R9 on GB with Slide Crack
« on: July 21, 2018, 09:43:40 AM »
Good Saturday morning All,
    Thereís an R9 up for auction on GB, it's the one with the cracked slide,

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/780093049

Just any FYI in case anyone on the forum is interested in resurrecting this one -aside from the cracked slide,  the recoil rod, cap, and springs looks like someone took a large pipe wrench to it, and all are bent out of shape quite a bit. (a new guide rod assembly is undoubtedly required here).  As for it being in Ďnear excellent conditioní,  itís had several thousand rounds put down itís pipe, and it shows in both the slide rails and the frame rails.   Lastly, the right slide rail on the frame has started developing a crack - I donít see a fix for that one being very simple !

On the good side, the seller was very easy to deal with, gun was returned without hassle. (But I notice on this new auction that heís changed his return policy to  ĎAs is, No Refundí.  (gee, I wonder why). 😂
Just thought Iíd share an experience with other Forum members / Rohrbaugh Junkies, such as myself ! 

JG 👮🏻

At a shade over $100, I think it's a good deal if nothing but for the magazines, grips, box, parts, etc.

Good luck, I don't see it going for that, but you never know.

I think Eric still has a few extra later slides lying around and depending on where the crack is on the frame, it may be an easy laser weld and grind down. It all depends on the price though.

Good Luck PursuitSS.


(I do admit the first thing I checked was the sellers name to see if it had any 'Luger' in it  8)   )

I would have held onto it myself at $100. Or $200. just for the parts as you stated, but it wasnít that low $$ when I got it.

Tattoo, I think I mentioned that the frame looks like itís beginning to get a crack -itís not as visible as the crack on the slide, but looks to be the beginning of a crack forming.

Out sounds like the wise option on this one.
