Those interested in modern derringers typically look at Bond Arms. This is true whether folks are interested in collecting or carrying these interesting little guns. However, some fans have approached the company about a more affordable model. The company responded with two derringers in the Bond Arms Rough series.

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 push-button cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer used in other models.

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.

Both models also feature a removable trigger guard, as well as interchangeable barrels. To make these derringers more affordable, the company lowered the amount of finish work. It takes a lot of time to sand out swirly marks and rough areas inherent in the machining process. Reducing the process needed reduces the costs, while creating a different type of finish.

“The rough finish adds quite a cool factor to the Roughneck and the Rough N Rowdy,” said Dylan Hunsucker, Bond Arms spokesman. “We do minimal clean-up and deburr to ensure there are no sharp edges, and then we bead blast the finish. 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.”
