I had this thread confused with the William's thread.  When I read the other thread, at first I was wondering how he got the gun back from Wilson so fast.

Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: Information please

  Over the years I have carried many Glocks, a small revolver,a1911,and my R9.
And I know I have mentioned this on this forum more than once,as far as I'm concerned none of the guns I've mentioned here are as concealable or as comfortable as the Rohrbaugh.

R9 is definitely my choice for front pocket carry.  I have a 13oz S&W j-frame that just doesn't compare when in the front pocket.

Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: HELP PLEASE - New Owner - Pistol Won't Run

"Sort of a shame as I was wanting to order/buy several spare springs and was going to tell them to throw in the box to avoid shipping charges in the future on springs. "

Williams is great, but their $15-20 minimum shipping is a little steep for a $5 spring.  I wish they had a $2-3 puffy envelope option, but I guess that wouldn't cover the cost of the guy who has to take time to fill the order.

Just received my R9 back from Williams Gun Sights 5 weeks to the day after I shipped it to them.

Regarding the issue, WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER to Forum members thomasconnor (who just happens to be my brother in PA) and backupr9.  These two guys pretty much zero'd in on and correctly diagnosed the problem as being extractor related per the Williams Repair Order.

The Williams Repair Order states:

"Replaced extractor and polished chamber.  Tested OK".

The repair order also has the following statement written on it with a long line then drawn through it crossing it out:

"Emailed Ken about warranty???"

Sort of interesting the way the repair transaction went with Williams:

When talking to them prior to shipment I told them I wasn't the original owner.  As such, they informed me it wouldn't be covered under warranty.  They stated upon diagnosis they'd call with an estimate to repair and to get the go ahead from me.  I never received a call.  Today I received the gun back and a copy of repair order from Williams via UPS Express shipping.  The repair order also stated:

"No charge.  Remington warranty".

I'm thinking I owe "Ken" a nice adult beverage if I ever find out who he is.  I'm guessing he might be a Remington employee who authorized the repair under warranty even though it wasn't under warranty.  They also didn't charge me for the return UPS Express shipping.

I find it interesting that they never contacted me about anything throughout the entire repair ordeal.  Sort of a shame as I was wanting to order/buy several spare springs and was going to tell them to throw in the box to avoid shipping charges in the future on springs.  They never contacted me to confirm receipt of the pistol, never contacted to discuss the issue they found, never called to get authorization to repair, and the best part is they never contacted to collect payment for repairs or shipping.

The commentary provided above is not a complaint, rather a factual summary of the transaction.  I would have preferred some communication but I can live without especially considering they never contacted me to get money!

Now I just need to get out and shoot it to ensure it runs as designed.  I'm pretty certain I'll be good to go.  I'll post how the R9 runs once I can get out to shoot it.

 My gun has only been to the range one time, when I first purchased it. It performed well. I submitted a range report at that time. Winchester Silver Tips 115 gr performed the best.

Thanks for the update on the progression of manufacturing. Your time explaining is much appreciated. Best regards, Fred

Ok. . . . . The slide on your R9 is the early design machined from 17-4 ph stainless steel billets. The barrels are 416 stainless steel. We changed to machining both the slide and the barrels from 416 due to finding that the similar metals wore better than the two different metals, being 416 barrel and a 17-4 slide. We were using the best stainless we could find, however, as we progressed, we found the similar metals of 416 barrel & slide wore better for the longer haul. We also "beefed up" the slide by making the later generation slides slightly fatter. If you intend to carry it a lot and shoot it a little, you should be fine with it. I just wouldn't go putting hundreds of rounds through it like a Glock due to the fact that the R9s of the early generation were actually the smallest ones made and they got some "mid-life fat" added to them as we went along for better durability purposes. Overall, if the gun was keep nice and not shot too much, carry it and enjoy it.

Regards,

I must say that is extremely nice of Steve to offer to work on the Covert for you. That shows pride in what they did with our R9 pistols.

Keep us posted on the outcome please. Thank you!
