Innards of my R9s
« on: August 11, 2004, 01:35:03 AM »
I thought everyone might enjoy some pics of a R9s disassembled for cleaning.  Everything comes apart without special tools.

Very nice!
My R9S is a very close brother to yours....only 2 down the line.

Do you take requests?  How a pic of the slide assembly to round things out.  :)

Very nice pictures.  It also shows a gun with a very simple, well-thought-out design.

Great pics Justin .. but!  I cannot get the entire pics.

I am still - well for now - on dial-up and when the page burden reached about 1.8Mb !! ... it gave up and all I got was partial pics!  Pity - I'd like to see entire images!

I always make this request .... which is ... anyone posting pics, try and reduce them to maybe 700 to 800 pixels max dimension, and compress to get them down to somewhere between 50k and 100k max.  Of course some qual lost but usually not enough to be a prob'.

My pics are generally about 60k region and ... I think (and hope) usually show up OK, as well as download at a reasonable rate.  Any chance you could shrink these a bit and overwrite the originals with smaller ones?

Hey shelb,

On the dust cover portion of the frame below and in front of the serial number, is yours more rounded off on the serial number side than the other side?

Not sure......I'll check when I get it back.  Mine is at the Rohrbaugh factory for repairs.

Chris:
justin2992 posted these excellent photos of "the innards" of his gray framed R9S.  Any chance of you posting some similar photos of your silver framed R9S?

Good idea Mike - yeah - I'll take a series.

Mind you (moan, grumble! :D ) ... they'll be a tad smaller!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To add - Apart from Justin's first pic I only have the top quarter of the others .. then it all went belly up!!  I think tho I know what they showed.
