back to Diamondback on there dime.

Got it back and after another 50-60 it started doing the same thing.

The block with the rear rails is really loose in the frame, hopefully that's the problem.

I own or have owned an LCP, KT P32, KT P3AT, Kahr P380, Ruger LCP, Taurus TCP, Sig P238 and S&W Bodyguard .380; out of all of them the Diamondback feels the best in my hands and would be the one I would carry if it worked. For now i'll stick with my second choice the Bodyguard.

For the record, I don't have a .380 fetish, I build holster for a living.
