The Covert is an aftermarket mod like the Cogan. 

Someone got a great deal for this one last week.  $956 with chrome, grip extension, checkering, and sight dots drilled in.  Doesn't look like it has the ported barrel some Cogans have.

Thank you, Phil.  After I posted my request, I read one of Ericís posts, from a a couple of years back, and learned about the Covert being aftermarket.
Now I know about the Cogan, from you.  The Covert is a beautiful gun and I bet the Cogan is as well.
I have to stop somewhere. Otherwise, I would soon be looking at different periods in the development of this great firearm, if I were trying for a complete collection.  That would become an expensive proposition. 
Maybe Iíll just keep looking for that coyote.
Thank you for the information!

Just wondering...How many Coyotes were made?

It is in that post from Eric a couple of years ago, and I canít remember off-hand., was it 7 to 10?
And you know the danger, there are a couple different colors. :-)

Post was in March 2017. Seven or eight were made.  Youíve owned some great guns, Norm. I bought my first Stealth from you, in 2012, I believe.  Which are your favorite models?

I just saw your post, Eric,in this thread, and Iíve already resigned myself. Iím going to have to add a Cogan and Covert.
Dog-gone, you, and your works of art! Theyíre gonna lead me into the poor house. Do me a favor, all you guys; donít tell me about any other models!

I am partial to a Stealth with VZ Black/Grey checkered grips with a black mag extension. I sold long ago a Coyote & a Cogan with ports that I still kick myself in the ass for selling. I had over 28 Rohrbaughs & a safe I couldn't close any longer.

Someone came up with a list of all the models and itís got to be over a hundred, so youíre definitely going to be broke trying to get one of each. Itís not just standard or Stealth.  Itís sights or no sights.  Farmingdale or Deer Park.  R9S or R9.  R or no R serial.  No USA slide, USA slide, U.S.A. Slide. Standard, Steath, Stealth Elite, Special Forces, Tribute, ďSilverĒ.   I have a ďCustomĒ, which is a Special Forces with a green slide.  I think itís one of only two.  Elite Premiums were serial number 1-16 of 16 and came in a Rohrbaugh display case.  Rohrbaugh knives were black or stainless and plain blade or serrated, so thereís four more to buy.  Another grail gun is the factory engraved and gold accented 3000.  There were a bunch of custom serial numbers with peoplesí initials.  An NRA auction item with a custom serial.  The guns from the Rohrbaugh manual cover photo. 

Norm, if it makes you feel better, that Coyote you let go wasnít a real Coyote.  The coating was so thick the slide wouldnít function.  The barrel wasnít black like the Coyotes.

Thank you.  What was the ďSilverĒ?   You know, the more I think about it, I saw that listing for the Cogan that you noted.  I remember seeing the finish and just not knowing what to think about it, purely because I didnít know what I was looking at. What a shame.

I think the Silver was an experiment to see how an all silver frame and slide would look.  They came out before the Tribute.
