Bond Arms recently announced its newest handgun model, aptly-named, the Texan. While the company is long-known for making ultra-light and highly concealable handguns, the Texan is something different altogether. The 6-inch barreled hand cannon is the company’s largest overall pistol to date.
The Texan features two barrels: One chambered for .45 Long Colt and the other for 3-inch .410 shells. The 6-inch double barrels deliver not only impressive accuracy and increased velocity over shorter barreled models, but also looks impressive with a stainless steel finish handsomely appointed with an extended rosewood grip, according to Bond Arms. Etched into the grip is an attractive outline of the state of Texas emblazoned with a star over it and crisscrossing snakes at the bottom.
Other key features include Bond Arms’ retracting firing pins and cross-bolt safety, spring-loaded and cammed locking lever, and a full trigger guard. The gun features a front blade and fixed rear sight. The sights, along with the longer sighting plane provided by the 6-inch barrels, makes aiming easy and getting back on target for a follow-up shot a cinch.
Like all Bond Arms handguns, the barrels of the Texan are interchangeable to allow for the installation of shorter barrels or chambering for different calibers. The overall length of the handgun is 8.125 inches, and the overall weight is 27 ounces. Finally, the Texan retails for $700.
“With its longer barrels and stylish design, this is the Bond Arms handgun deserving of the title the Texan. All of our firearms are made right here in Texas; it’s something we take a lot of pride in,” says Dylan Hunsucker, spokesman for Bond Arms.
