bond arms bullpup 9
Bond BullPup 9. The Bond Arms Bullpup started out life as the Boberg XR9. TTAG reviewed Boberg’s ballistic bauble back in 2012. We were not impressed. The author’s jam-o-matic experience would soon be shared by Boberg customers. While the design was interesting, the XR9 wasn’t ready for prime time. Bond Arms makes the world’s best derringers. Gordon’s guns are tanks, boasting solid design, world class machining and extreme product testing. Not to mention Texas-style go-the-extra-mile-for-a-smile customer service. None of which applied to the Boberg XR9 or its founder’s customer relations.
A bullpup rifle is shorter than a standard carbine and typically features a magazine behind the firing grip. The Bond Arms pistol earns the moniker because the pistol’s magazine is below the chamber rather than behind it. The magazine uses a sheet-metal body and magazine follower but otherwise is very different from other pistol magazines. Loading the magazine is an easy task, although the lack of a magazine follower gives one pause. The magazine is open at the rear, and the body is closed at the front. It feeds from the rear, not the front.
The highly-developed Bond Arms Bullpup 9mm is delivered with a special coating on the barrel and locking block that eliminates the need for grease.Some pistols will go only a few hundred rounds without adding lubrication, this is the nature of the beast.The specialty coating on the Bullpup 9mm allows it go to much further between cleaning and greasing than the original Boberg design.Once the pistol is proofed with Bond Arms recommended loads, you may experiment with a loading that you prefer.
