Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: What do you guys think this is?
« Last post by MRC on August 29, 2016, 08:49:50 AM »
Here is the receipt from Arego's the seller sent me.  It is hard to see but it lists the gun as a R9s.  I told him that I did not believe it was a 'real SF' but he listed it as such anyway.

When Remington purchased Rohrbaugh, those cardboard boxes were shipped to them on pallets, however, the program in Microsoft Office on my personal computer that I did those little tags on did not go with them. Simple to replicate once you get those custom sized cardboard boxes though.  ;-)

Other Guns / Re: Remington R51 Reintroduced
« Last post by ECR on August 29, 2016, 08:40:29 AM »
I see they made the grip safety lever on the back strap much shorter this time, and be it known. . . . I am not a fan of them! When I was working with Remington's R&D Dept. for a short time after their purchase of Rohrbaugh, that was much longer and did not engage until the lever was BELOW the frame! Not good. . . . I couldn't get it to disengage and the fellow showing it to me like a proud "PaPa" was one of the lead guys in the department! Whoops..... Anyway, I still liked it. That one was really just built and placed in my hands untested. I am happy they reintroduced it and I too hold an interest in the look of it. I feel it could be refined further to smooth things out, such as the slide / barrel ejection area. . . . but what do I know. At this price point, it is a neat firearm for the money in my estimation. Let's hope they "Did it right" this time!  LOL

Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: What do you guys think this is?

Coverts were standard R9 production guns which Agrego's Gun & Pawn sent to Bill Wilson to be converted to their "COVERT" model. The deep "COVERT" engraving on the slide was done by Wilson, not by Rohrbaugh. That was never a Rohrbaugh model, the covert, although we ended up servicing them anyway to do the right thing. Looking at this "SF" in question here. . . . . I would NEVER HAVE let that go out like that with a silver recoil system! NEVER. . . . So, buyer beware on this R9 "Special Forces" model being sold. Also, the end cap for the outer recoil spring on a real SF was also black. Now in fairness, many folks would order replacement recoil systems for their R9 pistols, however, Maria would always ask if it was silver or a black unit. . . . I built a few all black units for sale as replacements, but literally only about 5 or 6 of those went out the door. Still ~ Buyer beware on this one. Just saying............

About a year ago, there was a guy selling R9 cases on GunBroker. He had alot of them. You may want to try an advanced search or google it. Good luck!
