Watch: Arex ReX Zero 1 Compact 9mm
Kevin Felts 06.13.17
To be perfectly honest, when I saw the preview image of the video, I thought Patrick was holding a Sig. However, the Arex ReX Zero 1 looks larger than a Sig. This is the first handgun I have seen where the slide release also works as a de-cocker.

Now for the video
At first I had high hopes for the handgun, then the hopes faded.
Watching Patrick handle the handgun, it seems very “blocky.” While changing magazines, it appears he has to reposition his hand a couple of times. This is in contract to the normal magazine changes he does in other videos.
The trigger pull was off the chart, stiff operation and it has a retail price over $600. Let’s be honest, with so many good compact 9mm handguns in the $500 price range, why would the Arex Rex Zero 1 demand a premium price?
Special thank you to Patrick at TFB TV for making another great video.
