Bond Arms Rough Series Double-Barrel Line Now Includes the Grizzly

Handguns in the Bond Arms Rough Series are bead-blasted for a rough finish and an attractive price. Customers can choose from the 9mm Roughneck, the .45 Colt Rough N Rowdy and now the .45 Long Colt Grizzly with grizzly engraving and holster artwork.

Bond Arms is known for its outstanding fit and finish on every gun they build. To create a more affordable option for budget-conscious customers without compromising features, Bond Arms trimmed down its finishing process. The Rough Series was born and included the Roughneck, Rowdy, and the newest addition, the Grizzly double-barrel guns. The result is a handgun with the same outstanding qualities inherent in every Bond Arms’ gun without all the frills.

Each Rough Series gun undergoes a quick clean-up and deburring to knock off the sharp edges. After the initial treatment, guns are bead blasted, giving them a rough finish. The parting lines in the metal frame and trigger guard add to the cool factor. Swirly tool marks on the barrels and tiny casting imperfections and rough areas add a unique individual character to these handguns. Built-in a fraction of the time compared to standard production models, the reduced labor cost of the Rough Series guns translates into huge savings for the customer.

The Rough Series Handguns

Bond Rough Series handguns include premium features found in all their double-barreled guns, like stainless-steel barrels and frames, cross-bolt safety, retracting firing pins, spring-loaded cam-lock lever and rebounding hammer. Rough Series guns use the same grade of stainless steel as all production models.

The Roughneck is a new type of Bond Arms’ gun. It’s built with a 2.5-inch barrel, chambered for 9mm, 357/38 or 45ACP, and features a blade front sight and fixed rear sight. The compact handgun uses a textured rubber grip. The Roughneck works best with smooth-lined holsters. $269


At 5 inches long, the Rowdy is the ‘big brother’ in the line, chambered for the powerful .45 Long Colt, and 2 1⁄2-inch .410-bore shotshells. A blade front sight and fixed rear sight mount directly on its 3-inch barrels. A smooth-lined holster works best. $299


The Grizzly features several upgrades from its Rowdy cousin. Vibrant rosewood grips engraved with grizzly bear artwork, the Bond Arms name and a checkered panel, add texture and character. The pistol includes a matching leather holster embossed with a grizzly bear. Its 3-inch barrels are chambered in .45 Long Colt, and 2 1⁄2-inch .410-bore shotshells. $377

The Bond Arms Rough Series are compact and rugged handguns built with the same quality parts and materials as the other Bond Arms production models. The rough finish gives each pistol its unique charm.
