Coming Soon: Bond Arms Lever-Action AR-15 (Yes, You Read That Right)



Are you asking yourself, “Okay, but why? And how?” Here’s what Bond Arms had to say …

Why did we do this???

At Shot Show 2019, right before Covid, we were sitting around after the show and we started talking about, “If we built a Lever Action Long Gun”, what cool features would we want to add?  After discussing what things we liked about Lever Action guns, we started talking about how we could improve the features and performance.  Most Lever Action guns have a very long lever throw, so we thought it would be cool to do a Short Lever Throw that would actually be smoother than the normal long throw.  We also thought that it would be cool to utilize all the new technologies in play over the last 60 years with the AR market and make it a magazine fed system.

Little did we know that cycling a 5 round magazine was easy, but cycling a 30 round magazine with a lever gun was nearly impossible.

We spent over a year redesigning the lever system and actually came up with a very clever cam system that will aggressively extract a round out of a 30 round magazine with no problem and it allowed for a very short throw even with the longest rounds.  It was so good, we did a patent pending on this and several other things we discovered going through this design process.  Also, with all the interchangeable barrels we have with our current guns, we wanted to make it easily convertible to other calibers to add more cool factor.

As soon as you cycle the lever and pull the trigger, you know you have just felt the future of Lever Action guns.

Of course, our first thought is that this kind of self-loading black gun will probably pass muster in restrictive states like Massachusetts. But according to early testers like InRangeTV, this is an AR-15 that’s sure to delight everyone, whether they live in a free state or not. Bond Arms has been working on this new rifle for some time, and we’ve just learned that it’s due to hit stores sometime this spring (or, in business-speak, Q2). The MSRP is estimated at $1,599, and we’re excited to take one for a spin! How about you?
