Bond Arms announced their new aluminum frame derringer, the Stinger, earlier this year. It’s Bond’s slimmest lightest gun, perfect for concealed carry and we had a chance to play with one at NRA on Saturday.
The Stinger is about half the width and just over half the weight of Bond’s popular standard size derringers.
The aluminum Stinger weighs 12 oz. while Bond’s steel Texas Defender is 20 oz.
It’s also considerably thinner. I slipped one in my pocket and it just disappeared.
The Stinger is available in 9mm or .380 ACP for $379 and is shipping now. Bond also plans a steel frame version that will be just as thin, but 4 oz. heavier, while costing only $279. The steel Stinger should hit stores in the fourth quarter.
