Boberg XR9-S Reviewed

    The long awaiting Boberg XR9 is not vaporware! Shooting Illustrated got their hands on an XR9-S

    Recently, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one of the more unique pistols made in America today—the Boberg XR9-S Onyx edition. While gun-designer/company-owner Arne Boberg describes his pistol as using a rotating-barrel locked-breech mechanism, that alone doesn’t come close to describing the ingenuity of the design. The inspiration for the XR9-S was to create a pistol that delivered the downrange performance of the Glock 26 subcompact in a true pocket-pistol-size package comparable to the Ruger LCP.

    I love the design! It is a snubnosed-autoloader.
