Bond Arms Rough Series: Company’s Most Affordable Guns Are as Tough as Their Name

 

At the request of their customers, the Texas manufacturer of high-end, compact handguns rolls out their most affordable models yet.

Granbury, TX (June 25, 2019) – Bond Arms®, located in the small town of Granbury in the heart of Texas, is known for making some of the finest, compact handguns available today. They are a favorite among collectors, concealed carry practitioners and anyone who appreciates a superiorly made firearm. But to deliver such quality also costs and over time, the company has been approached by fans who have asked if there was any way to make a more affordable Bond Arms® handgun. Never ones to disappoint, the team at Bond Arms went to work, and their answer to the request is the new Rough Series handguns featuring two models-the Roughneck™ and the Rough N Rowdy™.

The Roughneck™ is a single-action double barrel 9mm pistol with a stainless-steel finish and black rubber grips. It comes with fixed sites and the same quality push-button cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer used in their high-end models. The trigger guard is removable.

The Rough N Rowdy™ is a single-action double barrel pistol chambered for .45 Colt and 2½-inch .410 shells. It features a stainless-steel finish, black rubber grips and fixed sites along with the same push-button cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer. The trigger guard is also removable. Interchangeable barrels are available for both models.

The Roughneck™ retails for $269 and the Rough N Rowdy™ has an MSRP of $299, both are by far the lowest price models in the Bond Arms® family of handguns despite being manufactured with the same quality materials and components that are used in their highest end models. So how did they do it?

Bond Arms® engineers intensively reviewed the processes used to build their firearms detail by detail. Their goal was to determine the minimum amount of finishing needed to create a handgun in order to take less time to manufacture and thus less costly to create. Of course, a rougher finish was inevitable. On a high-end firearm, much of the cost comes from the time spent finishing the gun-sanding out swirly marks and rough areas inherent in the machining process and hiding seams where parts fit together such as where the metal frame joins the trigger guard. The one thing the handguns still needed to do, however, was they had to have the same safe, reliable operation all Bond Arms® handguns are known for, and they still had to be comfortable to shoot.

“The rough finish adds quite a cool factor to the Roughneck™ and the Rough N Rowdy™,” says Dylan Hunsucker, spokesman for Bond Arms®. “We do minimal clean-up and deburr to ensure there are no sharp edges, and then we bead blast the finish. There is no sanding and polishing of the frame, which takes enormous amounts of time and adds to the cost of our higher-end firearms. The final product is that you can see the parting lines in the frame and trigger guard as well as some of the tool marks on the barrels and casting imperfections in the frame. It gives each one its own unique rough and tumble look.”

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the finest in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the name Texas Armory, the company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 with the idea that the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer could be converted from an Old West anachronism into a modern & reliable handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers & the entire handgun is constructed entirely from stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that’s both strong and durable.
