One incredibly top notch piece of USA craftsmanship! This gun looks BAD just lying there. It's solid like a rock. This Break Action Derringer will be a welcome addition to any collection or home. Great as a bedside protector, loaded with 3" .410 shells. I'd like to keep it handy with 00 or 0 Buck, so far I've only found 000 Buck and of course shot from 4 to 8.5. With all the Taurus Judges being sold, it's hard to find .410 in a lot of places.

This a Solid piece, packs quite a bit of weight 23.5 oz. Recoil is really quite subtle shooting 250g .45C LN ammo. With the 2 1/2 in. .410 it's not bad at all; the 3" shells make you take notice somewhat. It will take some getting used to, as far as aiming goes. I have shot 20 rounds of .45C and have come within 1 1/2 inches of my aim point at 15 feet. Each barrel is a little different of course. I have better luck with the bottom barrel so far. I will do an update review after I have run about 100 or more rounds through it. Cleaning?, does it get any easier than this? I doubt it.

Unlike most Derringers and even some the smaller Bond Arms ones - this one comes with a removable trigger guard. I personally like it on. The Snake Slayer models and Ranger also have extended grips versus the other Bond Arms models.

Much more comfortable. To increase versatility you can purchase a variety of barrel/caliber sizes; from .22LR on up to the Monster I have. Plan on getting the .22LR (cheap to shoot) and possibly the .38Spcl/.357Mag as well. If and when I do, I will submit a review update.
