The Bond Arms Grizzly Is The Newest Rough Series Derringer
The Bond Arms Grizzly is the newest offering in the company’s Rough Series of affordable derringer-style handguns. The new single-action, double-barrel pistol inherits the premium features found on all Bond Arms products. The Grizzly features stainless-steel barrels and frame, cross-bolt safety, retracting firing pins, spring-loaded cam-lock lever and rebounding hammer.
Bond Arms Grizzly Fires .45 Colt / .410
The Grizzly sports a three-inch barrel, with blade front sight and fixed rear sight. It’s chambered in .45 Long Colt. The handgun can also fire 2½-inch .410 bore shotshells. The Grizzly frame is compatible with all standard Bond Arms barrels. Adding texture and character to the handgun are the rosewood grips engraved with grizzly bear artwork, the Bond Arms name and a checkered panel. The pistol includes a matching leather holster embossed with a grizzly bear.
Same Bond Arms Quality, Less Polish
The Bond Arms Grizzly follows the earlier Rowdy and Roughneck models in the company’s Rough Series.
These value-priced pistols use the stainless-steel construction and quality control standards seen in all the company’s guns. But by cutting down on the polishing and hand-finishing, Bond Arms is able to passing the savings on to their customers.
Rough Series pistols undergo a minimal cleanup and deburring to make sure there are no sharp edges and then are bead-blast finished. Parting lines in the metal frame and trigger guard, as well a swirly tool mark on the barrel, may be visible. Sanding and polishing the frame removes tiny casting imperfections and rough areas, but with a rough finish, these unique marks are visible, giving each pistol its own unique “character.”
