    Wait so what happened to the “Prime Manufacturing Group” thing that was being setup…

    • Rob

      It was renamed Arsenal Firearms.

      • BenHurrDurr

        Arsenal Firearms came first, did some importation through the company “International Firearms Corporation,” which screwed up somewhere in their handling of importation and/or distribution, causing “breach of contract” with Arsenal, thus their seeking Prime Ammunition and Salient Arms to form the Prime Mfg Group, Arsenal is still heading up design of the Strike/Stryk pistols with Salient heading up stylistic changes.

        Arsenal Firearms was founded in 2012.

          That is a new entity

    Nice to hear about that pistol again. I was under the impression it was withdrawn from the market in some way?

    • Amplified Heat

      I believe they were transitioning away from their Italian partners; Russia has a lot of ‘issues’ when it comes to arms trade with the US, so they had initially partnered with a more established foreign manufacturing/imports company to get access to our market.

      • Minuteman

        Yet it suddenly disappeared, I wonder why?

      • Stephen Paraski

        I think Arsenal is Bulgaria.

        • Rob

          Different Arsenal.

  • I have been wanting one and like the fact that the MSRP has been dropped. I still think this is one neat design on the lock up.

  • Joe Moore

    The original was, in my opinion, an excellent pistol. Glad to see them still coming out with more designs.

    • ostiariusalpha

      A lot of people really didn’t like the quality of the trigger for what Arsenal was asking for the original pistol.

  • Joe Liberty

    how you go from Stryke 1 to Stryke B tho?

    • Alexander Nguyen

      First generation was the “Strike One” in a full size only. Second generation comes in full and compact sizes along with Salient Arms type tryhard BS, so “Stryk A” for full size and “Stryk B” for compact. This is the latter.

  • Joe Schmoe

    Just remember that this is being made by a dressed up and re-branded Salient Arms crew. Widely renowned for horrible workmanship and borderline criminal customer service. But hey, it sure is pretty!

    • Rob

      Did they all move to Germany? The guns have German proofs and it was stated in a different interview that they are made in Germany.

    Jeeze more Russian hacking!

  • BrandonAKsALot

    I have the original strike one and it instantly became my favorite pistol even over my hammered fired pistols. I normally hate striker fired guns, but the trigger is nice and it feels like a race gun out of the box. My reloads with it are fast and easy. I’d like to check one of these out, but it does make me hesitant having another company in the mix.

  • NylonBowlLady

    I want thaaaat…..

  • Amplified Heat

    Wait, did they needlessly bulk up the front of the slide area so it looks more like other pistols? The previous Strike One looked odd to many because its locking system allowed the slide to be about 1/4″ shorter, leaving it a very skinny-looking profile from the side (not helped by the fact the barrel and grip were rather long on that version). I like the new look a lot better, too, but it’s silly if there’s dead space in a carry gun for no reason but aesthetics.

    • Rob

      They did it to level the front sight with the rear. The original Strike One also had the front site raised.
