How many XR45's were made to date? I saw the video from Bond Arms about the Bond Bullpup and no word on the continuation of the XR45.

No answer for your question, but I'm having a hard time finding one. I wish I had stumbled on to the brand sooner. I stopped by the only official dealer in my state to see if they had anything, they said some guy came in about a month ago and bought out all the Boberg's, 2-9's and 1-45. I suspect the buyer may be hoarding. :)

I saw the same video, when asked about the .45 he said "not at this time". The 9 should be available in 4 months for purchase. I've decided to go with it and will pre-order at the first opportunity. I'd prefer the .45 but I'm not waiting that long. I really like the look of the rosewood grips and it sounds like they want to get the price down below 1K. Both pluses, provided the rest of it is the exact same.

Please keep an eye on Gunbroker as they have been showing up there from time to time. I just looked and there were no XR45 being sold on Gunbroker. I am leary about Armslist, but they are also on there as well.

Good luck for the search.

I am still curious on how many Boberg actually produced.

I just recently bought an XR45 from Buds gun shop, but looks like they don't have one now. I compiled a list of 45s that were available, I'll check and see if any of them still are.
This store appears to have one two-tone XR45 in stock.

Thanks for taking the time to post that Mollie. I've been reading some of the threads and I saw that you started out with the 9. Just curious, did you find it lacking in any way or do you just generally prefer the higher caliber?

I'm going to go with the Bond version when it's available. I like the way they scour the threads looking for ways they can help out, like they did with your xr9 repair. They offer a lifetime warranty on their other guns, hopefully that will hold over to the Boberg. Maybe it won't apply as the design is so much more complicated than their usual fare, I guess we'll see. It's pretty interesting to watch though, for me anyway. I'm curious as to what they come up with.

OK back to my original question of "How many XR45s were produced?"

Chris, I never thought I would want to own a 45.  Several years ago when I first got interested in firearms, I tried a few different rental guns to see which ones I liked.  At the time I was used to shooting only a NAA Guardian.380 (snappy little gun!).  I tried a 45, don't remember now what it was, but I didn't like it.  Not that I couldn't have gotten used to it, but it was just more gun than I wanted to deal with.  After owning the XR9 for awhile and liking the concept, I decided to take a chance on the XR45.  I wasn't sure I would like it, given my previous experience with a 45, but as it turns out I like the XR45 a lot so far.  Not much more recoil than the XR9 (which I perceive to be the same as my Sig P938).  Maybe it's a combination of the XR45 being easy to shoot, and also my having a few more years of experience shooting.  But I do also like the XR9, even though it still has a few hiccups.  And I like having both a 9 and a 45 of the original Bobergs, after following their development on here for so long, but like you I'm also curious to see where Bond goes with the design.

Probably an Arnie or Mark Dante question, but I doubt either will weigh in on subject at this point, since the records now belong to Bond.

I have a XR45 with a serial # in the high 300s, shipped in Nov. 2014.  I did not pre-order, so mine was made/shipped after all the pre-orders were filled.  I believe they started shipping in July of 2014 (or maybe early August).  As just a WAG based on those facts, my guess is that there are less than 1000, probably closer to 500 or 600.  

Who has the highest serial # out there?  That should give us a reasonable idea of the actual number.

Mine shipped mid July, 2014 with a serial number in the 40s, so probably in the first batch out the door.

Got mine thru a retailer in Jan. of 2015, Mid 400's SN.

Got my XR45-S in December 2015 thru gun broker.com--number is high 600s.
