ReX Delta: The New Glock 19 Rival

ReX Delta: a new Glock 19 rival and potentially a Glock killer from the Slovenian gun manufacturer. It's a new gun for 2019, and we like it.

The new Rex Delta is the first striker fired polymer pistol from this new gun manufacturer from Slovenia. The result is possibly one of the best compact carry pistols for sale in 2019 and a Glock rival you might want to consider.


The ReX Delta is smaller, lighter and more complete than a Glock 19. Is it a better pistol? It certainly seems so at first glance. 


If we had told you this was a new entry to the custom Glock parts & accessories market, you wouldn’t be too shocked would you? That’s because this basically looks like a Glock 19 with all the aftermarket parts. All of em…



A Handgun Designed For Concealed Carry

You can manipulate that slide just about any which way thanks to the forward facing serrations, that are more like vents. The front end of the gun is a mass of angles that somehow work and could potentially help smooth your draw technique. Maybe…


It’s a stock black finish, it’s clearly a polymer handgun and the ReX Delta is built to a serious price point for a striker fired EDC. The chunky square stippling on the grip is a love it or loathe it affair, but I like it.


This is a relatively low budget handgun, too, especially in the Glock rivals sector. It undercuts the Glock significantly and comes with the finishing touches a lot of Glock parts & accessories buyers end up sourcing online.  



Hints of Mossberg and FN


You can see hints of the Mossberg MC1sc, FN 509 and the other best compact handguns on the market. That’s a good thing. ReX hasn’t tried to reinvent the wheel with the Rex Delta. Instead it has concentrated on producing a great value handgun that does everything you want, when you want, and nothing more.  


The end result is a gun that can take it to any of the best 9mm compact carry handguns for EDC that we regularly say nice things about. And there are some unique touches, too.


The trigger comes with zero travel, well a 2mm reset if were being precise. There’s a safety in the trigger, a typical striker-fired internal safety system backed up by a single action style ‘wall’. Basically this is double action safety, with single action feel. That’s a good combination.


Weight distribution has come under the microscope and a low bore axis helps the ReX shoot flat and true. That’s a huge help when it comes to your shooting technique, and it’s a thing that Glock does very well.


You don’t need to pull the trigger for the takedown procedure and there are just nice touches everywhere on this gun. The stippling looks like a custom gun finish, the slide lock and magazine release are ambidextrous and you get a small Picatinny rail for a weapons light or laser.


The capacity depends on you, as the extended magazine, a double stack magazine, offers 17+1 rounds. In a 7 inch handgun with a 4 inch barrel, that’s very serious territory indeed. 


The Rex Delta goes into shark infested waters with this gun, is the simple truth, and it will have to go head to head with the Glock 19, Sig Sauer P320 and Walther PPQ. Is it that good? It just might be…


ReX Zero and Alpha are Great Guns


ReX made its name with 9mm metal pistols, effectively the next gen CZ 75 B. The Rex Alpha and ReX Zero are great guns. They are also hammer fired, fashionable guns that offer the same level of engineering as a Dan Wesson or other great American handguns, for a fraction of the money.


The semi auto Rex Delta isn’t quite the same value proposition when you compare it directly to a Glock 19 or Sig Sauer. 


But look in depth at this gun and you get the same finishing touches you get on a Sig Sauer X-Carry, or Agency Arms Glock, in a slightly less attractive package. Do that comparison and you will buy your ReX Delta right now. 


It’s a budget custom gun, then.


Could the ReX Delta be the best concealed carry pistol?


This could become a dark horse in the race for the best concealed carry handgun in 2019. It could become the dirty little secret that gun aficionados share, or it could just become a smash hit and a sales success.


I’m thinking more the former, but I’d love to see this gun make a major dent in Glock’s sales and force the Austrian sleeping giant to respond.
