Ok,........

I said that as a joke because Arne runs Boberg Arms. He is clearly a skilled engineer but makes a competing product so it is unlikely he will be making any improvements to the R9.

Ok,........an engineer can figure that out.
I'm not an engineer. I'm an A&P tech and a Weldor.

No spring changes for me.

Been out of school a while I see,.....

A 'weldor' is the person that makes the weld.
A 'welder' is the machine or equipment that the 'weldor' uses to make the weld.

And actually " Welder" can be used both ways ; also as the person who welds, if you look it it up.

At the time of my "joke", I was in a Blonde moment. 

My apologies to you and your profession.  :)

Uh,....you may care to "look it up"
I've been a WELDOR using a WELDER for the last 29 years.
Learned the proper uses of both words a looooooooong time ago.

Personally, I had rather be a weldor than a weldee.

So I reckon being a "Weldor"  means you have a great command of the English language as well.

If you don't want to accept my apology, I can do nothing more.

While dictionaries are histories of past usage I have no idea how the word was spelled 29 years ago. There is, however, another factor called common usage. Any classified ad run today for welders is very consistent in the spelling, viz.,"Welders wanted"; "Arc Welders needed"; "Hiring Rig Welders."

Sometimes, things change.

From Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition.

Welder : n (ca. 1828) : One that welds: as a or wel-dor : one whose work is welding b : a machine used in welding

I guess the Bros Rohrbaugh do not rate this spring with the same importance they do the mainspring. ... ::) ::)

Leeyn:

I just noticed your post. To what spring do you refer -- the assembly's captive inner spring or its outer main spring?  In any event the R9's outer (main) spring is performing some seriously heavy work during recoil. After all, this is a 13-oz pistol chambered for the 9mm Parabellum cartridge. You don't have the intertia of a 1911, for example, to help control recoil forces.

Since one can purchase a mainspring for the R9 for less than some places charge for a cup of coffee, why not just buy them by the dozen and change them out every 200 rounds or so? Believe me, there is nothing about an R9 that the Brothers Rohrbaugh do not take seriously since the pistols bear not only their name but also their family crest.

Finally, if I have not previously welcomed you to the Forum, permit me now to do so.
