Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

Nice package, but beyond my price range for sure!

Did the Robar get any special attention/fitting/etc?  Or are they just the standard Rohrbaugh with the coating applied?  I'm very interested in that one, in particular because I've heard that the Robar treatment increases hardness and wear resistance.

I really like the mirror polish on the Rohrbaugh Robar trigger, mag release, grip screws, and hammer.  Phil

Extremely nice find and purchased Robar/Rohrbaugh ccoorreeyy.  Every part of those pistols were hand-picked by me. I also did the assembly, test firing, and boxing. They were very special-built Rohrbaugh R9 Series sidearms. A true investment piece for the Rohrbaugh collector and aficionado. Enjoy it.
