New For 2024: Rost Martin RM1C

posted on January 23, 2024

Rost Martin is a newcomer to the firearm world, but it's aiming toward the hottest section of the market with its introductory RM1C, a compact, striker-fired, 9 mm Luger-chambered pistol designed for concealed carry and personal defense.

Built with a polymer grip frame complete with what the company calls its "Responsive Grip Texturing," the Rost Martin RM1C is designed to be controllable as well as concealable. The pistol is equipped with a 4" barrel and is topped with a milled slide capable of accepting a micro red-dot sight. A Trijicon RMR-compatible plate ships with each pistol, and additional mounting plates are going to be available on the Rost Martin site.

Rost Martin claims its RM1C has withstood stress testing of "up to 50,000 rounds," and a number of holster companies have come on board to offer suitable carry setups. For a closer look at the Rost Martin RM1C, watch our "New For 2024" video above.
