5 Star Firearms assortment of speed loaders for Bond Arms Derringers.

Shooters who enjoy modern double-action revolvers are likely to be familiar with speed loaders, which allow an entire cylinder worth of ammunition to be dropped into a revolver’s chambers with the twist of a knob.

5 Star Firearms has modified the classic twist-knob speed loader to feed the double barrels of the Bond Arms Derringer.

Crafted from 6061-billet aircraft aluminum, these smooth operating two-round loaders are assembled using high quality stainless steel pins, wire springs and precision ground bearings. Loaders are currently available for .45 Colt or .410 in a variety of colors, but additional Bond-compatible calibers are on the way.

But wouldn’t it be handy to have one speed loader that handles both .45 Colt and .410 shells? The company has developed a new square, push-button loader that will hold two .45 Colt rounds, two .410 shot shells, or one of each.

A speed-loading block, for practice at the shooting range, will be available to use with either style of loader. Starting at just $20, these loaders are a must-have item for fans of the Bond Arms Derringers.
