Known for its tank-like stainless-steel construction and diversity of interchangeable caliber-conversion barrels, the catalog of Bond Arms double-barrel pistols and accessory barrels will grow to include 6" long options this year. The model shown here, tentatively named "The Texan," features an elongated .45 Colt/.410 barrel with the words "Think Twice Before You Mess With Texas" engraved along the right side. The Texan will feature with an extended custom hardwood grip. 

Whenever Bond Arms launches a new barrel length, customers are eager to know when the accessory barrels will be available an in which calibers. A stand alone 6" .45 Colt/.410 barrel will be made available first and should start shipping soon. Additional planned calibers for the 6" include .357 Magnum, 10 mm and .45 ACP. There are rumors that the company is considering resurrecting the long-lost .44 Mag. option in this barrel length because it provides enough forward weight to keep felt recoil to a manageable level. MSRP: TBA. For more, visit bondarms.com.
