Read times. BanxJ Contributor Posts: I have the chance to pick one up locally for what i feel to be a great price. Are these ar's any good? Never handled one, never shot one but they seem to be popping up more and more. If they are decent, i am going to pick one up and either use as is or use as a host gun for a build.

And he says there solid. The had some issues cuz there's still working the kinks out. They have the blackout and models in stock. Im not really sure which one id get yet. You know how I feel about blackout. Arizonagunsmith Sr.
Member Posts: Not unless Taurus acquired them recently. Diamondback split off from Keltec. A couple of Sr Engineers grew wary of leadership and feared they would be making a product comparable to the ill fated Remington R51 in the near future so they took off before their reputations were sullied.
Started up Diamondback. I've held a few pistols but not shot any. The little ones feel like Keltecs, no shock there. Their full sized offering is a little on the heavy side and felt clunky to me. It isn't dialed in yet. That being said, I have more faith in the AR platform itself than the companies that make them.
It is a tried and true design. As long as they use quality parts it should be OK and I have to think following their strategy to leave Keltec it would be. As long as it isn't polymer still not sold on that yetI'd say you are good to go. Haven't heard a bad thing about any of their guns yet.
The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper. Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.
The main reason i was considering the was only because i have plenty of rifles, though i do agree that its a somewhat pointless round. Ive handled their handguns and i wasnt impressed.User Name Remember Me? Not a lot of info available on these. Anyone have any experience, good or bad?

Remove Advertisements. Thanks for the replies. I had decided not to get it because of the price mostly. I like the fact that it is made in USA, and though there aren't a lot of reviews, they are very positive.
Now I'm not sure,again. Life's tough. Trent12 likes this. Combat Diver. I looked at on two months ago in Bismark ND. Heard did talk to one owner of one of the DB. Did see that they are made in NC. I passed as I wanted to build a 6. Seems I'll be building one now. Thanks for the link Trent, did i see twist????AR-15 Short-Stroke carbonaraadheera.fun!

Here are a couple of links to the Diamondback rifles. Pretty interesting, lots of "cool-aid". Diamondback is from what I can tell, a completely different company than the DiamondBack that had a lot of problems in the past.
I still don't think I can come to spent close to a grand for a "pig in a poke". I don't shoot paper except for load development, just pigs and varmints.
Diamondback DB15 Pistol Review
Link goes to the 5. The 7. Last edited by Tomanyguns; at PM.Log in or Sign up. Sep 13, 1. I'm considering buying a Diamondback DB10 rifle, does anybody know if it is a good quality rifle in it's price range? The few reviews and opinions I've managed to find are mostly positive except one broken extractor report. But what bothers me is that it is suspiciously cheap.
On the local Polish market it is a little over half the price of any other AR style gun. Is it a good deal or waste of money in terms of quality?
I don't have very specific requirements, just extending my collection with a scary, black, semi-auto rifle in full power rifle caliber. I would be even more happy if it also had decent accuracy on meters with some optic. McMonsterSep 13, Dallas53 likes this. Sep 13, 2. AR10 type rifles usually are going to be more expensive than AR15 type rifles. Dallas53Sep 13, Sep 14, 3. I have shot one. They seem to be well made and the one I fired had no issues, though I have no experience with other AR's to compare it to.
Sep 15, 4. Is it worth the few extra bucks in terms of accuracy? McMonsterSep 15, Sep 15, 5.Federal law requires firearms to be shipped to FFL Dealers.

