9 High end handguns
« on: June 14, 2018, 10:28:33 PM »
While catching up on some reading I came across the following list of high end handguns.

Many nice firearms on the list.

Pleased to see the Rohrbaugh was listed as number 2.

A wonderful read and I am humbled to see us at the number 2 spot. Such an honor.

Our father would have been proud of what "The Rohrbaugh Brothers" accomplished with our little gun, rest his soul.

Nice article.  Turns out I have 3 or the 9, or 4 of the 10 if you count my Seecamp.

Congratulations on the Rohrbaugh!!! I do love to shoot my Python more though...
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

Was the Elite ever $1195?  I thought the MSRP was around $1695

I think the Elite was around the $1,295 mark. The Elite Premium was around $1,795. . . . . with an option for a wood presentation case. Only 16 of those were made. Very rare R9.

I think Tribute MSRP was $1399, but I don't have that in writing anywhere.
