Are Diamondback firearms still popular?

Postby Flowmaster » Mon Apr 16, 2018 6:44 pm

I haven't seen a Diamondback pistol (new or used) in ages. Are they still popular where you are? They seem to have been eclipsed by the LCP and SCCY pistols, both priced around or a little above $200.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, carries them here. A pawn shop chain carried them for awhile and had so many problems that they clearanced them all out with no returns or guarantees.

I saw the Diamondback 9mm pistols maybe 2 years ago for super cheap, like $200 brand new. That was only for a limited time though. I assume some distributor dropped the price and dumped a bunch of them on the market. Now I'm feeling like I should have bought one as a kind of strange oddity to add to my pocket pistol collection. I'm still looking for an I.O. Hellcat pistol if I ever see one in person, as well as an Autauga/MPA Protector 380.

Nothing here. Haven't even had anyone ask, either.

I'll write you into my will. Might take 30 years or so for you to get them though.

Not here in the Pacific NW either. They seemed interesting on announcement, and then crickets.
