Any Rohrbaugh fans?
« on: September 07, 2018, 02:31:47 PM »
Any Rohrbaugh fans here? It is the smallest lightest, 21 ounce 9mm EVER made. They were the NRA handgun of the year in 2005. Originally sold for $1000-$1200 range.


There were only 6000 made, 3 a day with every one put together by Eric Rohrbaugh.If you can't afford a Rolex get a Rohrbaugh. Made with the same hand fit precission.


I am down to two now but at one time owned 10. They are still on G-Broker for $800 and up, $800 for a shooter. They also msade a COVERT. The COVERT was a basic two tone that was sent to Wilsom Combat. They polished all ine internals, I had one and didn''t see any difference, Duracoated the entire gun black and stamped COVERT on the frame under the slide.


Lot of money for a novelty but the basic Rohrbaugh in 9mm, they also made I THINK 147 in 380 is a work of art that riges in the front pocket as easy as a .25 does.................but this has more punch.


Remingtom bought them out a few years ago with the IDEA of mas producing them with plastic frames. Eric told hem it wouldn't work but they insisted, paid him, brother, and mother, the ENTIRE company a lot of money. Remington had to settle to a making it in .380, bigger, with a LOT of extra levers.

I had one I had purchased in 2004 or 2005. Sold it in or about 2010. As expensive as it was I had a few issues with FTF and FTE. Made a little profit selling it.

Wow! Don't know if it was ammo or a cleaning issue. As I said I have owned TEN. Don't think I ever had any issues. I cary one daily. You must also NEVER limp wrist, that will cause FTE.

Didn't they recommend recoil spring changes at something like every 500rds?

Actually its recommended the recoil spring be replaced every 200 rounds. Wolff makes them, as they did all the springs. Recoil springs are a whopping $5.00 each but to be honest at 18 ounces, loaded, its 'carry lot, shoot a little' gun.
