Custom Handguns Introduced
BOND ARMS LAUNCHES TWO NEW HANDGUNS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
The Brown Bear and Big Bear models will be in stores in the coming weeks
GRANBURY, TX, October 15, 2014—For the first time ever, Californians will be able to purchase the unique, Derringer-style Bond Arms pistols from a local dealer. Re-tooled versions of the company’s popular USA Defender, Big Bear and Brown Bear models were designed specifically to be sold in California. The handguns are now shipping and will be available in stores, such as Turner’s Outdoorsman, in the coming weeks.
“California has a robust outdoor market and we’ve worked very hard to have our products available in this state,” says Bond Arms president Gordon Bond. “We’ve been receiving requests from people in California for years, and now they’ll finally be able to experience a Bond firearm. Right now two models, the Big Bear and Brown Bear, are available, but we’re in the process of getting approval for our signature, interchangeable barrels as well.”
Both models have a .45 Colt cartridge and have an MSRP of $524, which includes a holster. The two guns are similar, but have their own distinct style, with the Brown Bear sporting an engraved California bear on the wood grip, and the Big Bear featuring a black, rubberized grip and galvanized gray barrel.
Bond Arms has become very well known in the outdoor industry for modifying the classic Derringer-style handguns with improved technology and craftsmanship.
