bond arms roughneck
 
Rural King has them in .45 acp or 38/357 on sale for 259.99$......so about 300$ OTD.

Seems like a heck of a good price for a Bond.Thinking real hard about this.
I'll check at my local shop that I normally go to on my lunch break and see if they price match,or close to it.

Be nice to add to my derringer collection.

Question to bond owners,do you get extra barrels and change them out often,or stick with what ya got?

I've been looking at these also because they seem cool. Have had a hard time justifying a 2 shot pistol though.

seems like a lot of money for the size (too big) and just two shots.

Other than maybe a toy, theyve never made much sense to me either. Considering they are almost as big as my Glock 26, I mean really, whats the point?

My local shop seems to have at least one in there all the time, and while they seem to sell here and there, they also seem to come back pretty regular and quick and go into the used case.

Im guessing they arent all they fun/easy to shoot, especially in the larger calibers, and the novelty probably wears off pretty quick.

Thanks,I never paid close attention to Bonds,but thought they were always in the 350-450$ range,which was overpriced for me.Thanks for sticking to the topic.

Well,back from luch.They couldn't get near that price.

>>>>but.........dang it...got a 9 shot sentinel high standard just because...

I have handled a couple at the gunshow and they seem to be as big and heavy as a 5 shot 38 snub. I passed and have never looked at them again.

But a tiny, well made derringer would interest me. Problem is I don't think they make one. The Cobra doesn't have a very good reputation. But the size is about right. One of those in a 32 of some sort would be hard to turn down. Something like this.

IMHO this is the only deringer worth having, and most of the time a J frame (or Shield, or G43) is a better choice.

cook 10-23-2019 03:34 AM

As mentioned above,they are not practicle.Not good for self defense,hunting,or target shooting.
But they are fun!
So far have
.22
.22 magnum
.38
9 mm

the 2 choices for the bond was .38/357 and 45 acp. at that price

I purchased one for the same reasons you're considering. I won't say it's a waste of money but there are better ways to spend $300. The derringer is HUGE and heavy. I've carried it once and that was enough. I've shot it a few times and it isn't a bad shooter. With only two shots and it's size, it's not really a practical firearm for carry.

i am a bond arms fan, have several frames and multiple barrels (it is my one crazy indulgence in life, so sue me, haha). the bond arms roughneck/rowdy is less polished, less fitted and less smooth. mine wouldn’t accept regular b.a. barrels. after an hour long discussion with a reluctant b.a. csr i finally got approval to return it at my expense to b.a. for warranty service. i got it back quickly and sold it full disclosure. a used regular b.a. derringer with the upgraded action (wider trigger and hammer) can be a sweet deal. i am disappointed with b.a. and would stay far away from the roughneck/rowdy variants.

After I got the main handguns purchased (glocks, 1911, revolvers) I picked up one of these. solid little guns. I wouldnt choose it over everything else, but I just wanted one.

xstuntman 11-09-2019 10:12 PM

I honestly didn't know about those.
Christmas item #1 for me.

hanzy4200 12-03-2019 05:13 PM

No firearm is useless, but these are about the closest you can get. Heavy, awkward, hard to fire accurately, no capacity, ect.

cook 12-04-2019 03:15 AM

Thanks all.I didn't realize this was their"entry" level version,as I'm used to seeing them go in the 400$+ range new.
