Diamondback DB FS Nine
The release of this new full-size, polymer 9mm semi-auto was just announced prior to the NRA annual meetings in Indianapolis and is a new step for Diamondback, which has built its handgun name around more compact models. Billed as “Full-Size Fury,” the glass-fiber reinforced polymer pistol is a double-action, striker-fired model built on a double-stack frame and rounded out with a stainless steel slide. A flared magwell aids in fast, reliable even-under-pressure reloads, while an extended magazine pad aids grip. The handgun utilizes both a trigger safety and firing pin block safety. The magazine holds 15 shots and purchase of the gun includes a free NRA membership. ($483; diamondbackfirearms.com)
