Laughing Definitely you should be looking for a different pistol. I also have been thinking about getting another R.O. in a 9mm. Think about a different one so we don't end up bidding against each other. Very Happy

There's one on GB, buy it now for 715.00. NIB but nothing mentioned about extra mags. I am bidding on a 14-6 right now and will probably exhaust the wifey patience quota if I win it. The 9 will probably go on a back burner.

I own a model 952-2 and they are great pistols. Just good luck trying to find one or after market products if you do find one. I would think that you would like one also. I checked and there is nothing on GA or GB. My second choice if I wanted a nice ( good looking, good shooting, not horribly expensive) 9mm I would probably pick the Kimber Team Match ll. I have had good results from the same pistol in a 40 cal model.

The RO 9mm is reviewed in American Rifleman's October issue. Find it on page 56.

Link to the electronic magazine

Ransom rest tests were discussed with these comments:

The three loads I selected had 115-, 124- and 147-gr. bullets, the three most popular weights. Measured center spread of those 9 mm groups averaged 2.43" (at 25 yards). For a service-grade pistol, I consider this to be well above average. Further, if I wanted to use the RO in competition, I would try a much broader range of ammunition or initiate a crusade in handloading to develop a blue-chip load. I am betting this effort would uncover ammo that shot well under the 1.5" mark.
