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….

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.

Really Diggin' the Rughneck!!!
I have the Roughneck in 9mm, I like the new look! Frame looks a little rough, but still smooth (just enough to give it a little character), a little less flashy which is OK in my book. The barrel has a matte finish with a light polishing on the sides, gives it a just the right amount of classy, quality look. I have fired about 100 or so rounds through it with no issues using cheap bulk ammo, and a few hollow points. Accuracy was pretty surprising, At around 7 paces (steps), the top barrel grouped about 2.5" hitting around on the bullseye, bottom barrel grouped about 3-4" lower and still in the center. (I may not be the greatest shot either) but, It was good enough I thought for a 2.5" barrel.

Roughneck for a Redneck
Just bought the 9mm Roughneck, love it it shoot great fit and finish are just what I expected from Bond, this is my second Bond Arms derringer, the first was a Texas Defender in .45/.410. After 10 years my old hands can’t handle the larger caliber. I love the look and feel of the Roughneck, looks a lot like the Backup, only $250 less.
