Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / How to Sell a Collection of Rohrbaughs?
« Last post by BlueC2 on April 16, 2021, 01:02:14 PM »
I am considering selling a rather large collection of some of the rarest Rohrbaughs but I don't know what the best way to go about it would be.

1. Break it up and list each on GB? Lots of work and relatively weak market currently.
2. Are there auction houses that sell items like this targeting serious collectors?
3. Is it even possible to buy/sell 10 or so handguns at a time?

Guns in Collection Include:
3x Elite Premium
2x Elites including the first one made with note from Eric.
Karl's personal carry gun. SN R9
No R prefix 117 and 118 R9 and R9s
R1000 engraved
321 no R prefix Silver Frame.

Thank you,
Ryan

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!

AmmonsArms, you seem to have a rare bird on your hands.

Congratulations.

That is coming back to me now. Just before Remington Arms took possession of Rohrbaugh Firearms Corp. on January 14, 2014, we had some prototype items around and we would assemble whatever we could to keep the pistols out there. This particular piece is a one-off R9 utilizing such pieces to make a complete pistol. The Cerakote slide, which I did all of those few Coyote frames and slides in-house, were not many in number. They were actually being used as prototype models and we only did a handful of those due to the extra time it took to “paint” the parts. It also added extra thickness, which then took us more time to hand lap with compounds to mate each part together. Very time-consuming so we discontinued those almost as soon as we offered them. The barrel and extractor finishes were done by Wilson Combat.

I forget which dealer we sent this R9 to, but I remember dealers were taking whatever model we were making at the time. It seemed the finish did not matter as much as simply getting one of those Rohrbaugh R9 Pistols to sell! They were a hot item at that time. We couldn’t make enough of them!

Hmmmm. . . . . . That R9 looks familiar, and definitely one of the last ones I put together. Did you buy that pistol as shown?
Perhaps the VZ Grips were added, but the black frame with the Coyote "Desert Tan" slide has my memory going.
