Anybody have any experience with this gun, looks like a kick ass "pocket gun", but a little pricey.
I would love to have one but as you've noted they're a little pricey. Hit up the rohrbaugh forums and you'll see they're also a little picky with ammo. 147gr rounds don't seem to agree with them at all. Its a little stubborn, but if it won't run my favorite round, I won't buy it.
Looks like a damn fine gun though
If I'm not mistaken, Platniumthunder mentioned something about this gun before. Can't remember what he said about it though
I certainly agree the workmanship looks to be top notch despite the problems that do get reported for them but if it won't run ra9t I know in the long run I'll be mad that I spend $1k on a gun that won't run common ammo. If you like gold dots though...
This thread is missing something..
I train with a guy that was carrying his as a BUG last winter. Saw him a few weeks ago and asked him about it, he said it just wasn't reliable enough for him to carry and trust it. So now it sits in his safe.
Not a fan of the Euro-gay mag release.
Not from me. I have zero experience with them.
Dude, just get a 642/442 and be done with it.
I take it you've never trained with a heel mag release? Once you've done it a bit it becomes second nature.
They are over priced... I don't care for them because they have a magazine disconnect. If the mag's not in it, you can't even rack the slide to clear the gun....Shooting one... if shot fine for a gun of it's size... close range back up piece.
I think you're wrong. I don't even think a handgun exists where you can't work the slide without the mag in. How would you clear it? Rack through an entire magazine til its empty?
I'm sure it does, I just like to stick with what's familiar.
Hmmmm... AHHH shit, it was the SeeCamp .380, not the Rohrbaigh that had that "feature" and yes, we had to rack through a full magazine, or pull the magazine out, empty it, reinsert, then clear the chamber, since she only had 1 magazine...
We did a night of "backup pistols" at the range one day...
I liked the keltech .380 the best personally, but I don't carry a back up gun.. just the 26 and a backup magazine...
I am gonna get one of those also, regardless.
