As one of the most popular firearms in the world, the Glock handgun has gone the way of the M1911, with many manufacturers building on its basic design to offer new and innovative firearms. North Carolina firearm manufacturer ZRODelta (pronounced “Zero Delta”) got its start with manufacturing scope mounts and other firearms components. The company quickly moved to building complete firearms, including AR-15-type rifles and a cross-platform modular handgun. New for 2024, ZRODelta is offering the FKS-9, an affordable pistol with a lot of features for its price.

The ZRO FKS-9 is a polymer frame, striker-fired handgun chambered in 9 mm Luger. It is of “compact” size, with a 6.75” overall length, a 4” barrel and a weight of 21.5 ozs. Magazine capacity is 15 rounds. The FKS-9 is compatible with Gen3 Glock 19 components and accessories, meaning a wide aftermarket is available. The magazine release is reversible and compatible with Gen4 and later Glock magazines when mounted on the right side.

It’s in the details where ZRODelta makes the FKS-9 its own. The frame uses an 18-degree grip angle, which will feel familiar to users of the M1911. Checkering covers all sides of the grip frame. A double undercut on the trigger guard allows for a higher grip for better recoil management, while an extended beavertail at the rear of the frame protects the hand from the movement of the slide.

A textured “control ledge” surface is present on both sides of the frame where the thumbs are placed with a shooting grip. Up top, the 416 stainless steel slide has a unique profile and is available in three formats. The standard slide does not have an optics cut. The deluxe slide comes with a direct-mount RMR footprint cut, and the premium slide has a plate system that will accommodate Trijicon RMR, Shield RMSc and Vortex Viper footprint optics, with separately purchased plates.

Iron sights are a front post and rear notch that use a three-dot system. Slide finish options include the standard black nitride, or Stone Grey, Vortex Bronze, OD Green or Flat Dark Earth Cerakote.

The standard FKS-9 has an MSRP of $400 (Cerakote finish options cost $25 more), the deluxe model is $450 and the premium model is $500. For more information, visit
