Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: How to Sell a Collection of Rohrbaughs?

If you go the Gunbroker route, it's a good idea to make the auction longer than you would on something like a Glock where you have thousands of auction views in a week. If you make it 10 days to two weeks, you'll get the Rohrbaugh guys who only casually check Gunbroker every few weeks.

I think you may run into market saturation with all ten at the same time.  We don't have a large buying community for this specialized handgun.  Same thing if you go the auction house route.  Too many may drive the price on each to a very low level to get sold.

I would list them on a local (if you have a state focused site) and a national site like Gunbroker and only put one or two up at a time.

Also think about gun-centric forums like this one, The High Road and others that cater to gun owners.

Good luck with your sale.

Nice to see you around Ryan, hope all is well with you.  I'm still taking good care of the Robar...

As far as buying 10 handguns at a time... Federal law does not limit the number of guns a person may buy in any given time period. However, the law does require FFLS to report "multiple sales" of handguns to ATF and other specified law enforcement agencies.  I remember having this convo with my FFL a few years back when I had purchased multiple hand guns in a short amount of time.

Under 18 U.S.C. § 923(g)(3)(A) “Multiple sales” are defined as the sale of two or more handguns by a federally licensed firearms dealer to a non-FFL purchaser within five consecutive business days.

I've run into this when acquiring multiple guns for review.  Essentially the FFL fills out an additional form that gets sent to ATF.  In theory they could pay you a visit and ask to see the guns.  I've never heard of that happening to anyone I know.  It is mostly about making sure you are not buying multiple guns for resale as some type of illegal dealer.

Thank you Eric!

Yes, I did have the CZ grips added to compliment the color of the slide.

I have been blessed to have some great Rohrbaugh pistols. It has not been by accident that I have acquired these pistols. I deeply appreciate attention to detail.

I still have Eric AND Karl’s Robar/Rohrbaugh pistols that are really special. Eric’s pistol has many small parts that were hand sanded and then polished by a jeweler. You just don’t see craftsmanship like that today.

For me, having things that are historically significant and functional is the best!

Nice to hear and Thank You Ammon.

Eric R.

Auction fees can be steep & suppress a realistic sales price. The last time I had a sizable collection of Rohrbaugh's for sale, I posted all of them on this Forum & they all sold pretty quickly to a realistic savvy buyer from this Forum.

You might also considering donating one to the Rohrbaugh Forum museum, located in my garage in Florida.   ;)

I live in the same metro area as Rock Island Auction and know the President Kevin Hogan.

They do an excellent job on Collectible Colts and antiques, not so well on more modern or not widely known guns like Rohrbaughs.   I have never seen a Rohrbaugh on their auction.

Again, 17% seller's fee and 15% buyer's premium, gets the price up their in a hurry.  I have bought quite a few Auto Mags from them and I flip them to people I know or on GunBroker for good profits.

Personally, I would take my chances on GunBroker first.  JMO

Easiest way would be to donate them to my charity for a tax deduction. My charity involves giving disadvantaged members of the community who can't afford an R9 the chance to look at one on my social media page.
