Bond Arms Derringer

Saw a banner ad that showed a derringer with a frame that looks like it's polymer. Normally not a fan but in .45 ACP and at 18.5 oz this ought to be fun to shoot. Throw in in a pocket for Custer's Last Stand.

The Bond boss, Gordon, says in the video that the frame is still stainless, with a crinkle finish powder coat. Barrels are bead blasted. Starting with .45; adding 9mm and .40 versions later.

The quailty of Bonds always impressed me, but 2 rounds in something that big just doesn't get it for carry, for me. I bet one would still be fun, though!

Guess I can't read. A 18.5 oz it isn't bad.weight wise and in 45 ACP it could be a stopper. I agree 2 rounds and reload make it nothing more than a back up.

Bond is a super gun .. I've owned over 10 bonds in my life . These are the only Bonds I own now . The Bond is too heavy and slow . Of all the guns I own the Bond would be the last one I carry for CCW .

What is the safety mechanism? Does the hammer rest on the frame? If I ever got one it would be to carry in the bottom pocket of cargo shorts as a back up although my pants are heavy enough now.

Rebounding hammer is the auto safety with floating firing pin , plus a hammer block . I think the Bond is a super gun but it is a poor CCW gun .

I own 2 Cobra .38 Spl. Derringers, and haven't been too happy with them-- I know these are designed to be used at "bad breath" distance, but my two are all over the map, when shooting them. Was thinking of loading up some .38 Spl. Shot cartridges for them, as a "back up" back up!

Be very careful with the Cobra and most other derringers . Unless they change them .. They don't have a rebounding hammer and the safety must be applied manually went loading it and closing the action or carrying it . The hammer rest on firing pin and sticks out of the frame if the safety is not on . The firing pin rest against the primer . I hope this makes sense .
