SCARCE L.E.S. ROGAK P18 GAS OPERATED SEMI-AUTO PISTOL BLACKENED STAINLESS

Item Description (READ ALL POLICIES BEFORE BIDDING)

This is a USED. Rogak, Inc L.E.S. P-18 pistol in 9 mm. It is in good condition with some mars in finish which are identified in the photos. It comes with 1- 18 round magazine. It was made by Rogak, Inc in Morton Grove, Ill in the late 1970's. It is essentially a copy of the Steyr Gb gas operated pistol. There were only 2300 made and are therefore rare. This example is in very good condition with a very good bore and good metal. It has a slide mounted firing pin block safety and a heel magazine release. Overall this is a very interesting and rare piece of firearms history.

This pistol is a licensed copy of the Steyr Gb P-18 introduced in 1978 and manufactured in Morton Grove, Illinois, the first place in the United States to ban ownership of handguns. With the passage of the anti-handgun law in Morton Grove, Rogak was forced to cease production and never resumed, only a few were ever produced. Accompanied by an article from Guns & Ammo magazine field testing this pistol.

At the time, STEYR had not a direct branch in the USA, just an importer called Les Rogak, owner of the LES-ROGAK INC. in Morton Grove, Illinois. By the time the launch of the STEYR GB-P-18 was ready, Rogak received a set of manufacturing drawings for the new pistol. Whether he got the plans for publicity purposes to announce Steyr's upcoming handgun or had permission to build the pistol under his own name (the advantage of that arrangement for Steyr being deniability if the gun should fail) is not clear. In any event, he set up a manufacturing line under his LES-ROGAK INC. activity in Morton Grove, IL, and began building the pistol as the Rogak P-18. What resulted was a gun whose troubled history ominously foreshadowed that of the later GB, which it strongly resembled. The only (appearing) manufacturing differences between the original STEYR P-18-GB and the LES ROGAK was that the ROGAK was made 100%in stainless steel & barrel bushing pin. Seemingly, the Rogak had a lot going for it. Its advanced design and stainless-steel construction, combined with the highest-capacity production magazine available on any automatic pistol seemed to give it great potential for success. Unfortunately, several factors conspired against the Rogak. the 9x19mm-Luger/Parabellum/NATO chambering simply wasn't that popular in the United States in the late 1970's.

The pistol was actually produced before the Steyr & was touted as the “wonder-nine of the future.” The pistol takes down like the Steyr except for the pin through the barrel bushing must me pressed in as opposed to being retracted by the take down lever on the GB. This weapon was variously dismissed as useless by hobbyists, respected by professionals, and valued by collectors
