Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: I want to love my Rohrbaugh... BUT
« Last post by JoshA on Today at 04:44:53 PM »
Not a bad idea.

Are there any recommended smiths out there that anyone would trust their R9 to? I would like to chat with someone who is knowledgable about my particular issue and perhaps send it to them for repair.

That's the piece Bob. The 2 mm x 2 mm to the left of the hammer. I looked to see if there is a visible pin that could be replaced easy enough, but could not see one. No sign of a screw either.

Perhaps someone out there can inform if they know how to cure a 2 mm x 2 mm thing to the left of the hammer that's loose.

Any info fellas?

I think we should start looking for an R9 gunsmith that can service these!  Are there any employees that have worked at the factory or independent gunsmiths with experience.

I'am more of a MakersMark man, but I do like Scotch every so often. I do like british cars, I own a 1974 Lotus Europa Twin Cam and a 1995 Lotus Esprit S4s. When I am out and about I always have my Rohrbaugh 9S with me. Stay Fast and Stay Armed. :)

I've got a Lotus Elise.  Lots of fun in a little package and a blast on the track or a windy road.  I can't stop tinkering with it though.  There is always another upgrade and something to make it a pound lighter.  I think i'm sub 1800 pounds now with the new exhaust.  I've owned a lot of sports cars and this is in a different class. 

I always wanted an Esprit V8.

Take the slide off and turn it upside down. Look where the lugs on the barrel lock up with the slide lugs.  Look for good uniformly round edges that are not starting to wear unevenly.

I have not had mine off for awhile, so I can't be more specific.


Mine has peening, not bad but I only have maybe 100 rounds through it.

I called factory , they said its normal....really !

Well put 150 flawless Winchester T 147 grain through the solo today that takes us over the 1000 round mark and time to replace the spring.

So far the only problems I see with the little machine are a slightly loose right ambi safety switch and the black wearing off where the mag goes in. Other than that it's in great shape. Tight and very dependable.

Of all of the 124 and 147 ammo ran through it I had ZERO malfunctions!

If you aren't impressed with that for a little pistol I can only surmise you haven't shot many little pistols. They always have some hick up it seems. The micros that is.

Well I'm real happy with this Solo and plan to make it my EDC while it's hot here in Indianapolis.

I will be mostly carrying it IWB under an untucked polo and occasionally in the pocket. It's a bit large for that to me though. Not terrible, but it just rides more comfortable and concealed IWB IMO.

Well I'll clean it and change the spring and post a pic or two for anyone who cares.

I'll report on how it functions with the new spring and go from there.

So I failed to realize that the cartidge length makes a significant difference in the reliable cycling for the R9.

Gold Dots are obviously good. How are the HST's working? As reliable or better than Gold Dots?

Any word on Golden Sabre? I've been impressed with that round's performance everywhere I look.

What broke on yours? That little piece to the left of the hammer about 2mm x 2mm? Maybe you just need a new pin or screw.  I don't have mine handy to inspect.

I ran 57 rounds through the little Kahr today.

Grrrr. Thought it was a sewing machine until today. Didn't like the federal range ammo. Had about 5 failure to ejects out of 50 rounds.

I'll switch ammo up and try again.

It ran the hydra shocks just fine (7)

Richard,
I always loved the TR2 and 3, but rode only with friends.  I never drove a Sunbeam, but had a friend who loved his Tiger.  I drove a big Healey ('67 3000) through Europe when stationed there and wish I had it still.  Then went to a Jag 150S roadster for a while (now a show car owned by a friend) and then to E-types...wish I had kept them all.  Ahh, the memories of youth do sustain us on rainy dark days.  Our best to Joyce in her recovery.

Duane, nice catch.  Had a 2002 BMW also when in Germany...4 cylinders but cruised at 100+ mph on the autobahn and was extremely stable at those speeds.  German cars are generally too complicated for my aged psyche now, altho I do value my everyday drive, an older Porsche Boxter.


Verdugoman, envy you your "Loti", noisy, small, quick, fast and mean little buggers...more fun to drive than almost anything and just the right size for an R9.  Keep the shiny side up!
