Anybody have a bond arms 357mag derringer ? Pros , Cons......
Here is a good review:
It's not for a .357mag one though...
I've never owned one, but they seem like great quality guns from those I've handled.
I have a Bond Arms Century 2000 in .45LC/.410
It is top notch quality all the way.
, James Bond?
I do. Very well made solid chunk of stainless steel.
I only run it with snake shot.
Bond arms makes the very best derringers. They arent small, might as well carry a two inch .357 revolver.
For a simple gun to dispatch snakes, the .410 model has its place.
I heard somewhere that the magnums were breaking people's fingers, or thumb, or something crazy like that.
Don't ask me how...
I've been told that people usually only get the .38 barrels for them. If you want to use .38 special rat shot, you need the .357 chamber because the rat shot uses a longer case.
Would be a bit uncomfortable with a full .357 magnum in such a tiny gun.
Correct on the .357 barrel for CCI pellet rounds.
Have Bond 10mm.
I was seriously thinking about a Bond in .45ACP. I was set on it for pocket carry until I put one in my pocket. It is too heavy for a two shot gun. It weighs the same as my 325PD that holds 6 rounds. My PM9 loaded weighs the same as the Bond empty. I decided it wasn't my cup of tea.
I have a 45 ACP Texas Defender. It is a well built pistol.
I bought one a few years back for Cowboy Action Shooting side matches, and now have barrels in .22LR, .38/.357, .44 spl, .44-40, and .45 Colt. Now if they would only make a .38-40 barrel...
J-bar how is the kick on that 357 ??
I have 357/38 'American Derringer' it seems like the same type/quality. It's well built & I actually used it to ward off some stray dogs in GA years ago. The situation didn't call for shooting the dogs. Anyway, it's well made & all but I think a nice "J" frame is more useful. I have not shot it in years & shot 38s just about all the time anyway.
All I've ever shot through it are Cowboy Action loads, but I'd think full power loads would be a handful.
