Experiment with Rohrbaugh R9s: Spring-gate 2008
I am going to be doing a little experiment with my Rohrbaugh R9s.
I have ended up with 650 rounds of 9mm ammo and the only 9mm gun I actually own and shoot is my Rohrbaugh so I am going to put all 650 rounds through it over the course of the next week. I only own one other 9mm (S&W m659) since selling my XD-9SC and I do not shoot it.
I managed to get 150 though it yesterday and that was on top of the 100 rounds (not included in the 650 round test) I put through it last weekend. By the end of the test I should have 750 rounds through it.
The goal of the test is going to be to test the recoil spring. I will not be changing the springs until the gun starts to fail.
I was told by Rohrbaugh that the spring should realistically last for over 500 rounds before even starting to show wear and that the 200-300 round spring change suggestion is just a worst case scenario thing. I guess I will see for myself.
Wish me luck. :)
