    Diamondback Firearms, renowned for its AR rifles, steps into the handgun realm with its latest creation – the Self-Defense Revolver (SDR).

    Unveiled at SHOT Show 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada, the SDR stands out as a compact, double-action revolver chambered in the formidable .357 Magnum, meticulously crafted for reliability and ease of use in self-defense situations.

    The introduction of the SDR marks Diamondback’s expansion into the personal protection handgun sector, showcasing the company’s commitment to innovative firearm design. Boasting a six-round capacity, swing-out cylinder, and chamfered chambers for swift reloading, the SDR epitomizes Diamondback’s dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions for self-defense needs.

    A unique push-button cylinder release, akin to a semi-automatic magazine release, facilitates the opening of the action, while the cylinder and crane assembly is easily removable by pushing another release button.

    Constructed mainly from stainless steel, including the barrel, cylinder, and forged frame, the SDR’s components boast a high-polished finish, contributing to its sleek appearance.

    It houses a 2-inch barrel with a full underlug that shrouds the ejector rod, and its muzzle is enhanced with a 45-degree target crown. Weighing in at 21.2 ounces and possessing an overall length of 6.53 inches, the SDR is contoured for concealed carry.

    In terms of sighting, the SDR departs from the typical poor sighting systems of compact revolvers, offering a front post with an orange fiber-optic insert alongside a rear notch with two green fiber-optic inserts, all set against the frame’s top strap.

    The grips are rubber with a pebble grain texture, compatible with J-frame-type revolvers, and designed to accommodate a J-frame holster.

    This release coincides with a growing interest in versatile and reliable revolvers highlighted at this year’s SHOT Show, where a multitude of new revolver models were unveiled.

    Despite the prominence of semi-automatic pistols, the revolver segment displayed strong offerings from various manufacturers.

    Beretta USA collaborated with Manurhin to import the double-action .357 Mag. model MR73, celebrating its 50th anniversary with a limited edition.

    The MR73, rooted in military and special service police units, commands attention with its hefty price tag starting at $10,999 for the anniversary edition.

    Chiappa Firearms continues to expand its Rhino series with the Rhino 60DS Stormhunter, and Colt Manufacturing satisfies classic revolver enthusiasts with the reintroduction of the blued Python double-action revolver.

    Both established and novel companies alike are catering to diverse consumer preferences, reflecting a broad interest in both heritage designs and modern innovations within the revolver market.

    The SDR, with its user-friendly design and robust build, is positioned at a competitive price point of $777, potentially appealing to the self-defense market that values the time-tested reliability of revolvers coupled with modern enhancements.
