Gun Report

Arex Rex Zero 1 Standard FDE 9mm Luger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: B
Fit, finish, and an absence of internal tool marks told us that the pistol is built to high European standards. The sights are good; we like the forward cocking serrations, the ambi safety, and the easy takedown. We believe the dual-function slide lock and decocker is an improvement over the SIG P series the pistol is modeled after. The double-action trigger was also heavier than we liked.

The Rex Zero exhibited good quality. Our pistol is a FDE frame-finish variant. The primary advantage of the Arex Rex Zero 1 is in the combination controls. Also, the Rex Zero incorporates a light rail into the frame.
With the Arex, there is no slide lock on the upper frame in SIG fashion. The decocker, arrow, is also the slide lock. With the slide locked to the rear, the decocker lever is pressed to lower the slide. Another press decocks the hammer.
The Rex Zero proved to be accurate and reliable. The Rex Zero came on target quickly. Fired offhand, the Rex Zero was accurate and fast handling.
