Introducing the Bond Arms Rough Series Double Barrel Handgun

Over the last few years, I have been fortunate to try a number of Bond Arms double-barrel handguns. I can without any hesitation report they are tough and well made. Bond Arms are made in Granbury, Texas and have been since 1995. Always looking for new and innovative ideas, Bond Arms has recently introduced a new line of double-barrel handguns known as the Rough Series at a very affordable price! The following press release from Bond Arms gives all the details.

Bond Arms is known for its outstanding fit and finish on every gun they build. To create a more affordable option for budget-conscious customers without compromising features, Bond Arms trimmed down its finishing process. The Rough Series was born and included the Roughneck, Rowdy, and the newest addition, the Grizzly double-barrel guns. The result is a handgun with the same outstanding qualities inherent in every Bond Arms’ gun without all the frills.

Each Rough Series gun undergoes a quick clean-up and deburring to knock off the sharp edges. After the initial treatment, guns are bead blasted, giving them a rough finish. The parting lines in the metal frame and trigger guard add to the cool factor. Swirly tool marks on the barrels and tiny casting imperfections and rough areas add a unique individual character to these handguns. Built-in a fraction of the time compared to standard production models; the reduced labor cost of the Rough Series guns translates into huge savings for the customer.

Bond Rough Series handguns include premium features found in all their double-barreled guns, like stainless-steel barrels and frames, cross-bolt safety, retracting firing pins, spring-loaded cam-lock lever and rebounding hammer. Rough Series guns use the same grade of stainless steel as all production models.

Rough Series – Roughneck

The Roughneck is a new type of Bond Arms’ gun. It’s built with a 2.5 in. barrel, chambered for 9mm, .357 Magnum/.38 Special, or .45 ACP and features a blade front sight and fixed rear sight. The compact handgun uses a textured rubber grip. The Roughneck works best with smooth-lined holsters.

Rough Series – Rough N’ Rowdy

At 5 inches long, the Rough N’ Rowdy is the ‘big brother’ in the line, chambered for the powerful .45 Long Colt and 2½-inch .410 Gauge shotshells. A blade front sight and fixed rear sight mount directly on its 3-inch barrels. Once again, a smooth-lined holster works best.

Rough Series – Grizzly

The Grizzly features several upgrades from its Rowdy cousin. Vibrant rosewood grips engraved with grizzly bear artwork, the Bond Arms name and a checkered panel add texture and character. The pistol includes a matching leather holster embossed with a grizzly bear. Its 3-inch barrels are chambered in .45 Long Colt and 2½-inch .410 Gauge shotshells.
