The Rex Zero 1 CP shares a lot of similarities to the Sig Sauer P229. The ergonomics and control positioning are nearly identical to the P229. The slide release is also the decocker and the rear control is an ambidextrous thumb safety. This compact pistol has an aluminum frame which makes the pistol light weight enough for carry and rugged enough to depend on. It has an ambidextrous safety and a hard anodized frame. The front of the slide is serrated making it easier for racking the slide. The Rex Zero is also rated for 30,000 round service life. Overall this pistol would make for a great carry or duty pistol.
