The other day contributed to a post about snakes. Mentioned that my wife had been bittened by a copperhead picking produce on the farm. Ordered her a bond snake slayer many years ago so she could carry on the farm. From day one, it was unusable. You couldn't just pull the trigger, you had to use a technique to make it go bang. Paid over $500. for a paperweight. We bought a ruger lcr to replace it. Great gun. Bond went into safe. Well, after the post, researched bond arms. Many complaints on the various forums about difficulty firing the gun. Knowing they had a problem, they improved their trigger and hammer with lighter springs. If you send them your old style defective gun with a check for $150., they will repair yur defective gun. Many peope said, if you called them, they will send you a new improved spring for free. I called them today with credit card in hand, didn't want anything for free. First lady took my informatio, but needed to speak to someone who was on the phone. They would call me right back. Waited 2 hours, called them back. Was told by another lady that they were discussing my case. Discussing my case? I want you to send me one new improved hammer spring, so I can fire a gun purchased from you for $500. And will pay you for said spring. I was told I would have to send them the gun with $150. What a wonderful company. Blood money. So ordered springs from a 1911 from brownells. Many peope on the forums took that route.
