Bond Arms’ biggest handgun model is a sure way to kick your summer off right with plenty of shooting fun.
Granbury, TX - The folks at Bond Arms® may be known for making some of the most ultra-compact handguns available for concealed carry, but what happens when they add a little size to one of their models? You get a firearm that promises shooting fun as big as all Texas. With that in mind, the Bond Arms® Texan™ with its 6-inch barrel is easily the company’s largest model handgun and one of the most accurate of the bunch.
The Texan’s two barrels are chambered for .45 Long Colt, as well as 3-inch .410 shells. The 6-inch double barrels deliver not only impressive accuracy and increased velocity over shorter barreled models, but also looks impressive with a stainless steel finish handsomely appointed with an extended rosewood grip. Etched into the grip is an attractive outline of the state of Texas emblazoned with a star over it and crisscrossing snakes at the bottom.
Other key features include Bond Arms’ retracting firing pins and cross-bolt safety, spring-loaded and cammed locking lever, and a full trigger guard. The gun is topped with a front blade and fixed rear sight. The sights, along with the longer sighting plane provided by the 6-inch barrels, makes aiming easy and getting back on target for a follow-up shot a cinch.
Like all Bond Arms handguns, the barrels of the Texan are interchangeable to allow for the installation of shorter barrels or chambering for different calibers. The overall length of the handgun is 8.125 inches, and the overall weight is 27 ounces. The Texan retails for $700.
“With its longer barrels and stylish design, this is the Bond Arms handgun deserving of the title the Texan. All of our firearms are made right here in Texas; it’s something we take a lot of pride in,” says Dylan Hunsucker, spokesman for Bond Arms.

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.
