request: help with principal parts

SALVETE OMNES!

Can someone help me figure out the principal parts of this verb?
I'm confused by the (-rr-) part:
abligūrio (-rr-), īvi, ītum, īre
4, v.
VALETE BENE!

abligūrio (-rr-), īvi, ītum, īre
4, v.

These parts seem out of order to me. The normal order would be:
abligūrio, abligūrīre, abligūrīvī, abligūrītum

Apparently the R in the stem is sometimes doubled, which is what the parentheses are trying to detail (as abligūrrio, etc)

Multas gratias.
That makes sense, I'm using a dictionary from 1872. Some of the macrons are missing when I compare it to the Oxford dictionary.
Very strange.

I just assume that the word can be written as either abligurio or abligurrio?
