This is the backup to a black LC9S that I carry daily.
100% reliable and very accurate.
Has the best striker trigger of any gun I've fired.

But mostly wanted to show off and praise the outstanding work by Robar Firearms.

Anyone in the market for a perfect micro 9mm pocket pistol.
Make sure this one is concidered.
And I highly recommend Robar.

That is all..

Norton Special is plating all internal parts they can plate.
Don't have a parts list.
But slide, barrel, mag release, slide release, trigger...

Barrel and Slide alone I think is $99.
That plus all the small parts plated for a polymer gun is called The Norton Special.

My gun (Norton Special) was $143.00 out the door

So better sweat resistance and does it lighten the break or does it clean up the reset?

Haven't shot it yet.
Got it NIB from Bud's for $299.
Same day I picked it up at the FFL it was dropped off at Robar.
Just got the gun back from Robar last night.

Mostly looking for corrosion resistance (and good looks - LOL).
The LC9s trigger is outstanding right out of the box.

My favorite pocket gun. It's accurate and fairly inexpensive. The trigger is nice but all my Shield's triggers IMHO are slightly better. I just carry my LC9s more because it's smaller and shoots just as good as the Shield's. I really like the Robar finish.

Word is the LC9s Pro has been discontinued for some reason?
If you want a second one, better jump while you can
That's actually what prompted me to buy a second one.

My LC9s is awesome and I do carry it more than others.
I just can't see adding another $150 to a $300 gun.
It's real purdy though OP.

Yup, I get it.
Not sure it's worth it at all.
But I'm all about the shiny - LOL!
And I live in Phoenix just minutes from Robar.

Looks Sharp OP.

Robar does nice work.

I had them do my Draco C (finish was in bad shape when I purchased it).

I went with the Poly T2 and NP3 internals.

Considering taking them my CZ P01.

Wonder who stole it?

It's been ongoing for around a decade . .


ETA: Interesting. Something weird is going on.

Mebbe one of you guys who's posted to it can help us out with the URL.
