I like the Snakeslayer although it is in no way compatible with Freedom Arms. Mine came missing a screw. The front strap was milled unevenly so there is a uneven gap visible with the grip. Most odd, the barrel or frame seems made with sloppy tolerances. The barrel does not sit on the frame centered on any axis. There is a large gap on the left side when viewed from top or front. The over/under is not directly over and under. The barrels point about 10 degrees to the right of the frame centerline. These are all very obvious things you would expect QA or basically anyone to notice prior to shipping. Also came extremely hard to open/close, probably as a result. The quality of the materials is very good, the workmanship not so much. During testing we found #6 good for the snake/bunny/frog role; PDX-1 2.5" and 3.5" not really that impressive on medium/hard media but looks great on gelatin; Hornady Critical Defense pretty impressive and #000 very good all around. .45 Colt rounds controllable out to 20 yards or so. I would carry one #000 and one .45 handload. All shotshells started producing flyers outside 3m which is a major consideration for the ethical defensive shooter. An interesting niche item and fun to mess around with, very small and easy to carry. I'll probably trade it for something else.

Not much one can add about Bond Arms quality. It is outstanding! These derringers have excellent fit and finish, and they are built like battle ships. Those double .45 bores remind me of the massive sixteen inch guns on said battle ships. I tend to think of these gems as "pocket Howitzers." My wife loves hers and has much more confidence grabbing it to investigate noises in the night than her .38 Airweight. This was my first internet firearms purchase, and Bud's made it a pleasant experience. If and when the need again arises, Bud's will be my first stop.

My second purchase from Bud's and I have to say well done! Bond Arms makes a great reliable product. This pistol is small, compact, yet on the heavy side for good reason. Great deal and fast shipping.

An excellent example of American engineering. I love it. Built like a tank, and exceeds all expectations I had. Put all sorts of .410 through it, from 8 to 000, as well as 45 Colt, with great results. The 45 Colt was amazingly accurate. She does kick a bit (my wife shot it once, and no more), but 3 inch .410 will do that. The recoil is completely different for this beast. It does its job exceptionally well. I had previously read that the trigger pull was difficult and awkward. I guess mine is an exception, because it was easy and smooth out of the box. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and think it was worth every penny. This Snake Slayer fits my hand like a glove.

I was very excited to pick this beauty up. Here are my thoughts after I did: * Excellent machining on this firearm.....fit and function is perfect! * Incredibly beautiful finish on this thing....flawless from the manufacturer! * An incredibly hefty handful...a very stout weapon in your hand. * Grips are beautiful. Very satisfied! Bond Arms does excellent work, and obviously cares about the product they are putting out in the market place!!! FIVE STARS
