How About Some Tools!
« on: July 22, 2009, 08:36:58 PM »
How can Rohrbaugh make such a fine weapon and then let you figure out how to take it apart and put it back together without some furnished tools. Before I baught my R380S I read it was so easy to assemble and breakdown that anyone could do it. You bet. It seems most of you have found a way to do this as I have but it sure would have been nice had they included some tools to do the job. Am I missing something here? Do you think they will do something about this in the future?

Never be so open minded your brains fall out!

Well the fact that there have been a few thousand sold in the last five years leads me to believe the answer is no.

Choppers ,

I am with you- it would only make sense that Rohrbaugh includes and/or offered some approved tools.

I carry my R9S everyday and really don't want to spend a lot of time learning the "cleaning curve" Life is already so busy. With that said, if your spending this type of money for a pistol.. you would think it would be easier to maintain and include the proper tools.

Ok-I realize I am a newbie to Rohrbaugh's and I know this gun is very special and not for everyone. Trust me.. I did my research and heard all of the cleaning stories etc. So I knew what I was getting into.. I just wish it was a bit easier to breakdown.

I may even look for a gunsmith in Atlanta that is truly familiar with the R9S and simply pay someone to clean and lube the gun.

The bottom line- the gun is incredible quality,has a learning curve,but needless to say its the Rolls Royce of guns.

As Tom said elsewhere ... describing in detail how to make inexpensive disassembly aids ... q-tip (cut off) & fuse pulling pliers mod ... I use the q-tip and hands to position the slide for takedown and then a modeling clamp for the spring. †Until you get the knack of the slide position, try a wooden or plastic clothes pin or scrap wood. †Another two cents ...
