Something that good looking needs to be brought out into the open:

Probably should have posted in "Range report section", oh well!

I took my stippled and NP3+ R9s along with a sig P232 to the range today.  I started of with the sig, 50 rounds of federal eagle, 25 rounds of independence blue box, and 25 rounds of Blazer.  All good with no problems!  

I figured I'd start with the sig cause it would probably be better off starting off with the 380 and then the 9mm R9.  After all I haven't been to the range in a while.

The pup functioned flawlessly with 1 Box of speer gold dots 115gr, and 1 Box of speer gold dots 124gr.

There was defiantly  some flip, but was what was expected from a loaded 14-15 oz pocket pistol!  

This this is awesome,  Im now considering getting rid of the sig.  Smaller 9mm vs 380?  No brainer for me.  Don't get me wrong the P232 is a fantastic pistol, never one hiccup.  However is defiantly out classed as a concealable self defense pistol, not to mention caliber!

I think im gonna get myself another H&k!  Gotta love German engineering"!!! Best cars, Best tools, Best guns, etc......

If Im not mistaken, "Karl Rohrbaugh" is German too right?

;D ;D ;D

Great range results.  You've got to be proud.  The plan came together with a grand finale, so to speak.  Excellent!    :)

Sure did, I couldn't be happier!  

Im a-little confused with the spring....
After looking at http://acbsystems.net/boards/rohrbaugh/basefile/faq-index.htm, it says "the mainspring MUST have the formed end against the collar, and the unfinished end within the end cup".  Is that because that tutorial was done before Karl implemented the new springs?

I don't see any difference between the ends!?1?
After 40 rounds of speer Gold Dots the spring is about 1/4 inch shorter.

The ends on the new spring don't have any variance either.

Any input whould be helpfull, thanks! ::)

Yes, the current springs are different from those in the tutorial and you do not have to be concerned about it. They are the same on both ends.

This makes it much easier.  No guess work.

cordy,
 †Those are the original Rohrbaugh Carbon Fiber grips. These are mine.
You can only get them from someone who has taken them off an older model, they also come in blue and will set you back about $300.

Had another range session today.  I just came back from my local PD where my cousin is a Officer, and used their range.  

We put 50 rounds of American Eagle 115gr threw the pup as well as 20 rounds of Gold dots(10 -115gr & 10 -124gr).

Also put 150 rounds threw the p232 & 150 threw his duty p229.

Good day for sure!

  ;D
