It looks like he added a note at the bottom of the listing stating it's a Stealth.  The finish looks pretty beat up too.  It might be a good deal if it was carried often but not shot a lot.

I just gave that one a look over and it looks like what Phil surmises. . . . . . carried a lot and shot a little.

The reason I say that is I've seen plenty of these when they showed up for any work and this has that look. If you look at the edges, they are worn a little but, overall, no tell tale marks from abuse. The grip screws look untouched and sharp, not all beat up and stripped. It's serial number is in the mid 3700s, a good time for us. The trigger and mag release are not beat up. Overall, my hunch it is a great carry suspect. Looks like the extractor isn't out of line or "used up" so much. Clean in it's lines except "Throwing it around like a tool". . . . . and I mean like a tool, something to use when performing your job or tasks, not a tool like the person was a jerk with no respect for the unit. He actually used it as designed.

Anyway. . . . . that's my thoughts on it.

Enjoy the weekend gents. . . . .

IF I could pick it up cheap enough (and I had the available funds) I’d grab it and have it refinished in DLC. (The barrel in melonite so it wouldn’t show wear)

$605.00 is the current bid on it. Not a bad price especially if you want a project. I'm interested to see the final selling price tomorrow. With 6 or more different bidders (including an old 'friend' from here) I don't think that is the final price.

I also find it strange that is the only Rohrbaugh with any bids on it.

Looks like it sold for $694.99

That was a great purchase by any standard!
