DAY ONE with the REX ZERO 1!

Day one was somewhat unconventional. I carried the Rex Zero both Mexican and dropped in my strong side front pocket. I was rather busy in our shop and after about 1/2 an hour I simply forgot the Rex was on-board. Let me be clear, it is large. Not M9 large but it is large. For CCW work, you need a long term plan.

Later in the day I found that Mexican carry worked well while I was moving around and assisting customers. I have a Daltech Force® belly band on its way for day to day carry.

AREX REX ZERO 1 Acquired!

The Rex Zero 1 was purchased today at Ed’s Gun Store, Vass NC, no pick of the litter I took the first one they brought out of the 4 that came in. As soon as the gun was wiped free of the factory oil a factory magazine with 15 rounds and carried concealed. This is day 1!

First impression, the Rex is well made, the machining on the the hammer alone is sharper than most $3,000 custom 1911’s. I said it. I noticed that the magazines are well made, they do require a bit more  effort than most unless you utilize the follower tab to pull the follower down 1/8 of an inch to assist.

The trigger face is very well machined. The slide serrations are average, well defined, not as deep as I would have liked.  The fame is well made and finished. The large trigger guard has serrations on both sides and the front, a handy addition. The ambidextrous magazine release is has useful deep checkering.

The sights are very well made, the 3 dot systems will work fine. I found the slide release/decocker requires some effort now, it will smooth out I am sure, it has gotten better after a few uses.  The safety engages with a bit of effort, much less to disengage it, I like that.  The trigger pull in double action is heavy, smooth and perfect. If Beretta could produce a trigger pull like this I would still be carrying one. Peeking inside, the feed ramp is polished and well defined.

The single action trigger pull has a short take up then a crisp break. The trigger reset has a nice click after just a short distance. I did notice that the safety completely disengages the trigger, if you like to use a safety on a double action semi automatic you will like this.

The next post will address the first 50 rounds through the Rex using mixed ammo from white box bulk ammo to +p+ Federal defense and some 147g personal protection rounds. Stay tuned.
