The Bond Arms® Rowdy XL is a fresh take on a proven design

The Rowdy was an exciting release from Bond Arms® in 2022 and has quickly become a staple in the brand’s lineup. Bond continues to develop the design in a new, modernized version called the Rowdy XL. New for 2023, the Rowdy XL features a larger size, a more user-friendly design, and all the power one could ask for in a double-barreled pistol.

The Rowdy XL is a simple design packed with features and potential uses. Constructed with rugged, upgraded construction, the Rowdy XL is sure to perform and deliver in high-stress environments as well as at the range. Coming in 410/45 Colt, it’s a perfect companion pistol or standalone defense tool.

The 3.5-inch barrel has been beefed up compared to the original Rowdy, though the larger design won’t sacrifice exceptional accuracy. The overall finish is slightly off and does not have a hand polished finish. This not only reduces glare, but also saves production costs. These savings therefore trickle down to the consumer!

The most drastic change to the overall design is the addition of a B6 grip. It’s a thicker grip for more hand contact and an extended grip placement for full finger placement. The B6 not only helps mitigate recoil through the rubber construction, but is a durable material suitable for a wide range of environments.

As with most Bond offerings, the barrel has two chambers, one above and one below. Overall, it measures 5.75 inches and weighs 22 ounces. It is not a lightweight pistol, and because of this, it is excellent at handling the full power of a standard Colt 410 and 45 round. Bond makes sure the shooter knows they are ready to fire with a reliable 7lb trigger, but protected by the integrated trigger guard. If the 410/45Colt isn’t the best choice for your target, swap the barrel with Bond’s ability to change barrels and chambers quickly and efficiently.

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas, and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the best in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the Texas Armory name, the company was 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 reliable modern pistol. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers and the entire pistol is constructed entirely of stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that is strong and durable.
