Arex offers more variety on its Rex Zero 1 pistol series, introducing the compact Rex Zero 1 CP available in black and flat dark earth.

The Rex Zero 1CP, chambered in 9mm, features a hard anodized T7075 aluminum frame made from solid bar stock with a steel locking block insert. Outfitted with full length slide rails, the gun boasts a Picatinny railed dust cover, forward cocking serrations and a loaded chamber indicator.

The Rex Zero 1 CP can be operated either cocked and locked or safely de-cocked for double action/single action operation. The external ambidextrous safety operates in either configuration.

Touting a 10-round capacity, the latest from Arex was designed to offer compliance for gun owners in restricted states. The company says the latest offering complies with strict military standards for reliability and passed extreme temperature, hostile environment and drop tests. Expected service life exceeds 30,000 rounds.

The Rex pistol is available through Arex’s distributor FIME Group and retails for $670.
