Texas-based Bond Arms has announced it is adding a pair of new rimfire double-barreled pistols to the catalog for 2023.
The new models, both in Bond's familiar style of over/under single-action derringer, sport rebounding hammers and are constructed with stainless steel barrels and frames. The new guns include the 3-inch barreled Stinger RS with an integrated trigger guard and the more compact 2.5-inch Cowboy-frame (no trigger guard) Rawhide. Both have fixed sights, a two-shot capacity, and manual cross-bolt safeties.
Fully compatible with all of Bond's "Hand-Cannon" series accessory barrels, the Rawhide runs thin nylon grips, uses a 2.5-inch barrel for a 4.5-inch overall length, and weighs 21 ounces.
The Bond Arms Stinger RS has all the same features as the original Stinger-- which was offered in 9mm, .380 ACP, and .38 Special-- but it is being offered in a .22LR caliber. Unlike the Stinger 22, which used a lightweight alloy frame to keep in the 14-ounce range with a 3-inch barrel, the new Stinger RS is steel, bringing the weight up to 16 ounces. The overall length is 5 inches.
The MSRP on both new Bond Arms .22s is $269-- the company's least expensive pistols.
