The price is fairly steep; but all in what you want.

If you buy a factory all black Rohrbaugh, it does not feature frame checkering.

AP&W does an awesome job on frame checkering. It helps with my grip and shot. I can pick the finish of my choice after it has been checkered. It's just my opinion.

AP&W - checkering front & back strap (40LPI). Chrome plating the entire pistol and two magazines. This was on a R9

I think i paid in the area of $530.00 with return shipping.

Traction grips Universal set that I custom cut to cover front strap, back strap, and mag extension hook.  $4.99 and I still have 3/4 of the kit left over for other projects.  AND it's BLACK.  http://www.tractiongrips.com/catalog/c6_p1.html

That's really not a bad price!

I forgot to say, this one is ported as well. I think the porting was about $100.00.

I don't have an opinion yet. I have not shot it since it was ported.

AP&W highly recommends it.

I just like the way the R9 shoots now, without the porting.

I don't have any complaints.

I need to get to the range with all the R9s.

I cannot wait to shoot the Farmie!
