U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)-The REX alpha (REXALPHA9-01) is the next evolutionary step in the REX handgun family. It is a direct descendant of the REX zero 1 and has inherited its toughness and reliability.

Listening to the practical shooters, Arex designed and developed a pistol that excels in competitive practical shooting as well as in tactical scenarios. With the elusive and all-important “shootability” being Arex's primary goal, a steel frame was used in place of an aluminum one. A re-engineered grip results in shorter trigger reach and notably higher hand position. An undercut trigger guard and extended beavertail complete the ergonomic transformation. The long slide houses a five-inch barrel, providing a longer line of sight for faster and more accurate shots. The slide has been lightened significantly utilizing lightening cuts to accomplish faster cycling.

    1. Looks just like my CZ clone, the Tristar T-120 made by Canik in Turkey. I like my Tristar pistol and the price is much lower than the Rex Alpha. Wonder if the Rex A is a clone……..looks like it has the slim look of the CZ and the rails ride inside the frame?

    2. looks good but what is so exciting to ask over a grand for it?
      cause it is steel and not polymers and aluminum.
      they wort well enough.

    3. I bet that the poor Sloves that actually manufacture this pistol get about ten percent of what it is sold for. The article said a lot, but not a word about accuracy.

    4. Is this pistol available to the public at this time? My only concern is the price of this pistol is too expensive for whatever value it brings!

    5. Wow someone found a marketing person and turned them loose writing this press release. They made even having a trigger sound like they invented all things firearms. I was waiting for notes of burnt applewood after firing a round.
      I say its way too expensive for whatever value it brings to the table.
