Fair enough.  Thanks.

I agree to end this after I clear one thing up.

What Eric had Maria tell me, he refused to talk to me on the matter when I asked, was: 

"All their barrels looked like that because of their manufacturing process and they had no better ones to replace it with.  Besides, if the gun functions why would I care what the barrel looked like".

The gun did not function either and Maria bought it back.

Thanks Duane.

Here is a link to the old thread.  You are the person reviving this so lets hear what your opinion is. 

I have had two of them.  It cuts velocity by 30 to 40 fps and are a nightmare to clean.  In fact I truly believe that you never get all the crud out.

There is no one I have talked to that says this is normal or acceptable.

Here is a picture of my current barrel.  What is your opinion?

Eric's opinion was that if the gun goes bang, it's not a problem.

All I know is that this pistol is impossible for me to sell without a new barrel.



I clearly did not revive the barrel discussion.  I don't know what I am seeing in that pic.  I already said I don't think I would know the difference, and I wouldn't assess it from a pic anyway.

If Eric told you that "if the gun goes bang, it's not a problem," that is different than the discussion he described to me.  I understand that he and Karl put a lot more analysis into the question than that.  I know they looked at a lot of other barrels from other manufacturers in evaluating yours.  That is exactly the type of characterization of the dispute that I didn't want to let slide.  Maybe your argument devolved to that point when you couldn't reach an agreement, but "too bad so long as the gun shoots" was never been the standard for warranty repair at Rohrbaugh.

This thread has drifted and I should have just let it go, but the one-sided nature of comments and the negativity I see around here sometimes gets my goat.  I really don't want to talk about the barrel situation again.

I agree completely.  I have the Tribute and haven't had any problems at all.  Not to discount those with problems but for mine it has functioned flawlessly out of the box.  I sat on the fence for awhile prior to purchase but I'm still glad it did.

That's pretty accurate IMO. The guns seems to have few gripers on this forum. I would say that 2 of us wouldn't be griping if we weren't caught between a change of hands and needing warranty work. That's pretty good.

As the internet magnifies problems it can also built hype too. There is a bit of hype surrounding the R9. But that all goes back to taking the internet with a grain of salt.

As usual, well put DDGator.

So, hopefully we will hear from Dan and something will be happening with the R9.

So, buy another R9. Personally, I wouldn't carry a pocket pistol with a ported barrel but to each his own. You seem to cherish it enough not to inflict any wear or tear, so it seems you answered your own question.

I posted a question about my dilemma about the Cogan, and everyone wants to talk about gun barrel problems.
