As an individual who carries a concealed weapon, having a back-up piece is always a good thing, like the old saying goes- “it’s better to be safe than sorry”. The Bond Arms Backup seems to fit the bill, as a nice little back-up piece that won’t let you down when you need it the most.
About the Bond ARMS backup 45:
Out of the box, the Backup 45 is a beauty. The bead blasted gray 2-1/2” barrel is perfected mated to the black crinkle coated chassis. Weighing in at ~19 oz, it outweighs the basic alloy S&W J-frame by ~ 4 oz, while being ~ 4 oz lighter than a steel J-frame.
Though the barrel is a similar length to a J-frame, the Backup lacks a cylinder, thus its overall profile is noticeably shorter than the J. Also worth noting, the Backup 45 is built like a Ruger Super Redhawk, and feels like a chunk of steel crafted on an anvil.
The 19 oz weight is not light, and is actually somewhat heavy for a handgun of its dimensions. But when it comes to delivering that ‘punch’, every once counts.
Designed for easy concealment when you need it, our Backup features a textured frame and bead-blasted anti-glare barrel designed to fire powerful .45 ACP rounds with its 2.5″ barrel.
