See if Williams still has parts:

With regard to warranty service on existing Rohrbaugh pistols:


Frist, he apologized for the delay in getting the warranty service up and going.  He said that he worked hard to find the right place to outsource the repairs.  Remington did not want an "armorer" level service to swap parts--they wanted a true gunsmithing operation.  Williams was interested, but wanted to do some homework on the gun before agreeing to take on the responsibility.  Ultimately, they accepted, of course.  He felt like his main job was to get a quality system in place, not to rush the process.

Dan assures me that Williams has a large supply of parts.  He described it as four pallets of parts.  He is confident that they will be able to fully service warrantied pistols for "years" to come.  He also stated that the guns run very well, and he doesn't expect an onslaught of claims.   He did not say, but he implied, that by the time the parts run out, Remington will be making new versions of the R9. 

I think this is the best assurances we can hope for at this point.  He seemed genuinely concerned that Rohrbaugh customers would be supported and pleased with Remington.

Is Williams still providing Rohrbaugh warranty service now that Remington declared bankruptcy?

I just spoke with Williams Gunsight in Michigan at 800 530-9028. The gunsmith extension is 235, but Alex who previously did the Rohrbaugh warranty work is no longer with the company. The person I spoke to said that they are no longer doing warranty work but would do repairs and sell parts if they are available for the Rohrbaugh.

Hoserack—-I don’t have any extra stainless grip screws but I do have extra black ones from some I bought from another member a few years ago.  They are identical to the original ones except they're black

Be glad to send a few to you at no charge if you’d like—-just PM me the address where you’d like them sent.

I live about 45 minutes from William's. I wonder what they would charge for a complete "parts kit" for an R9 if I walked in. They sold me a silver, gray, and black set of factory R9 aluminum grips that I love. If I make a trip over there, I would take orders for parts. I would only charge USPS rate for shipping.

I got grip screws from William's for a few dollars, only problem was the $20 shipping and handling.

Wow, that's great news, and very reassuring.

Repeat: Williams is not performing Rohrbaugh warranty work.

But they are still performing repairs for a fee?

That was the message given to me but you may want to verify with someone in charge there.

Wow!
I wasn't expecting so many replies.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll call to see if they have the stainless screws.
I love my R9, I've been carrying it for years.