You may have heard stories of AR jamming, failure to feed, and short stroke and wonder what causes them. Maybe you need to know how to clear a double feed. Let's take a look at the common stoppages and malfunctions of the AR and help you with some of those mysteries. At one time, or another, it is likely that you will encounter a situation where your AR doesn't behave as you expect it to. You might squeeze the trigger and find it gives only a little and feels mushy or it might give a click while nothing else happens.
Simply put, a stoppage is any situation where your AR fails to complete a cycle of operation. Stoppages may be caused by simple human error or by mechanical malfunction. Many basic stoppage situations can be remedied immediately in the field and will not necessarily repeat themselves.
Diamondback Firearms DB15 AR-15
If you have ever failed to chamber the first round and pulled the trigger with no results, you have experienced a stoppage caused by human error. Obviously this stoppage is a simple one to resolve, other stoppages may be more complicated and have mechanical roots. These are malfunctions of your AR system.
In fact, the going estimate is that 90 to 95 percent of all stoppages can be resolved with a quick run through of this process. Most of the stoppages that are cleared in this manner would be considered type 1, simple stoppages that may not have a specific known source. The stovepipe jam is simply diagnosed. The appearance of a stovepipe jam is the source of its moniker.
When this particular type of jam occurs, a piece of spent ammunition, empty brass if you will, is caught in the ejection port, causing an obstruction to the chamber or feed-way. The brass was extracted properly, but did not eject and is pinned in the ejection port by the bolt face. To resolve a stovepipe jam that you have visually identified, you may simply be able to sweep across the ejection port and dislodge the offending empty with a simple hand motion.
The other ten percent will require the operator to use his or her fingers to clear the brass by sweeping them though the magazine well. This is a double-feed. The double-feed is only made worse by the fact that your buffer spring is keeping pressure on the problem. The first thing you will need to do is pull the bolt back and lock it in the rearward position.
While we consider the double-feed a simple stoppage, magazine function often contributes to this type of stoppage. Yes, prevention is the key to this one. There are plenty of guys running 29 rounds in round magazines who never have to figure out how to clear a double feed.
A malfunction is a failure of the mechanical, or working parts of the AR system or a failure of the ammunition itself. AR malfunctions may be due to an irregularity in the performance of the rifle itself, the magazine used to deliver ammunition to the rifle or a problem with the ammunition itself. There are several common categories of malfunction. The most common AR malfunctions are: failure to feed, failure to fire, short stroke, failure to eject, and failure to extract.
A failure to feed is a malfunction that can happen as you initially load your rifle or during a firing cycle. If you are having issues with failure to feed, you may find that you have a common problem with your magazine. Before you go any further, simply be sure that your magazine is loaded properly and solidly seated.
If In doubt, rip it out and replace it with another fresh magazine. There is a school of thought that believes the proper loading of a magazine is an art of sorts. You need to be sure you are using enough force to properly seat the magazine without being so rough that you dislodge ammunition. Either of which will inevitably cause AR jamming.
Categorized as a failure to chamber or feed, the simple problem of an improper lock due to a magazine that is either setting against the ground or influenced by forward pressure will create a malfunction that is easily remedied by using tap and tug and keeping your magazine clear of the ground and other obstacles.Yes Sir.
The barrel is stamped 5. Yes it will you can shoot. Any AR 15 stamped 5. Yes you can Roberto. Any 5. No worries here. Michael, this beautiful rifle was messed up in my opinion with a Carbine Length Gas Impingement System. It uses a gas-impingement system and high quality CNC machined components. The DB15 model features a chrome moly barrel, forged T6 aluminum lower and upper receiver, no sights, and a carbine length gas system.
This model has a 16" black melonite barrel with an muzzle brake, an Adaptive Tactical EX Performance stock, Hexmag pistol grip, 15" M-Loc handguard, and a black hardcoat anodized receiver finish.
All gas system lengths are a balance between caliber and barrel length. Omar, This Model has been around since the end of So it is not a real recent model. Many of our pictures are stock photos provided to us by the manufacturer and do not necessarily represent the actual item being purchased.
Aaron, Just a stock photo. Happens quite often. Photos on item description page are sometimes inaccurate. The description is correct for this DB 15 Blackout sporting rifle. Aaron, yes Sir. Buds occasionally uses incorrect stock photos.
Jason, yes Sir it is. The Barrel is "Stamped" 5.An oxymoron can be defined as two terms used together that seem to contradict each other. One could describe an AR pistol as just that: a rifle made into a pistol. The AR pistol is not a new concept, but it seems to be gaining in popularity as the AR has become the ubiquitous rifle in the US.
Diamondback Firearms began shipping the DB15 pistol about two years ago. Fortunately, I was able to obtain one of these handguns to see how well it would run. Why would anyone want a pistol version of the AR? While there are practical aspects to the guns, I thoroughly enjoy AR pistols in a completely recreational capacity. Based on the number of grins I saw when I let others shoot the DB15, I would guess that my feeling is not unique.
As a combat handgun, the AR pistol has some decided advantages when compared to conventional handguns. For self-defense purposes, the AR pistol provides more firepower than many handguns. Even from a short barrel, the. Additionally, the rounds can defeat soft body armor that is increasingly worn by robbing crews. Another benefit is the standard capacity AR magazine is 30 rounds. Throw in the fact that a 55 grain. An AR pistol could be the ultimate hotel room gun.
It is small enough to be carried in an overnight bag, so there are no raised eyebrows when walking through a lobby or parking lot like you might get with a rifle case. Why would you need rifle-like firepower in a hotel room? There have been incidents where travelers have been targeted by gangs. If your hotel room door is kicked in by armed thugs you are not likely to have an avenue of escape.
Having a round pistol like the Diamondback DB15 could mean the difference between a rude awakening and a final sleep. The Diamondback DB15 pistol is chambered for the 5. Like many AR rifles, the pistol uses a direct gas impingement design. Due to the classic design, a commercial-spec buffer tube extends beyond the rear of the receiver.
The end of the tube is covered with a removable foam sleeve. It is possible to obtain a cheek weld on the foam portion of the tube. The 7.
