11 Replies

Is there anyone who has an extra set of grips for sale?  I found someone to make carbon fiber grips for my Boberg, but he needs a set of grips for a pattern, and I don't want to leave my gun out of…Continue

Bond XR9-L
22 Replies

I had contacted Bond Arms last week to see if I could purchase an XR9-L unlock block.  I thought that would be the most likely piece to fail.  Just got a response from Bond customer service that…Continue

"I do not know well they would hold up but they sure look good. Here is a XR9 with the stock grips treated with Hydr Graphic Dip."

"Yes, they are very smooth. The fiber is well sealed."

"I will check on and post the price, and also check aboutthe Pearce style finger extension. They do fill my hand and provide a better grip than the factory grips."

"Gentlemen, It has been a lengthy project, but I finally have carbon fiber grips on both of my XR9s. The person who made them lives in the Philippines, and makes them by hand. I sent him a pair of XR9 grips, which took six weeks to get there, he…"

"Does anyone have the lighter trigger pull spring for an XR9 for sale?  I have a shorty with the light spring and an XR9-L with the heavy spring, and vastly prefer the light spring. Thanks!"

"After owning over 200 pistols and revolvers and not having this kind of trouble, I just do not expect it. I shoot Wildey's, Auto Mags, LAR Grizzly's, Raging Bulls, and 500 S&W. All these guns have large grips.  I bought the XR45…"

"Mark is a good guy and knows what is going on.  LRE just were not a problem for me. As a side note, Mark also told me that the gun beating on my thumb joint is not a problem with the gun, it is a hand problem.  Tell that to all the guys on…"

Luke Gardner replied to Vern's discussion Bond XR9-L
"My LREs seem to be at least partially magazine related. I.e.: no LREs at all with some magazines, more than a few with other mags. Nevertheless it does seem likely that, as Mark has made abundantly clear, the root cause is malformed internal fixed…"

Bob Cohee replied to Vern's discussion Bond XR9-L
"Mark You have more experience than I on the subject but all I know is what has happened to me. No LRE's with my 9mm Boberg's. The 5 or 6 LRE's that happened with my 45's out of 800 to 1000 rounds occurred when I am fairly certain…"

Mark Dante replied to Vern's discussion Bond XR9-L
"do not forget, the 9mm suffers from LRE just as the .45s do!  the LRE's are not created by grip what-so ever. we have proven this in a test environment. you will not get LRE's if the internal extractor is properly gripping the case…"

"The reason for the hump if I remember right was Arne wanted it there to absorb recoil, I think he called it the trampoline affect. The XDS45 is actually a tiny bit lighter and even with 230 grain +P, recoil is entirely controllable for me.  I…"

"Bob, We are in complete agreement. My issue with the back strap is to solve the trigger reach problem. It could be solved either by replaceable backstraps like Glock or simply replacement grips with less bulge."

Bob Cohee replied to Vern's discussion Bond XR9-L
"The pull length of the trigger is just too long for even a person with average sized hands in my opinion.  All the major gun companies are recognizing this with  replacement backstraps and the government and government agencies are…"

Major Johnson replied to Vern's discussion Bond XR9-L
"Just out of curiosity, Bob, what aspects of the 45 do you think need re-design. If It were up to me, I would vote for fixing the LRE problem, a less pronounced curve in the back strap area of the grips, and I see no reason for Boberg's…"
