Rex Firearms expands its Rex Zero 1 pistol offerings, adding a new model to the mix — the Rex Zero 1 Tactical Compact.

Building on the Rex Zero 1 Tactical, the new Compact version offers similar features but in a smaller package. Offering a hard anodized aluminum frame, the slide boasts a nitrocarbonized steel design constructed from solid bar stock.

The Compact uses forward cocking serrations as well as a one piece cold hammer forged 1/2×28 threaded barrel and Picatinny rail. Topping off its attributes is an ambidextrous safety and magazine release, suppressor height sights and four plates for optics mounting.

The upcoming models will come in three styles. (Photo: Rex Firearms)

“The standard Rex Zero 1 Tactical pistol has been a favorite amongst consumers due to its renowned reliability and the fact that it comes from the factory ROR (Rex Optics Ready),” Rex Firearms said in a news release.

“The new Rex Zero 1 Tactical Compact offers the convenience of a smaller handgun without compromising firepower, reliability or the popular ROR features. By combining all of the benefits of the Rex Zero 1 Tactical in a smaller, compact package, Rex Firearms have once again hit the mark,” the company continued.

The pistol ships in a hard polymer case with a 15- and 17-round magazine. No word yet on pricing or availability.
