Snake Slayer

The Bond Arms Snake Slayer is a single-action pocket pistol chambered in .45 Colt or .410. Bond Arms branched out of Texas Armory in 1995 and is now a premier manufacturer of Derringers.

Bond Arms’ Derringer’s have a flat, over-under 2-barrel design and are hammer fired. The hammer alternates between barrels every time it’s cocked back. Load the Derringer by unlocking the barrels, flipping them up and around, and then inserting cartridges into the empty barrels.

The Snake Slayer is the most popular Bond Arms Derringer and it is available with either a 4.5” or 3.5” barrel with Rosewood grips and a trigger guard.

Features include removable barrels, so the caliber can be changed, a rebounding hammer where, Bond Arms says, the hammer automatically rebounds to a blocked position, off of the firing pins, and the trigger sets off the action with a 6- to 7.5-pound pull.

Bond Arms recommends the Snake Slayer for concealed carry.
