For immediate release – from Bond Arms
You have probably noticed that there hasn’t really been much in the way of firearms on Knife & Gear Society. This isn’t because I don’t like firearms, in fact I really like firearms. I just always figured that there are other sites that are dedicated to them and have just deferred to them. But I have to admit, when I saw the Bond Arms Rough Series, I figured, why not? Don’t be surprised to see more firearms related content in the future. Again, because, why not?
Bond Arms are known for a high level of fit and finish, which comes at a price. The Rough Series addresses this by trimming down the finishing process. The latest cost friendly Rough Series from Bond Arms features the Roughneck, Rowdy and latest addition, the Grizzly.
The Rough Series feature the same high quality you can expect from Bond Arms, minus the frills. Each gun in the series undergoes a quick clean-up and deburring to knock off the sharp edges. Following the clean-up each gun is bead blasted to give them a rough finish. The faster production of the Rough Series brings down the cost for the average buyer, without sacrificing the quality.
Although each pistol in the Bond Arms Rough Series is different in their own rights, they do share some similarities. They all feature stainless-steel barrels and frames, cross-bolt safety, retracting firing pins, spring-loaded cam-lock lever and rebounding hammer.
The Roughneck has a 2.5-inch barrel and is chambered in your choice of 9mm, 357/38 or 45ACP. It features a blade front sight and fixed rear site. The textured rubber grip ensures a solid purchase on the gun while firing.
The ‘big brother’ of the series is the Rough N’ Rowdy, coming in at 5 inches long. You can select between .45 Long Colt and 2.5-inch .410 bore shotshells. Like the Roughneck, the Rough N’ Rowdy features a blade front sight and fixed rear sight, atop the 3-inch barrel. The Rough N’ Rowdy also includes textured rubber grips for retention.
Adding their typical level of finish, the Grizzly is basically an upgraded Rough N’ Rowdy. Like the Rough N’ Rowdy, the Grizzly is chambered in your choice of .45 Long Colt and 2.5-inch .410 bore shotshells. The Grizzly features rosewood grips engraved with a grizzly bear, Bond Arms name and checkered panel, providing texture and character. Unlike the other models, the Grizzly comes with a matching leather holster embossed with a grizzly bear.
I’ll be honest, at this point, I am just trying to figure out which one I want to buy. I love my little North American Arms .22Mag, but these are just so cool, and the prices are on point. If you try to reach me and I’m not home, check the gun store. K&G
