    Who would do a good job at this? I'm trying to improve reliability of a gun that doesn't extract spent cases very well and noticed machining marks in the chamber.

    I'm close to Portland. I assumed I'd need to ship it off to an expert though. I cant get a replacement barrel and don't want it messed up.

    It's a Rohrbaugh R9. I was just looking for recommendations on where get the chamber chromed and polished to improve reliability. The company closed up shop a month after I purchased it and left me in the lurch on a warranty claim. It's an SS barrel.

    most production guns are chambered so quickly at the factory reamer marks are left it the chamber sometimes causing extraction problems, hopefully a bit of polishing will cure this condition. hard chroming may be going a bit overboard.

    Well if it's not insanely expensive I'd like to go all the way with the chrome. Then if that doesn't solve the issue I'm done with this POS and will list it's parts on gun broker. I had an authorized warranty claim with Rohrbaugh when they went belly up and left all their customers in the lurch on repairs.

    Its a Rohrbaugh R9! I'd call them, for the price of this pistol they should also pay shipping cost and no charge to you.
    If you want to sell it let me know.

    Well that's what I expected from them back in January when it didn't work. After talking to Mr Rohrbaugh himself on several occasions they finally had me ship it back at my expense via fedex.

    When it got there they refused the package and let it come back to Oregon. Since then they have had zero communications with any former customers. They closed or sold to Para who doesn't do anything either. They just vanished in February. A fly by night move after telling a few of us to return defective pistols.

    It's all on the Rohrbaugh forum, but the mod won't let anyone trash The Rohrbaugh brothers.
