Releases World's Smallest, Most Powerful 9 mm Semi-Automatic Pistol" rather than "Boberg Arms Corp. Releases World's Smallest, Lightest 9 mm Semi-Automatic Pistol" as originally issued. Complete corrected text follows. Boberg Arms Corp. Releases World's Smallest, Most Powerful 9 mm Semi-Automatic Pistol LAS VEGAS, NV--January 8, 2013--Boberg Arms Corporation announced the release of the Boberg XR9-S. The Boberg XR9-S is the world's smallest and lightest rotating-barrel, locked breech semi-automatic pistol. Combining power, accuracy and soft-recoil, the Boberg XR9-S was created out of a need for a smaller, more effective, hand gun. Utilizing the patented XRâ▒¢ Feeding Technology, the XR9-S cartridges are loaded nose forward into the back of the magazine. Live rounds are lifted straight into the chamber, eliminating the need for a feed ramp. This design allows a much longer barrel than other subcompacts, and it is rated for +P ammunition. The corporation's founder, Arne Boberg, created the XR9-S after noticing the need for a smaller, more powerful firearm. He said, "I have been an avid gun builder, user and collector my entire life. Looking at the gun market in 2003, I noticed that many manufacturers were taking their big guns and chopping them off to create smaller guns. Unfortunately, these guns were losing power and reliability. I knew that these smaller guns needed to be reinvented, not just repackaged." Originally designed for self-defense, it is also an accurate range gun. Boberg Arms customers value the XR9-S not only for its accuracy, but also for its artisanal hand-craftsmanship. Parts are hand fitted for optimal tolerances and the smoothest attainable action. The frame is billet aluminum and the slide billet stainless steel. Devin L., a customer from Florida, says, "I was really impressed with the quality of this pistol. A friend of mine compares it to the craftsmanship of a Swiss watch. I would agree."
