Yesterday I picked up the ASAI One Pro that I won on Gunbroker last week. The basic design is that of the CZ 75, but they differ a bit in appearance and overall feel. ASAI stands for Advanced Small Arms Industries. They were built in Switzerland about 15 years ago. Magnum Research imported a small number of these into the USA at the time, but only in 45ACP. Therefore, the chances of finding one sitting at your local shop are almost nonexistent, especially 15 years after the fact. Although, it uses a very common design, the gun has a rather unique look to it, as you can see. As many of you know, I love that sort of thing. From what I understand, this pistol was actually a SOCOM hopeful back in the day. I heard that some a couple different sources over the years. Whether or not it actually competed in a SOCOM pistol trial, I'm really not sure. The build quality suggests that it could be true, but the brick-like 40oz unloaded weight gives me some doubt. Whatever the case may be, what we have here is a high quality, heavy duty, all steel Swiss pistol based on a very proven design. This particular example is in great (97%) condition. I got it for $675 and it came five magazines. It came with two and then three extras (not pictured). As you can see, I also got the original box, papers, and cleaning kit, so I feel I got a good deal. The gun itself has a very lightweight trigger. Its probably the lightest DA trigger I've felt on a handgun. The One Pro features a decocker, which is different from the original CZ 75 design. The front and back strap treatment is identical to that of a original Sphinx pistols, as they were designed by the same person. Despite that similarity and history, this pistol feels much different than a Sphinx and is also much lower in cost. The grips are a hard black plastic, which offer a marginally secure grip at best. The finish is some sort of bluish gray coating that is rather smooth and somewhat slippery to the touch, but looks nice and even. The slide serrations look a bit odd, but they do give you a grippy surface to hold on to. If you couple that with the fact that the slide is slightly taller, it makes the slide on the ASAI One Pro a bit easier to rack than on a CZ 75. Of course, as with the CZ 75, the One Pro's slide rides inside the frame instead of over it. Upon picking this gun up, you immediately notice the weight. As I mentioned before, it weighs in on my digital scale at 40oz unloaded. In fact, it weighs about the same as my CZ 97B. The CZ 97B has a barrel almost an inch longer and also a longer and wider grip frame. The fact that they still weigh the same should give you an idea of how dense and solid the ASAI is. Quality-wise, this pistol is certainly no Sig P210 or even a Sphinx. However, being built in the same country, I'm sure it was compared to those other handguns back in the day. I would put the One Pro just ahead of CZ on a quality scale, which still says a great deal about this pistol. The trigger and finish are much nicer than CZ in my opinion. I find it an interesting and cool looking auto. Does anyone have a One Pro? As always, please enjoy the pics and share your thoughts. Thanks!
