the R9 compared with other guns and objects
| To supplement previous
pic's, I have taken the following.
They are partly useful and partly ''tongue-in-cheek''
in as much as, some comparisons are wildly ''over the
top''! However, these may still prove of interest, both
as pure comparison as well as outrageously absurd!
The Bersa Thunder
is a useful pocket pistol, if a bit heavy. It is
in .380 cal (9x17) and useful nonetheless. Here
with the R9 we can see it is substantially larger.
The Browning HiPower
Practical is also 9mm ... and of course a lot
larger. A great carry piece but - look at the
R9's relatively diminutive scale ... and yet also
Here the R9 is
against a CZ-52 ..... hardly the archetypal carry
piece but for some, worth consideration. Quite
a difference in scale!
The Smith and Wesson
Model 27 (here a M27-2 in 5" bbl) .... is
a large gun by any standards ..... and against
the R9 looks almost gargantuan!
The Makarov, in
9mm Makarov (9x18) is a popular gun, if only because
of low prices. It is a viable carry piece, very
reliable but as can be seen ........ significantly
larger than R9, and of course heavier also.
| The Para Ordnance
P12-45 is quite a compact carry piece but - way
larger than the R9 - and of course much heavier,
but in .45acp cal.
Kel Tech's P3-AT
is actually smaller than the R9 .. and lighter
but - using the .380 cal round (9x17). A very
pocketable piece but - not in the league of the
Rohrbaugh I would say.
Another 9mm comparison.
The Ruger P95DC .. against the R9. Big size difference.
The P95 will accept +P ammo but .... is a large
gun to tote, tho I have used mine for carry in
the past quite a bit.
This Colt Sistema
is effectively a Colt Government model. It is
large and heavy, tho of course using the .45acp
round - a true ''full size''. By comparison, the
R9 is quite a ''shrimp''!!
Here is my daily
carry - the Ruger SP-101. Significantly larger
than R9 and heavier too. It is relegated however
to non duty when circumstances dicate, when the
R9 takes over as the all but ultimate 9mm pocket
My SW99 is quite
a compact 9mm ... tho obviously larger than the
Rohrbaugh. It is however quite light and so a
viable carry option. When push comes to shove
however and concealed has to mean concealed -
it is over to R9 ... for maximum concealability.
OK - tongue in
cheek here! My Raging Bull in .454 Casull ...
stacked up against the R9. Of course - somewhat
of a difference in scale!
Hmmm ... no contest
here either! Further tongue in cheek. The BFR
from Magnum Research is chambered in 45-70 ..
it is indeed a large gun!! The R9 is by comparison
rather diminutive but - well - the BFR is hardly
a carry piece!
