« on: October 10, 2019, 04:14:42 PM »
Any chance that the Remington .380 magazine springs will work in a R9?

I have a similar question:  will a Remington RM380 magazine function in a Rohrbaugh 380?
Has anyone out there tried?  Thanks.

I would assume that the Remington and Rohrbaugh magazines are not compatible because they have different mag release mechanisms.

Regarding the spring question, RM380 magazines can be found for as little as $10 online.  Not that much for a test of you need one.  I am interested in results if someone need mag springs.

Sorry for the late response guys.  The answer in a nut shell is:   No

We had different spring rates for the .380 and the 9mm due to the cycle rate of each caliber in the series.

Checkmate Industries did those for us.

. . . . . and lastly, I do not have any of those laying around unfortunately.

I spoke with Wolff Gunsprings and they indicated they might produce them if there would be enough of a demand for them.

They did mention they sell a LOT of R9 recoil springs.

Walter is good people. So are all of his staff, which does include some family members!  Very cool guy and place.

Walter always took care of us at Rohrbaugh. . . . . . . .
