Farmingdale #246 for sale
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:15:39 PM »
Reluctantly Iím putting up for sale a Pup Iíve had for quite some time!
Itís been a safe queen since Iíve had it. It is serial number 246,no R prefix,early gray,one out of approximately 48 of the first ones made!
    It has its original blue grips on it and I cannot find a mark on it anywhere!
     I have pictures but cannot seem to download them from photobucket? I know that there were some problems with them but unknown now?
     Includes 2 mags,everything that came with it originally and the box of course.
      Iím asking 1600.00 for this lovely specimen of a Rohrbaugh!!
     If you know Rohrbaughís you know what this is!
      If you want a pic I guess you can send me your mail on here or in an IM on here and Iíll keep an eye out for it as I get no notifications when someone hits this here. 
       Thanks for the look here and I loo forward to hearing from you!
       Take care and all the best my friends.
       B

       Since Iím having difficulty adding pics please email me.
        Brend encreed at hotmail dot com.   (Just put it together) Thanks

         Mike,sent pics thanks for the help!

Brenden. . . . . Try resizing your photos smaller using what I use:   Fotosizer

If the photos are on an Android based phone, you can text the pics to yourself, and the phone automatically downsizes the images to a more text-friendly size.  Save the image you received in the text and you will have a smaller image.

You do know that you can add pictures to your post directly from your phone (if you are using your browser to read the forum) or your computer without having to use a hosting service, right?

Mike,
      Thanks for putting my pics of the Pup up for me!
Looking at the pictures I canít see a spot on it! Being one of the first ones out there with the dark gray frame,the S on the slide,it sure is attractive! IMO!

I would love to see a photograph of the bottom of the magazine. If memory serves me, those 48+ pistols had the flat mag bases without the rectangular cutout in the rear for the magazine release to click in to for a more definitive grasp. If that's the case, I have some of the newer design with that cutout along with the updated magazine release itself. The magazine releases were (C.N.C.) cut from solid 17-4PH stainless steel and then hand deburred and tumble polished. Let me know if that helps any.

Brenden, forward a picture to me as well.  I'll post it up as I am interested, as I am sure others are as well.

Then we all can get a history lesson from Eric.
