Sig Legion vs. Slovenian “Sig” – Torture Test – FIGHT!

    Its all too often common that the clones of various weapon systems (outside the original AR-15 and AK-47) are sub-standard to their inspiration. This is due to various reasons, the primary one being cost-cutting. However, there are times that the clone is not just a cheap duplicate, but an improvement over the base design. Surprisingly, the “better” weapon is the Rex Zero, a Sig Sauer inspired weapon manufactured in Slovenia.

    Specifically, the weapon bests the Sig Sauer Legion P226 in a torture test by Tim at the Military Arms Channel. Using these two weapons as a baseline, Tim has created a new “torture” test procedure the he plans on following and that many may find a realistic representation of the conditions that most weapons would be expected to follow, not the obscene over-the-top “tests” that many have shown weapons going through (with the exception of the “Mud Tests” by InRange TV – mud can get all over weapons).

    Tests consists of the following:

    1. Dunk in water
      1. Fire 10 rounds
    2. Press into sand flush (note – no burial), flip and press into sand flush.
      1. Fire 10 rounds.
    3. Press into dirt, flip and press into it again.
      1. Fire 10 rounds.
    4. Press into mud, flip and press into it again.
      1. Fire 10 rounds.

    The Sig only made it to the dirt portion before having slide sluggishness which caused both failures to chamber and failures to eject. The Rex? Made it through without issue. Color me surprised.

    Enjoy the test.
