|The Rohrbaugh R9 is still quite a recent addition
to the ''pocket rockets''. Shown here are guns from
2004 and they are early output. The gun is produced
to very tight tolerances by use of very high class
CNC machinery and as a 9mm is very 'cutting edge'.
It has not been without its problems along the way
with a few cases but Rohrbaugh customer service
has always endevored to put things right.
The latest addition to the Rohrbaugh stable will
be the .380 which is essentially the same gun but
in the smaller caliber. It will no doubt share the
butter smooth DA only trigger which is a silky 7
lbs pull. For some general information on aspects
pertaining to the R9 - check out the R9
FAQ site and to see a fun comparison between
and the BFR, check this page..
The pic below shows the two early guns, which came
out of the small Farmingdale (NY) factory - the
company is now in a much larger premises at Deer
Park NY. The 'silver' frame has long been dropped
due to problems over consistent anodic finish and
also due to cost considerations the carbon fiber
grips are now replaced by black G-10 grips.
