(GunReports.com) — Diamondback Firearms’ new AR-style DB15 Pistols are based off Diamondback’s A3 Flattop forged-7075-T6-aluminum upper and lower receiver. The DB15 Pistol is available with a 7.5- or a 10.5-inch 4140 chrome-moly melonite-coated barrel with a 1:9 rate of twist.
The new .223/5.56 DB15 pistol has a full-length top-mounting rail that runs from the rear receiver to the end of the handguard. It permits placement of multiple optics, lights, lasers and other accessories for total customization of the firearm.
The DB15 features a Magpul MOE+ pistol grip built from a reinforced polymer body that incorporates a comfortable, wrap-around rubber overmolding for control in unfavorable weather conditions.
The two-stage trigger provides optimum trigger control for precision shooting. The lightweight ventilated aluminum handguard dissipates heat quickly. An abbreviated 5-inch buffer tube creates a more compact pistol, and the Diamondback proprietary flash hider reduces muzzle signature.
The 5-pound DB15 Pistol is offered in black, flat dark earth or OD green with a Cerakote finish. Overall length of the 7.5-inch barrel model is 23.25 inches and 25.75 inches for the 10.5-inch barrel model. It ships with one 30-round PMag where state/local laws allow and a safety lock.
