Robar Rohrbaugh score!
« on: February 21, 2024, 01:16:41 PM »
99% sure I just scored a factory Robar R9 off gunbroker.  It was not listed as such but does have all the right stuff polished and ontop of that it's a consecutive serial # to the NIB factory Robar Rohrbaugh I already own.  It's a good day!  I guess when I have it in hand ill know for sure or not.

It came in today and it's 100% a Robar Rohrbaugh and not only that it shows no signs of use at all.  Looks unfired!!  Cool to have twins now.  I did put blue VZ grips on my first one and will keep a eye out for another set for the new guy.

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

Thanks guys.  I put a set of VZs on it today.  I've never really liked the color UNTIL I put then on this Robar.  I love it!

You lucky bugger!
I had my G.B. Saved Search as Robar Rohrbaugh, so I never saw it.
Congratulations!

That is a rare find ten years out from the sale to Remington.

Those limited-run R9s are getting tougher to find in the field for sale now! 

Sweet Twins you have there Corey!   

Congratulations!
