    Ok,, the name is horrible. But I keep reading good things about it. What are your experiences??? Would you it for HD?

    IMG_0055.JPG IMG_0054.JPG I have one, get the popcorn ready! I like mine, it is well made, has a Sig like trigger, very much a Sig copy. I like that the decocker and slide release are same but the grip is slightly larger, front to back than the Sig. The grips are kinda cheap and being a lighter gun, it doesnt feel as solid as a Sig. Overall, similar gun to the Sig, mags are cheaper. I wouldnt buy one over a Sig but certainly to add to it. My .02 :)

    I just realized how much it looks like a Sig P320.

    Next time I get the bug to get a steel Sig I may get this instead.

    Not something I would buy, but I haven't heard anything negative about it.

    I do look forward to handling one. I haven't seen any yet.

    Bought myself one from Bud's about two weeks ago. Here's a little range report I wrote up on it....

    I took my Rex Zero 1 S out to the range for the first time this past Sunday. The weather was cold, damp and dreary but the way this pistol shot warned me right up! The shot through the X is the result of my VERY FIRST pull of the trigger! I almost called it a day after that. The other pic is the end result of the first two 17 round mags. I did flinch a bit in anticipation of the recoil on that one round that ended up outside of the black. All shots on paper were from 7yds. The rest of the box of ammo was used up dinging hanging steel plates.
    The grips aren't the prettiest (and to be honest here they do feel kinda cheap) but they get the job done and done well.... for me at least. Hogue does make some really nice G10 grips for the Rex.... I'm not sure if I'll go that route or not. Otherwise the fit and finish is top notch.
    The SA trigger felt good and was to my liking. I did not fire any shots in DA so I have no feedback on it.
    The pistol fit my hand well and, much like my CZ's, pointed very naturally.
    I'm looking forward to getting back to the range with her to do some more shooting.
    Almost forgot to mention that I was using 115gr RN Freedom Munitions ammo today.

    I have a Arex and it has been great but I did buy a Grand Power P11 and it was a failure from round 2. The company did same ad above, refused to pay for shipping for repair. My Grand Power K100 had been great but not so much the compact. The problem of course would be greater if this was your only or one of a few guns. No warranty or bad customer service is no good for any gun, especially one thats rare.

    I took the ReX back to the range yesterday for some additional trigger time. Once again I was very happy but I do need to work on not anticipating the recoil so I quit pushing shots out of the black. This is shot from 7yds again and is 70 rounds on target. I did do some DA shooting this time.... that DA pull is HEAVY for sure! The DA pull is the only thing about this gun I don't like. Perhaps it will lighten up a bit with use.

    It is a relatively heavy double action pull for sure on the Arex.

    Sounds like another no support firearm.
    I had problems with a Grand Power and the customer support was horrible.

    I'm waiting for the G10 grips to get back in stock. Loving it so far.
