TFBTV: Arex Rex Zero 1 Pistol Mini-Documentary

In this episode of TFBTV, James is reporting from Slovenia. Slovenian gun company, Arex, invited TFBTV to tour the Arex factory, where it manufactures virtually every single component of the Rex Zero 1 in house, including the hammer-forged barrels, anodized aluminum frames, and hand assembled chassis. Arex subjects the Rex Zero 1 to rigorous quality control and proofing. James, a rabid classic German 22-series fan, as well as many other TFBTV viewers, has been under the impression that the Rex Zero 1 is a cheap imitator of the Sig 22-series. Arex invited James to test his beliefs, and James then learned that his preconceived notions about this pistol were incorrect. James takes you to the range with Arex to shoot every model of the Rex Zero 1, and then behind the scenes at the factory to see how they are made. Does this video change your opinion too? Is the Rex Zero 1 everything that the Sig is at half the price? Watch and make your own conclusions.

    so im at work now and can’t watch videos, but in roughly 8 hours time i’m going home and will watch this.

    if this is yet another james video that does not feature “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels’ theme song “Sexy Boy” at least once, i will be VERY disappointed.

    • datimes

      Be prepared for disappointment.

      • wicapiwakan

        you say that, but i just muted the audio and played Shawn Michaels’ theme in the background.

    James, what was that weird sideways stroke move thing the guy in the opening did after pulling the Arex from the holster?

    Oh, I have wanted one since I first read reviews of them for some reason.

    • That guy is like a super fast Slovenian trick shooter. He had a bunch of weird techniques for charging the gun from about any condition. One that was pretty cool was his ability to clear a failure to feed by depressing the round back into the magazine, jamming his finger into the ejection port and then removing his finger quick enough to get the slide to bring the round into the chamber. I’m not sure how practical a lot of it was, but it all looked incredibly slick.

        We need to know his name… to know how to call the resulting finger injury.

    If you weren’t wearing shorts several sizes to small you’d be able to use the pockets. I guess you packed your wife’s shorts by mistake instead? Otherwise it’s time for an intervention, Bruh.

    Some people just don’t like cargo shorts.
