Update on R45 Status
« on: November 16, 2011, 03:22:40 PM »
Hey guys -- The SHOT Show is just around the corner, and it won't be long before all the speculation starts.  Many of you will recall my reporting, after SHOT 2011, that I had actually held an R45 prototype, and that production was scheduled to commence by January 2012.

Unfortunately, the factory has not been able to hold to that schedule.  A number of manufacturing and production issues have conspired to push the project back a bit. Interestingly, none of the issues relate to the design of the firearm itself, which is largely worked out.  However, there is a huge commitment of time and resources required to mass produce an entirely new firearm. They are working on these issues as we speak.

I can assure you that Karl and Eric and the entire Rohrbaugh crew remain committed to the R45, and it will happen -- but the exact timeframe is unclear at this point.  Of course, I will keep the forum informed of the progress of the R45, and you will hear any updates here first!

I know a number of you will be disappointed in the delay -- and I feel your pain.  But, I assure you that Rohrbaugh is just as eager to make the R45 as we are to buy one.  

And...I hear there will be a new Rohrbaugh R9 model on display at SHOT to help pass the time while you wait.   ;)

Give us a few hints, Duane, on the new model R9!    :)

Now, you know that is not going to happen KJ...   ;)

I should start threat in the R-9 forum so we don't hijack this thread.
