What about the most popular carry ammo - 380 acp? I have read not to use JHP because of the lack of penetration. Your thoughts please.

Reinsert the guide rod first, then the barrel. Great advice.

Did the reduced trigger spring with the original hammer spring work with no failures? Did it reduce the stiffness of the trigger pull? I am thinking of doing this with my model 94. The trigger is so stiff that my wife can not fire the gun.

As discussed in the video the the 9lb hammer spring had FTF 1 in 3.  Finally fixed the issue week after by installing a washer shim at the bottom end of the retainer bar under the wollff 9lb spring to assure higher compression when trigger is back.  I estimate it is now 10 lbs on the hammer spring---enough to assure harder primer hits.   Bottomline.....the wolf 6.5lb trigger spring and wolf "10" lb hammer spring works.....light enough for wife to pull DA.   As I mentioned this effort was only for my wifes benefit....like most guys finger strength is not an issue.  Good luck

Good review. Like the tip up barrel. My wife can not rack the slide of a pistol.

I recently converted my LC380 to 22 cal. I bought a conversion kit from Twisted Industries. Easy to convert to 22 and back to the original 380. This way I can target practice with 22 LR bullets. 6 cents vs 40 each bullet makes quite a difference. The kit fit perfectly the first time and when shooting, I had no problems. The kit also works on the LC9.

Recently bought a conversion kit for the Ruger LC380/LC9.  It converts the gun to 22LR.  Made by Twisted Industries.  I now can shoot 22LR at 6-8 cents per bullet, vs 40 cents for 380acp.   http://twisted-industries.com/

I just began adding vintage Colts to my collection. This should be added to it at some time. What got me looking at this is an article in NRA about James Bond's guns. His first was a Baby Browning 25, basically a copy of this Colt.

Now we need a video showing the best way to insert ear plugs. Mine keep loosening up as I wear them.

Is that his natural habitat? Does he work there or maybe an owner?

What a shame you are having so much trouble with your new DB380. I had similar probs with mine. Fixed it by using dremmel tool with conical felt tool and red jewelers rouge. I shortened the fee ramp ever so slightly and polished the top of the feed ramp quite a bit. I have put over 500 rounds through it without any malfunctions. It is now my carry gun rather than my Ruger LCP.

On the misfeeds, I used a dremel tool with a conical pad. Put some red jewelers rouge on it and polished the feed ramp till I modified it slightly. I was able to smooth the top of the barrel slightly. I was able to shorten the tip of the feed ramp slightly. These seemed to fix the misfeeds and stovepipes. Did the same for my DB380. It's now my carry gun. With these mods, I have put several hundred rounds through each without a misfeed. Never had a trigger reset problem though, like you had. See my youtube video.

Good review. I have the Diamondback, Ruger and the Glock. My favorite is the Diamondback. Due to many FTFs, I used a dremmel tool with a conical felt tool and red rouge to barely round off the lip of the feed ramp. Since the no jams at all. Runs perfect.

There should be a class three stamp on Dremel tools, they are almost as bad as anti gunners for the health of all firearms. STOP GARAGE GUNSMITHING!!!!!
