    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

guns and chopping them off to create smaller guns. Unfortunately, these
guns were losing power and reliability. I knew that these smaller guns

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
