I remember S&W being sued by Glock because of perceived patent infringements in the production of the early Sigmas. I was playing with a Diamondback DB380 and it's got significantly more similarities with a Glock than the Sigmas ever had. The DB380 is a micro Glock!

Does anyone know if these are being produced in conjunction with Glock? Is Diamondback really Glock USA?

No ties to Glock.Just a rip off of design.
I went through a lot of crap with mine
and eventually got rid of it.
Run a search on the Diamondback.

I've had a lot of FTFs and FTEs with mine. I sent it back and am waiting to try it out after their "fix". Supposedly there are some ex-Kel-tec guys working for the company (they are right down the street from each other). I like the idea of the gun, but it needs to go "boom" when I pull the trigger. They also make a 9mm.

I can't believe that Glock hasn't sued them yet.

Sent mine back 3 times.After the third return, they
sent me a new one.Which I traded for a Ruger LCP.
The trigger transfer bar,which is a direct Glock rip off,is very fragile.
Broke twice.Trigger itself broke once.
I wrote these guys a letter telling them its a good thing they
dont make SCUBA gear as they'd be killing people.
I dont thnk they liked it.

I was at my range a couple weeks ago and 2 ladies were shooting one and they were having all kinds of problems! They couldn't empty a mag without multible malfunctions.

It also seems to be real sensitive about your grip.
Not even the "locked wrist issue" common to Glocks.
If your grip isnt just right,it'll jam.
When you consider the circumstances this pistol was
designed for,being "grip sensitive" is unacceptable.
