W.T.B. Robar and Premium Elite, unfired and blemish free
« on: October 20, 2020, 03:48:00 PM »
I’d like to buy an unfired, no blemishes whatsoever Robar and Premium Elite.
Any out there?
Thank you, Chris

Ahhhh. . . . . . The Crème De La Crème Mr. Dasso. 

They will bring you much pleasure, of that I am certain.

I wish you well on your adventure to acquire such intriguing items.

They are out there, they do exist.

Ya well . . . . . . . Hold tight then. . . . . perhaps something will eventually come up.

Just don't stop the search. . . . . . because as we all know. . . . . that's half of the fun!

To Eric or anyone reading,

Does the Premium Elite differ from the Elite, but for presentation case and rarity?
I apologize, as I’m certain this has had to be discussed earlier.

Ugh. . . . You caught me Chris as I was fading off. Yes, they are two totally different R9s.
I'm too bushed to discuss it right now. Forgive me, but I'll have to get back to you on this. I haven't been feeling well recently and I need to get some rest now. I'll be back with the differences shortly.

Good Night all.

Good morning, Eric!

I decided to poke around, and the site made it easy as could be to find past posts on the differences:

The elite has black slide except for the sides are pollished.  The internals are also pollished and jewled to a higher degree than other Rohrbaughs (basic Rohrbaugh is still very nice and smooth).

This forum is such a great resource! Thank you to everyone who contributes and maintains it.
