Title: Grip extensions on magazine?
Post by: FireBreather01 on November 16, 2004, 02:13:29 AM
Has anyone tried to make or fit another grip extension to the R9 magazine? I don't have mine yet but as soon as I get it I will look at the magazine to see if one can be fitted to it. I know this may somewhat defeat the entire concept of 'small' but I am a tinkerer and wonder if this could work and I don't think a mag extension would bulk up the gun at all. Now don't flame me for not having an R9 yet - I'm just curious!!! (should be here soon)

As you follow up with this project you will find the Mag catch/release will pose a problem. But if you want to try, start with a base made for a Kahr, or a Colt Pocket Nine.

Thank for the 'heads-up'. I'll keep everyone informed as it takes shape.

Look under accessories.  There is the answer.  I had asked the same question.

If Rohrbaugh could/would come up with the extension
it would make a huge difference in gripability and
controllability--even for us with smaller hands

Tom, it is in the mix, I have a sample of this from the SHOT SHOW. It is coming one day.

Thanks, Tom. I hope it is sooner rather than later. It is
remotely possible that a few of the failures could be
prevented with a better grip environment.

If someone who has one and wants to lend it to me I have someone who could probably make some extensions, but wants to see one. If you have one to lend let me know by PM
or E-mail.

It appears time flew too fast on this request..  I have not seen any of these on the market or on the company website..  I wonder if it's a dead issue..  I guess it might defeat the whole purpose of the R9 Pocket size..

aren't there any moderators on this site, like most others?

Maybe i should post some four letter cuss words to see if anyone is monitoring the posts.

DDGator (Duane) is the moderator (administrator) and has that power.  He's very busy, a lawyer, and writes for gun magazines.  Here's a recent thread on the Forum.

Those words are automatically taken care of with the censor software on the forum.  ;D

Actually, I am on the road right now.  I did get the tip off on the spammer and cancelled the account pretty quick--because of a tip off from a long time member.  I didn't have the ability to track down the couple of post and remove them.  But, you will see that the member is gone.

If you ever see spammers, drop me a note and let me know and they are dealt with expeditiously.

Thanks.

no sweat Duane ;D

the guy was silly more than anything else. nothing to worry about. i can't speak for others but i was just adding my 2 cents for the fun of it because of how absolutely nutty that post of his was.  

heck, i get much more offensive spam via email every day ::)

OK Guys hang on tight because here it comes.  This no grip extension thing has really pissed me off. On a  thought I decided to try as many as I could get my hands on.  bang second try. my wifes Kahr k9 pearce grip extension fits like a glove. Yes I said it. it fits perfect. I had to put a little extra bend on the rohrbaugh base tab, but it fits great.  I win, I am the man!!!!!  same grip extension is used on the K9/MK9/K40.  You are all welcome !!!  Oh yea, one small detail. I have not tried it in the gun yet.  I must have overlooked that point. I am figuring that the mag latch will require some tweeking of the base plate . but in a world of no mag extensions I am feeling positive...

I would say thank you but it appears you have already congratulated yourself.

I used the PM9/Colt Pocket Nine Pearce extensions and they worked fine.

I just did not rust a plastic extension with a heel mag catch.
