Grip extensions on magazine?
« on: November 16, 2004, 02:13:29 AM »
Has anyone tried to make or fit another grip extension to the R9 magazine? I don't have mine yet but as soon as I get it I will look at the magazine to see if one can be fitted to it. I know this may somewhat defeat the entire concept of 'small' but I am a tinkerer and wonder if this could work and I don't think a mag extension would bulk up the gun at all. Now don't flame me for not having an R9 yet - I'm just curious!!! (should be here soon)

As you follow up with this project you will find the Mag catch/release will pose a problem. But if you want to try, start with a base made for a Kahr, or a Colt Pocket Nine.

Thank for the 'heads-up'. I'll keep everyone informed as it takes shape.

Look under accessories.  There is the answer.  I had asked the same question.

If Rohrbaugh could/would come up with the extension
it would make a huge difference in gripability and
controllability--even for us with smaller hands

Thanks, Tom. I hope it is sooner rather than later. It is
remotely possible that a few of the failures could be
prevented with a better grip environment.

If someone who has one and wants to lend it to me I have someone who could probably make some extensions, but wants to see one. If you have one to lend let me know by PM
or E-mail.

It appears time flew too fast on this request..  I have not seen any of these on the market or on the company website..  I wonder if it's a dead issue..  I guess it might defeat the whole purpose of the R9 Pocket size..

aren't there any moderators on this site, like most others?

Maybe i should post some four letter cuss words to see if anyone is monitoring the posts.
