Eric, could you refresh my memory as to what was modified when the USA was added to the slide and what was done when U.S.A. was added?  Phil

The Water Cooler -- General Discussions / Re: #119 (no R) on GB

This discussion could actually go on for a while, and would be best if we could get together, hang out and have a nice conversation. Unfortunately, we all live too far apart for that to work, so I'll keep it simple here.

The early no-prefix R9s can be used, but at this point would be better suited for a collector as only roughly 48 were made of those. The reason being as we went along, we were constantly upgrading these pistols. For carry, I would look for something around the R4500 serial numbers up until the last ones we made in the R6000 area for carry as those have all of the upgrades done to them. Others in the R101 to R4500 are also a good choice, but have fewer upgrades than the latter. The none-prefix jobs are more collectable, mostly due to those being the very first ones made and the few numbers produced.

I hope this explanation helps.

What are your opinions as to purchasing earlier versions such as this one, versus later iterations of the R9 for carry purposes, as far as durability, reliability, and overall function?

I would like to have one of these with the blue carbon fiber grips, and this one looks pristine, but is it inferior in any ways to later models?

I hear you Mike and I agree with your sentiments. Hopefully, I have helped some of the members here with any issues they come upon with their pistols. I do what I can. I understand that that is appreciated here and I am really humbled by that. Sometimes I wish I could do more.

Thanks Eric, glad you are able to do things today you were not able to back in the day.

I would not lose sleep over the past, just think about the increase in knowledge you have added to the firearms community since those days.

The auction seems to have a number of bidders and is creeping up a bit.  Still a good price IMHO.

I also see that another low numbered gun is being offered, R250 is up for sale.

Lots of ads for the little gun up, got 9 on Gunbroker right now.

Back on track now guys! . . . .  ;D . . . . This 119 is rare indeed! Again, a little more than just 48 R9 Pistols were serialized this way, which is how many frames were in one tray at the shop when they came off of the C.N.C. machines. The revised frames had the "R" prefix to the serial numbers.   ;)

Thanks Tracker. . . . . and I felt upset back then, and now, for not being there for "my" customers. Sadly, some left because of it.
