[IWA 2022] The NEW BUL Axe Series Striker-Fired Pistols
Each of the new Axe series pistols will include a common grip module that has roughly a 1911 grip angle and beavertail, an oversized magazine release, flat triggers, extended controls, 1913 Picatinny rail on the dust cover, and memory pads built right into the grip module for easy repeat indexing. Both pistols come from the factory with a 3-1/2-pound trigger pull. According to BUL, the main focus of the Axe series lies within the slides.The Cleaver model from the Axe series features basic Glock compatible iron sights, unique forward slide serrations, and a scalloped front end. This compact model is intended for daily concealed carry duty and will have several variations of the simplified slide with iron sights. The Tomahawk is a bit more feature-rich and includes an optics-ready cut slide, weight reduction cuts, and a fluted barrel. The Tomahawk comes ready for competition right out of the box. The Cleaver shares these same features but fields a different slide design to give customers more options. BUL Armory has also made specialized magazines to enhance the features of the BUL Axe series. These magazines feature an enhanced base pad that extends to either side in order to allow for faster stripping of an expended magazine, these work with the small cutouts on the grip module’s magwell, however, stock Glock magazines can still be used with the BUL Axe series.
The Axe series will come in two sizes, Compact, and Full Size, and will feature 15 and 17-round magazine capacities respectively. Both the Tomahawk and Cleaver will be compatible with popular aftermarket and stock Glock parts and accessories. If you’re looking to pick one of these hot new striker-fired pistols up, you’ll be interested to know that BUL Armory plans on having both pistols available within the US market as early as April 2022. According to the rep at the BUL Armory booth, pricing will not be available until closer to the release date of the series. What are your thoughts on this new Glock-type offering from BUL Armory? Let us know down in the comments and stay tuned for more coverage from IWA 2022 on both TFB and TFBTV.
