Just read a pretty good review on this newer model.
Seems like a good addition to pocket carry for those like me that do carry that way.
Looking at some LGS to see one without any luck.
Anyone seen or handled one yet?

A buddy of mine has an earlier gen and absolutely loves it. I've heard it was luck of the draw, whether you got a good one or bad one but he must've gotten a good one, claims he's shot over 1,000 rounds through it with no issues. I haven't shot it but I like the way it feels and if the odds have improved, I'd consider one for sure.

Welcome to the DB Forum! https://diamondbackforum.com You can go to that forum and find out from them as a research tool. Others do the same. Do that myself when looking for info of any kind. I check out as many sources as possible for feedback from the actual owners. Trolls are not relevant in these kinds of things.
You are right. Hope you find a gun store/range that has them.

I own a gen 2 model db9......Could not feed a magazine without stove pipes.....after 250 rounds the trigger failed to reset......sent it in....they kept it 4 months before returning...They fixed the trigger but the thing still could not make it through a mag without stove piping.......In frustration i went online and followed the suggestion to use cut down keltec springs. This fixed my problem! Size wise they are great to carry... However, i never quite trusted the gun and now carry a Ruger lc9. I have heard the new gen 4 is better, but if you follow their forums which i do, its still a crap shoot but the odds have improved. if you are comfortable working on the guns to make them work you should go for it.

After reading several reviews on the Diamondback forum, I have decided to wait and decide until I can actually examine and hold one.
Thanks all for the input.
