Bond Arms Handguns
What People Are Saying
As Good as the reviews all say!
- Excellent fit and finish! Solid as a rock!
I have a Bond Ranger and a Driving Holster. It is by far the best gun and holster I have ever had and I have had many. Over the years I have had many small and large handguns and holsters. I can wear the gun and holster day and night and not feel uncomfortable. It is very concealable too. I have never been asked if I was “packing”. Thanks Bond Arms.
- Bond Ranger – It is by far the best gun and holster I have ever had and I have had many.

I have owned American Arms Derringer in 45LC /410 and the Bond Arms is much more advanced. The Ranger II is KING of the Derringer market. I have just ordered another barrel and another holster.

I just bought a Bond Ranger. It sounds dumb, but is seems to me to be a cross between a Swiss Watch and a Sherman Tank. I could not be more pleased with fit and finish and sheer strength. Yes I will buy another one for my wife and all the barrels for me… It will be a collection to be proud of…

I have had a few times on the phone with Bond Arms and came away each time more then satisfied. The Snake Slayer with the 3 inch barrel with.410 with the .45 colt is my favorite hand gun and I own a few……….
- I own a few
Just received 45/410 barrels for my cowboy. This is one awesome gun. Even the Bond Arms cap is made in USA. Amazing.
- This is one awesome gun.
Just came from the range and I/We have to tell you, our USA Defender is one kick-ass piece of hardware! Turned a few heads shooting with the 45 colt ammo. Proud to carry this fine weapon, will be a part of our arsenal for years to come and make a great family heirloom. Everyone should feel this protected!!

I bought the Snake Slayer a few weeks ago. Very happy with the quality and performance. Took it to the range and it shoots as advertised, at 7 yards paper plate didn’t have a chance. Though the heavy trigger pull takes a little getting use to it handles great. Easy all day carry. Looking forward to trying a couple of different barrels in future.
- Very happy with the quality and performance.
Your gun is awesome as you know.
BUT THIS IS ABOUT THE SERVICE,ATTITUDE AND OVERALL COMPANY SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE YOUR STAFF AND ALL THAT I’VE
DEALT WITH WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND FANTASTIC.
THANKS ROBERT HYLAND
- COMPANY SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE
I have owned the Snake Slayer for a few years. I use it as my carry gun loaded with Winchester PDX1-410. Usually “experts” tell me I need “more” as a carry gun. More rounds, more size, more power. I just take the Bond Snake Slayer to the range and after a few rounds; no one seems to think it’s just a “toy” anymore. I also have the 9 mm barrel for range use. It’s small, reliable, and powerful. You have a great product, great service and great quality. Thanks.
- You have a great product, great service and great quality
I shot my derringer today. I shot the 410, 000 buck shot & some slugs @ about 15 yds., & actually hit in the black about 3 in. from center. I was @ a long range for a derringer I thought. I changed to the 10mm barrel & was impressed also. It was raining so I didn’t make pictures but will when I get better control, as I’m not use to a “hand cannon”. I will soon order me the 40 s&w which will make me 6 choices.
>>> Love this derringer.

I have had a Bond Arms derringer with various calibers for a few years now. They are fun to shoot and you can always count on them to “go bang”. I recently lost a grip screw and contacted Bond Arms to purchase a new one. They said no purchase necessary and sent me a couple of new ones at no cost. Now that’s good service, I recommend Bond Arms to anyone looking for quality and service unsurpassed in this day and age !

Holding it is as much fun as shooting it. This is how you tell the difference between “stuff” and “American Made!”

I own the Century, Snake-Slayer, and the Ranger. They are by far, the best carry pistols on the market. I owned all of the small .380 pocket pistols and never liked any of them. Then i find a pistol small enough to conceal, chambered in .410. Wow! These pistols feel like a real weapon instead of plastic and they are made in the U.S.A. Thanks Bond Arms!
- They are by far, the best carry pistols on the market.
For years I wanted a derringer, but more as a novelty than a true carry gun. When I discovered the Bond Arms Snake Slayer, I decided to finally buy one. I had always been bouncing back and forth between carrying a Ruger LCP and not having any real faith in it, or a Glock 27 or Ruger SP101 and wishing they were smaller. The Bond Arms really fits the bill. Small enough to carry in all but the hottest weather clothing, big fire power, and reliability….. I was expecting the .410 to be WAY more of a mule than it is, tame enough for new shooters too. (Though the grip is a bit big for small hands) .This little gun is PERFECT. It has become my everyday carry in almost every situation. Thank you.
- This little gun is PERFECT
Just bought a Snake Slayer with 45/410 3 inch barrel. Took it out on Memorial Day to shoot for the first time. Must say that I am quite impressed with the craftsmanship and performance of this Derringer. I shot about 50 Federal #6 shot and about 25 rounds of Federal 225 SWC HP bullets. The gun performed flawlessly and I was quite surprised to learn that the kick was not a factor for me. It is something that I could shoot all day long.
The weapon is extremely well made. Nice heavy stainless steel to handle the loads. Going to order some other caliber barrels and a holster too. Best of all, it is made in America. Great job Bond Arms for a very fine piece of craftsmanship!
- Great job Bond Arms for a very fine piece of craftsmanship!
The first thought when I went to the range was .45 Colt really. Then I fired it and I will be carrying the little power house.

