RECLUSE Prototype!
« on: March 09, 2010, 10:27:16 PM »
The little pup is in my pocket, in a Recluse holster!  :)

The leather is easy- Same as the Kahr .380.  Fits well.  This trigger block works, but will be modified slightly for our next one.  While it's functioning properly, it's not quite what it should be.

The next one will be ready to try in another day or two.  In the meantime, I'm definately using this one, as it's better than any other way to carry the Rohrbaugh!

More to come....

Looking forward to it.  Thanks for the update.

Okay, since I can't get the pictures to load, I guess I don't have a prototype. ;)  I also don't have a left-hand version, either. ;) ;)

And I probably won't have the Square pocket version this week, either (unless I can get the pictures >:().

We're going to try a different trigger block that will hold a bit more snug.  The current one works fine, but a bit more grip may be nice.

We're getting close....

I should have the updated prototypes to try out in another day or two.

The first ones were really close- I'm using them daily.  

I think we may have it this time!

Still here, guys!

I've got a few prototype holsters that I've been using daily.
The leather is easy, but here's the story on the trigger blocks-  We make our own trigger blocks for trying things out, and when we are satisfied, it takes quite a bit of cash to set up our supplier for mass-production.

Being that the Rohrbaugh is such a small market, we would probably never come close to breaking even if we spend a large sum to set up production.

Because of this, we are expanding what we can produce in-house.  So far, we have had some consistancy problems, and I've sent quite a few trigger blocks into the "Reject" box.

Even when they function fine, they must also look like a quality product before we accept any money for it.  

The Rohrbaugh brothers saw the Recluse holster while at the SHOT Show last January, and were pretty impressed.  Karl Rohrbaugh is waiting for me to send a holster his way.  Until we are able to consistantly produce a holster that we would be proud to show the Rohrbaughs, we won't make them available.  

We're getting really close.  Very close.  The Recluse for the Rohrbaughs will be available as soon as the Rohrbaugh brothers approve of it.

Easy, Gene!  You'll need those eyes to view your new Rohrbaugh.    ;D
