The Rowdy XL from Bond Arms, a New Take on a Proven Design

Granbury, TX – 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 into a new and modernized version called the Rowdy XL. New for 2023, the Rowdy XL features a bigger size, a more user-friendly design, and all the power one could ask for in a double-barrel handgun.

The Rowdy XL is a straightforward design full of features and potential uses. Made from sturdy construction and given an uplift, the Rowdy XL is sure to perform and deliver in both high-stress environments and on the range. Coming in 410/45 Colt, it’s a perfect companion pistol or stand-alone defense tool.

The 3.5 in. barrel has been beefed up compared to the original Rowdy, although the larger design won’t sacrifice exceptional accuracy. The overall finish is muted slightly and does not have a hand-polished finish. Not only does this reduce glare, it also saves on production costs. These savings are therefore trickled down to the consumer!

The most drastic change in the overall design is the addition of a B6 grip. It’s a plumper grip for more hand contact and an extended grip placement for full finger placement. Not only does the B6 assist in mitigating recoil via the rubberized construction, it’s a durable material suitable for a broad range of environments.

As with most of the offerings from Bond, the barrel has two chambers, one above and one below. Overall, it’s 5.75 in. while weighing in at a full 22 oz. It’s not a lightweight pistol, and because of this, it’s excellent at handling the full power of a 410 and standard 45 Colt round. Bond ensures the shooter knows they’re ready to shoot with a reliable 7 lb trigger pull, yet protected by the integrated trigger guard. If the 410/45Colt isn’t the best option for the target, change the barrel with Bond’s ability to change barrels and chamberings quickly and efficiently!

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.
