Bond Arms Budget-Friendly Rough Series In .22 LR
Bond Arms Budget-Friendly Rough Series In .22 LR ,After a four-year hiatus, Bond Arms is bringing back its all-stainless steel pistols chambered for the much loved .22 LR cartridge. Instead of leading the charge with the company’s high-polished double-barrels, Bond is expanding its budget-friendly Rough Series.
The brand new 2.5″ barrel Rawhide (left) is the first member of the Rough Series to feature the slightly shorter Cowboy standard-size frame that omits the removable trigger guard. This new model retails at a suggested price of $269. There’s also a 3″ barrel Stinger RS (right) is based on the slimmed-down Stinger pistol that launched in 2021. The RS version features a rough-finish stainless steel frame instead of an anodized aluminum frame. This modification increases the pistol’s weight by about 4 ozs. but shaves $120 of the suggested retail price. Both of these .22s have removable barrels that can be swapped out for other caliber-conversion barrels within their frame category. These are the least-expensive Bond Arms models yet.
