Bond Arms

A company, originally organized under the name Texas Armory and incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995, had the idea to convert the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer from an Old West anachronism into a modern defensive handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to fire modern calibers safely. The beefed-up double barrels and frames are constructed completely from stainless steel and shaped with modern manufacturing processes.

Bond Arms is also one of a few manufacturers that still builds exclusively in the U.S. and uses American-made parts for all their handguns, grips, and holsters.

The Stinger RS .22 LR

Following up on the excitement generated when they released the Stinger RS, Bond Arms proudly presents the Stinger RS 22LR.

This Stinger has all features of the original Stinger RS but is now offered in .22LR. The standard features include a rebounding hammer, a 3″ stainless steel double barrel and frame, retracting firing pins, an integrated trigger guard, a Cross Bolt Safety, and slim nylon grips.

The new Stinger RS comes in at the low price of $279. Bond Arms was able to achieve this great price by using the Rough & Tumble finish from the Rough Series of pistols. Hand finishing and polishing takes time & money. By eliminating some of these time-consuming processes, you get the same outstanding Bond Arms quality at a better price.
