NRA Gun of the Week: Bond Arms BullPup9

In 2015, Bond Arms acquired the patents and rights to the XR9-S pistol—a unique design originally from Boberg Arms that utilized a reverse-feed system, whereby fresh cartridges were stripped rearward from a magazine to be fed into the slide. Where Boberg had failed to bring a reliable production model to market, Bond Arms was able to refine the design and offer a fully functional, stylish and unique semi-automatic pistol, known now as the Bond Arms BullPup9. As with bullpup-style longarms, the BullPup9’s action is actually behind its trigger group, and this unusual arrangement allows the compact pistol to possess a 3.35” barrel, despite its mere 5.1” overall length. For more on this interesting new gun, watch this week's NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen.
