NRA Gun of the Week: Arex Rex Zero 1S Handgun

by
posted on January 7, 2017

A fairly new name to the American gun market, Arex of Slovenia, has brought to bear its first handgun, imported by FIME Group of Las Vegas, Nev.—the Rex Zero 1S. The double-action, full-size handgun features a unique safety/decocking mechanism, great single-action trigger pull and an accessory rail on the full-length dust cover. Aesthetics might remind you of another popular pistol, but this is no mere copycat. See more in this NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by Joe Kurtenbach.
