How did we get the price down so low?

Bond Arms has been well known for having a premium fit and finish to every gun we make.  To get to that level of aesthetic quality it takes a lot of time. We have taken that process and trimmed it down to create a gun that still has the robust qualities of our pre-existing models without all of the frills.
People have asked, are you using die cast or pot metals? The answer is NO!! They are all the same grade of stainless steel like our current production models.
To give you an idea of our current process for manufacturing our current guns, we literally sand every part, then we spend a tremendous amount of time Polishing and hand finishing all these same parts to the Quality Finish that Bond Arms has always been known for.
Quality Control (QC) on our current guns nearly borders on excessive. Once the guns are shot and all functions work as they should, our QC guys then go to extreme measures to find every cosmetic flaw, scratch, ding, or pit or anything else that didn’t pass our inspection. This means the guns are sent back to be fixed, which in most cases, involve totally disassembling the gun to re-polish or fix any flaw that they may find. On occasion the same gun may go through that same process 3 to 4 times until it passes QC.
With the RoughNeck and Rough N Rowdy series, we do minimal clean up and deburr to make sure there are no sharp edges and then we bead blast the finish. With this gun, part of the COOL FACTOR is that you can actually see the parting lines in the metal frame and trigger guard. As a final touch we left in some of the swirly tool marks on the barrel just to give it that more ROUGH & TUMBLE Look. Also, since we are not sanding and polishing the frame, you may see tiny casting imperfections and rough areas that would never be acceptable for our current line of products.
This may not sound like much, but in comparison we can build 4 to 5 RoughNeck’s in the same time as it takes to build ONE Texas Defender. That Is a Huge Amount of Savings on LABOR that allows us to pass those SAVINGS down to the consumer’s level, which for the First Time Ever has allowed us to have a new Bond Arms Hand Cannon available for under $300!
After this past NRA show we saw that most of the higher volume sales of handguns were in the $300 to $350 and below range. When we came back from the show we set down and went part by part on our gun and by still using the same quality of parts we came up with ways to reduce cost on every part, but still build a TANK Of a Gun….

exceeded all expectations
I bought this gun just because I liked the thought of such a little gun still being able to pack a punch. But, I had very hope for it being an accurate weapon. When I took it out to the range to test it, I threw a target on the ground and walked about 30 feet away from it hoping to just hit the paper. Was I ever pleasantly surprised when it hit the bullseye? I would have bet against that happening. Also, using .38 special rounds, it was very easy to control. I expect the .357 would be a bit more violent, but I haven't tried it with that round. In short, this gun has way exceeded what I expected from it and I couldn't be happier with it. I did have to pay above retail for it, but I am so happy with it that I just don't care. And even above retail, it is by far my cheapest gun. I highly recommend this gun.

WOW!
Recently acquired the Roughneck in 9mm. The fit and finish are perfect, with just the right amount of polish on the sides of the barrel. I was hesitant about the size, I have small hands, by no problem. Accuracy is great out to 20-25 feet, all shots within 6 inches of center mass. Not bad for an old guy with arthritis in his hands. The recoil wasn't bad at all. Everyone I show it to is impressed. EDC backup for my Glock. Fantastic job, Bond Arms!!!

Roughneck 357/38
I just purchased the roughneck 357/38 and test fired it.... I was afraid of the 357 kick but all it did was shake my hand......... I think this will be perfect for home defense because I can quickly access it... And it is accurate and loud........ I have a 20 gauge double barrel with bird shot for close fire fights but the Derringer will give me an opportunity to get to the shotgun if necessary... I had never fired a Derringer and was concerned that the handle was too small for a big kick...no problem at all....Thank you for the peace of mind Charles Slavis killbuck Ohio

Perfect Firearm for the price
This was my second Bond Arms purchase.  I purchased the Old Glory but it was too high quality to carry for everyday use. I bought the RoughNeck to carry when working in the woods and on the farm.  It isn't as polished but it looks really good.  I use the 9mm and it works well on snakes and is good for protection.  It shoots well out to about 20 yards then with my shooting skills gets a little wobbly.  I highly recommend it to anyone needing a daily carry easy to conceal or open carry gun.
