Bond Arms’ New Budget-Friendly Version of the Snake Slayer – The Rowdy XL.


Introducing the Bond Arms® Rowdy XL, making a bold entrance into 2024 with a winning combination of ambitious features and an affordable price point. This remarkable firearm offers exceptional quality and performance, ensuring that gun enthusiasts can experience top-tier capabilities without breaking the bank.

Chambered in .45 Colt/.410, the Rowdy XL seamlessly blends quality with comfort. The enhanced 3.5-inch barrel, compared to the original Rowdy, maintains exceptional accuracy. Following Bond’s tradition, the barrel features two chambers in typical derringer fashion, one above and one below. The overall length is 6 inches, weighing a solid 22 ounces.

The Rowdy XL sets itself apart with its extended grip, meticulously crafted from B6 resin, seamlessly integrating with the robust stainless steel frame. The choice of a ‘blasted’ finish for both the barrel and frame, as opposed to a polished sheen, streamlines production time and reduces costs. This benefit is directly reflected in the consumer-friendly pricing. Priced nearly $250 lower than comparable alternatives, the Rowdy XL delivers exceptional quality and makes a compelling case for an affordable yet high-performance choice in the firearms market.

Bond Arms ensures a distinctive shooting experience with a 7-pound trigger pull, protected by the integrated trigger guard. For those not inclined towards the .45 Colt/.410, Bond Arms offers the flexibility to change barrels and chamberings quickly. Barrels are available for separate purchase on Bond’s website. Reloading is simplified with the left-hand side action release lever, accompanied by a case extractor for swift reloads.

The Rowdy XL delivers substantial cost savings, making it a revolutionary yet cost-effective firearm option for the range and carry. With its low cost, exceptional quality, and caliber-changing capability, the Rowdy XL stands out in the world of firearms.

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas, and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the finest in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the name Texas Armory, the company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 with the idea that the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer could be converted from an Old West anachronism into a modern & reliable handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers & the entire handgun is constructed entirely from stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that’s both strong and durable.
