Diamond Back DB9RB question

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

I started shooting PCC this year and love it.  I have purchased a new DB9 RB AR rifle and it works great.  Dropped in a new Timney Trigger and it runs like a champ.  This weekend was a PCC points match and I have figured out that I cannot reload quickly do to the small Mag well.  Does anybody know if there is a enlarged Magazine well for the Diamond Back PCC?   Thanks for your help.

I haven't  found one yet. I have 3 Diamondbacks and they are great guns. Make sure you limit the bolt travel with some type of spacer or you will break the bolt stop.

I had been working with BMILLER here to get one made for the GUN. I had sent him precise measurements and pics and he was just not able to get one done or it appears to have the time to work on developing a magwell for such a SMALL MINORITY (me alone till you popped up here!) to make it worth his while to go to all the work in R&D for a one off.

I love my Diamondback. I have yet to find a magwell that even looks close to fitting the gun.

 

I will say this, IF you practice enough doing reloads you DON'T need a magwell. I have had 2 of the GM PCC shooters here in the ATL say that I do the fastest reload they have seen for a gun WITHOUT a magwell.

Titan Rockets said he would do it if he had good measurements.

do you have contact information for them? I think I still have all the pics with the caliper measurements in my phone I can send to them.

Go to titanrocket.com and send a message from there. I don't have the email anymore. Contact was sometimes slow and spotty but I think if you have the info we could all benefit.

Bill and M.  Thanks very much for the information.  if you end up getting the Mag well built or quoted, let  me know the price.  I would probably add on to your order.  but since this is a one off, we are probably talking CNC.  BTW.. Bill, can you provide more information on the bolt limiter you are talking about?  I notice this slams pretty hard back and one of my buddies said to change to an AR 308 spring to lessen the impact. 

 

Thanks.

I put a Spikes Tactical buffer in mine which is a bit longer and heavier.  You can also just stack quarters in the tube until it will travel just far enough to lock back . Someone sells a delrin or some type of synthetic spacer for like $3 dollars but I can't  remember who. Someone will probably  join in with that info. The quarters will work till you do something else. The 308 spring seems to make it work a bit nicer but still needs to be limited.
