The "original" Boberg had a plastic frame / grip i think. This one looks like it will be 100% SS. A nice upgrade . . . .The price sounds a bit too high for me.
However the derringers they build are incredibly tank like.
So I will look forward to seeing these once released.
That said I really don't have a desire for one at this time.
But never say never right?
Range report . . . . ?
ERed, that one definitely qualifies for inclusion in the most unusual firearm thread.I'll have to write something up. I've owned it for a few years. All Bobergs are all steel, just different finishes. Mine is called "platinum". There is a two tone and all black DLC finish. DLC being the most expensive. It would have been my choice but was unavailable at the time. Double action only with a flat hammer resembling a flap on the rear. Short story, it shoots great and is accurate for being so small. Can be finicky with ammo. Doesn't like weak ammo. Has worked with all of the defense loads I've tried. The slide does not lock back on an empty mag due to the design. There is no follower in the mag. The rounds and mag never have contact with bottom of slide as they are pulled backward, a flap moves and as they go forward are slid up the flap to the chamber.
Mostly mimicking the comments if the original article I think.I never paid much attention to Bond Arms because I don't like derringers, this is quite a step up in manufacturing complexity in comparison, hopefully the move works out for them.
I read through all of the comments on the page linked above and I'm amazed at the number of people complaining about the price. Apparently most of them don't know anything about the Boberg history of the design and clearly they have never ventured into the world of 1911s, I was numbed to $1000 many pistols ago.:roflmaro:
