New Bond Bullpup Announcement:

American Rifleman of February 11th, 2016 said:
"Bond Arms is taking a big step in a new direction by offering a sub-compact semi-automatic concealed-carry pistol dubbed the Bond Bullpup. Based on the Boberg Arms XR9-S, the Bullpup provides a variety of uncommon features designed to keep the pistol small and lightweight while reducing felt recoil. This 9 mm Luger +P pistol is just 5.1" long, 4.2" tall and 0.96" wide. It weighs just 17.5 ozs. with a seven-round magazine. The rear-feeding magazine rests directly below the rotating barrel’s chamber allowing for a longer barrel without the need for a longer slide. The stainless steel slide is topped with dovetailed three-dot sights. The 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum frame features a round trigger guard and hardwood grips."
 
Well that's great news so far - It's coming perhaps late 2016!
 
If you 'Youtube' 2016 SHOT Show Bond Arms Bullpup 9mm Pistol you will see Bond spokesman "Garrett" show their version of the Boberg - and "Garrett" says that they don't have a price for their new gun yet but they are trying to get it out for less $$ than it cost from Boberg - and that they hope to have it all sorted by "summer 2016"
 
Fingers crossed eh - but not behind the slide of your pistol .. (OUCH!). I do hope that they'll still produce the 4 inch barrel version