I just wanted to say that I got in touch with Wally in your customer service every misconception about Bond Arms and your customer service department has dissolved! He is the epitome of customer service and a gentleman to boot! He took care of me like I was one of the family and changed my troubled mind for the better!
I can’t say enough good about the way he handled my problem and put my mind to rest with my order. He deserves a raise – and I’m back on the bandwagon for Bond Arms and their people! Keep up the great work! I’ll be back – and so will others from here in Arizona after I show them my Snake Slayer and tell them about your tremendous customer care!
- Tremendous customer care!
Best damn gun I’ve ever owned,and I have them all… built like a tank, dependable and just damn pretty. Love this little/ big gun. Bond arms puts the American back in American made. You guys should be proud of what you produce. I will be buying another Bond firearm.
- Bond arms puts the American back in American made.
The gun I have is numbered 4313. I believe I bought it 1999, maybe 2000, 2001 at a gun show in Houston’s Astro Arena. I don’t remember if it was you working that table but I bought it from THE Bond Arms table. I went into that show looking for a rifle but when I came across your table and saw THIS gun all thoughts of purchasing a rifle left my mind. I have never regretted buying it and never will. It was originally purchased with 9mm barrels but I have since added the star grips and the Century 2000 .45 colt/.410 barrels. I moved to west Texas and believe me, it has come in handy many, many times on those slithery rattlers. I have TX CHL and a .45 Colt Officers Model but find that this derringer is the most comfortable carry weapon and have confidence that it can do the job as a defense weapon if ever needed.
Thank you for designing such an attractive piece of art.

Great pistol! Love the unreal ability to change barrels and grips! Can’t wait for new stuff!!!
- Great pistol!
I always look for good quality & a well built gun when I am Buying one; Bond Arms did a HELL of a Great Job!!!!! on their weapons; Native Texan & Texas Proud ; Also Related to Remington Rand Arms back in the day;
- Bond Arms did a HELL of a Great Job!!!!!
I am female, 5’3, 120lbs and had no problem shooting the Texas defender with 45 LC. The recoil was nothing I couldn’t handle and I must say I have fairly scrawny wrists and hands. It did pack a punch but there was no pain from the recoil. I did change out my grip to the rubber extended one which may have helped. I also followed the tips given by bond arms when shooting. Love my new gun. For all the boys complaining about the recoil.. Omg really?? If I can do it you better be able to.
- Love my new gun
Bob Munden, known perhaps equally as a fierce Fast-Draw competitor who was recognized by Guinness World Records as The Fastest Man with a Gun Who Ever Lived, as an exhibition shooter of the highest order with all kinds of firearms; an entertainer as well as a master gun smith who developed groundbreaking methods of customizing to perfection the beloved .45 caliber single action revolver and other guns, died Monday of heart failure.
American Rifleman: Bond releases its smallest big-bore derringers yet, and gives the Defender a patriotic twist.
By B. Gil Horman
In the late 19th Century, American gunsmith Henry Deringer invented and became famous for some of the most commercially successful pocket guns of all time. His products did so well that his name, eventually misspelled as “derringer,” became synonymous with any pocket-size single- or double-barrel pistol. Perhaps the most famous double-barrel cartridge loading pistol to receive the derringer moniker is the Remington Model 95.
Remington’s compact two-shot over-under pistol was available from 1866 to 1935. It’s the same little gun that’s so often seen jumping out of boots and vest pockets when cowboys and card sharks just can’t get along at saloon card tables in the classic Old West movies. Bond Arms of Granbury, Texas, has taken this venerable 19th century pistol and redesigned it for 21st century concealed carry, resulting in one of the most compact and powerful pocket pistols available…. read more →
Bond Arms makes the world’s best derringers. That is a strong statement, but to anyone who has handled and fired one, it is a true statement. Made of stainless steel, tightly fitted and beautifully finished, the Bond derringers are strong and powerful. I have owned my Snake Slayer for almost three years now, and it has proven to be a handy and reliable weapon. I carry mine often when out in the woods during warm weather, when rattlers, copperheads, and cottonmouths are crawling. Around the farm, these creatures like to lay under equipment and such, and I won’t tolerate them around the area where my grandkids and their wonderful grandpa play and work. Loaded with a payload of 410 number 8 shot, the Bond makes quick work of dispatching venomous snakes. read more →
Derringers have filled the small handgun role for many years, and Bond Arms Ranger II is a modern version of this iconic firearm.
By NRA Staff
There is no arguing that, when it comes to handguns, small is in. And there is no handgun that has been filling that role longer than the Derringer. First popularized by Henry Deringer in the early 19th century, and much copied since, in modern times the form is perhaps best represented by Bond Arms out of Granbury, Texas. The Bond Arms Ranger II exemplifies the later two-barrel style, and this single-action, break-open pistol is chambered to fire 2 1/2- or 3-inch .410-bore shotshells, as well as .45 Colt and .45 Schofield. read more →
