SHOT Show 2016 – The Arex REX zero 1S semiautomatic pistol arrives to the US market, imported by the Las Vegas based FIME Group LLC
The Slovenian made Arex REX zero 1S semiautomatic pistol is now available to American shooters, imported in the US by FIME Group LLC (www.fimegroup.com).
The FIME Group (Firearms Importer Manufacturer Exporter), was established in Las Vegas back in 2011, with the idea of connecting with other manufacturers to create relationships to benefit and strengthen the firearms industry.
In the past, FIME Group has had close partnership with Izhmash Factory of Russia (now Kalashnikov Concern), but due to current political situation, and sanctions imposed by the State Department on Kalashnikov Concern, FIME Group is no longer affiliated with this company.
Zastava Arms of Serbia instead is one of FIME Group current key partners, and their lines of Bolt Action rifles and Pistols are available through the FIME Group.

It can be operated either “cocked & locked” or safely de-cocked for DA/SA operation. The slide-stop also serves as the de-cocker and safety and magazine release are ambidextrous.
The frame is hard anodized T7075 aluminum made from solid bar stock with steel locking block insert, while the slide is from nitrocarburized steel made from solid bar stock. The barrel is made out of a one piece cold hammer forged solid bar steel.
Other features of the Arex REX zero 1S semiautomatic pistol include forward cocking serrations, loaded chamber indicator, full length slide rails, picatinny railed dust cover, large trigger guard for use with gloves, high profile white dot steel sights accepting SIG pattern replacement sights.
