Bond Arms trigger?

I own a 9mm Roughneck, I am having a hard time getting used to the trigger. After about 10 rounds it did seem that I was finding it easier to pull but still hurt my finger trying to pull it. I was even pulling to the point my shots were going off target. Will it get easier? If not I may have found the one gun that I can't own, if it will then I will try pocket carry soon with the warm weather. thanks

I owned a derringer some years ago. I don't believe it was a Bond but it had a unbelievable heavy trigger, and I think the vast majority of these gun have heavy triggers and I think it is a safety feature. Don't expect much if any decrease in the trigger pull. I hope you it works out for you.

I am told that you need to pull the trigger down-ish rather than straight back on these.
I don't own one. If I did, I would do a trigger job on it.

Thanks Y'all, I believe I will sell the two I have and suffer the loss in money but gain the knowledge to never own another. I have tried and my finger strength just won't let me do it well. Now to figure what they can be sold for and I know I will lose on them, one has never been fired and never will by me. Maybe I can sell both for enough to get a Wrangler and some ammo. Thanks everyone.

A buddy of mine bought one new on sale. He called me complaining of trigger. I very carefully stoned it. Not sear surface, I was pretty sure he try to send it back and didn’t want to void any guarantees. It didn’t get much better, he took it back to store and they told him they all have heavy triggers. He cut out the middle man and dealt it off at show, at a loss.

I can't understand the allure of the Bond derringers. They are as big as, and heavier than a S&W "J" frame or one of the micro 9mms.

I own a BA Snakeslayer - never understood all the complaints about the trigger until I replaced the standard grips with the short grips - then the trigger was hard to pull. I put the longer grips back on no problems pulling the trigger - replace your roughneck grips with longer ones.

Only one Derringer ever interested me, but I was scared to shoot it. 375 H&H. I was more scared I would get my eyebrows singed than of the recoil. There was only about 1" of barrel past the end of the bullet. I am sure it puked 90% of it's powder.

I decided after reading some more and my wife wanting me to keep them, to take them apart give them a good deep cleaning and smooth any rougher than normal spots. I can't describe the difference in words, while still a back downward pull, it is a much easier or I guess a smoother pull. Looks like I will be keeping them, I made a deal with the wife too, since she thinks they are cute that one is now hers. She shoots it better than I do and looks like the Bond's are gonna stay in our house. She said she may use hers in a pocket holster as backup to her Ruger EC9s, it's hers so as long as she's happy I am happy. I will however buy some larger grips and should make them even better. Thanks everyone.
