History[edit]

Bond Arms Cowboy Defender .45 Colt/.410 Shotshell Derringer

Bond arms was founded by longtime tool and die maker, Greg Bond in Granbury, Texas. The company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 and was licensed by the BATFE as a firearms manufacturer and dealer. Bond Arms is the largest manufacturer of derringers in the firearms industry.[1]

Products[edit]

Bond Arms Derringers are made in a variety of calibers including the .45 Long Colt /.410 Shotshell. The three most popular models are the Texas Defender, Cowboy Defender, and Snake Slayer Derringers. Bond Arms Derringers are equipped with a trigger guard, except the Cowboy Defender. The trigger guard is removable for a more traditional appearance. Bond Arms constructs their Derringers in such a way that a user can change barrels and switch from one caliber to another.[2]

In fall of 2014 Bond Arms introduced two California Legal models called the Big Bear and Brown Bear.
