R9 Elite Premium Model Specifications Note
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:31:53 PM »
Well, it's the dead of winter and I thought I'd post something fresh tonight.

I found this the other day in some files. It is the actual hand written list of what we did to each of the sixteen R9 Elite Premium Pistols that were manufactured with great care at the Rohrbaugh facility in Deer Park, New York.

Serialized as:  1 of 16, 2 of 16, etc. all the way up to 16 of 16 . . . . . . These limited production run handguns were sent out with custom made hardwood presentation display cases.

The attached note on our memo pads was written by me so we had the details of these special hand made R9s on paper.

Enjoy viewing below a piece of Rohrbaugh Firearms History!

Regards,

Eric C. Rohrbaugh

Maybe Duane will post a picture of his.  I have seen a picture somewhere but I could not find it using search.

I may have some photographs external and even internally of the Premium. I have to really look around all of my photograph logs, of which I have about 9,000 plus photos to go through. Yep, that will take some time, but I know I have those "somewhere".

Ref. the cold. I live in New York State out on Long Island. We have been in bitter cold for weeks now. Daytime highs around the upper teens with single digits on the overnight. Blizzard Grayson just came through here and now everything is a frozen mess. We just got out to the stores after being inside for two days. Overnight wind chills have reached around minus 25-30 degrees one evening and pretty much around 10 below zero is common right now. They threaten to get back into the normal mid-30s during the day this coming week. Thank God for that! This bitter cold is taking it's toll here.

I am glad you folks enjoyed the little piece of paper from my shop pad with that interesting information written on it. That was about ten years ago or so!
Wow . . . . . Time flies.

Stay safe out there!

Thought I would touch base here about those photographs of the R9 Elite Premium. I am sorry to say, I just spent an hour going through my old files on the computer looking for them, and I'll be "dawg gonned" if I can't find them anywhere! I am quite upset because I know I did not delete those, but they are in there somewhere. I file my photos by dates, not what they are, which I have come to find out that is not how you file things. With almost ten thousand photographs within the computer, this is going to take a while . . . . . but I will locate them! 

Happy New Year everyone. . . . . . and stay safe out there.
