Default Strike One, anyone

The Strike One has the lowest bore axis, supposedly because it uses the old Bergmann locking system of which I know little except that it does not tilt the barrel. The trigger is reportedly linear, like the 1911. And the frame is polymer.

What is really missing is member experience.

If you watch the cycle in slo mo you see a more or less normal muzzle flip. At least I do.

I don't believe a tenth or even a fifth of a inch difference is by itself any predictor. Just yesterday I shot my SIG, with a relatively high b.a. Same rate of fire, same size pattern. Your own grip and technique override the small difference in the measurements. As much as I'd like to shoot one, I wouldn't pay $800 on these claims.

Same for the trigger. Sounds good. But the same SIG of mine has a pivoting trigger, and it will go against a 1911 any day.

I like the look of the Strike One but would not buy one as it was made as a consumer pistol and parts and CS might be suspect . Doubt it can hold a candle to my sig p320's anyhow ..

The strike one looks some what like a another American pistol . No thank you on this one ether .

I researched it a bit. The design is apparently russian. It was done for the military, but rejected. (Why, not clear, but not necessarily because it's bad) So it is now built in Italy for the newly formed Arsenal Firearms. Built by whom (Tanfoglio?) - no idea. Any relation to Arsenal that sells AK's out of Las Vegas - anyone's guess.

Maybe an early adopter turns up here. The gun is on sale, easy to get.

It looks like a copy of the Steyr M9. I have shot the M40 and it is a nice pistol. Best 40 I have shot.

I can't wait to get one. I can almost guarantee that I will love it. I'd use it for IDPA, stock service pistol class.

It meets all my needs. I'm a big fan of low bore axis, and this gun is the lowest.

I've owned and competed with the Springfield XD-M, the Glock 34, the HK P30L, and ditched all of them for the Smith & Wesson M&P Pro Series. I see this Arsenal pistol and I see something I know I'll like.

That non-tilting barrel design equals accuracy.

I see a winner here, for me. I just dumped a FDE Sig P320 with flat Apex trigger because I didn't like its higher bore axis. I'm ready to try this Arsenal.

The Canik TP9SA could be a contender for a competition gun. Said to have a very nice trigger in the world of striker fired guns. Cost is about half the price of the Strike One. Similar to a Walther p99 but with "nicer trigger". May not have quite as low a bore axis as the Strike One, but the video seemed to illustrate pretty clearly that the difference between the Glock and Strike One bore axis did not seem to change overall muzzle flip or shot-to-shot recovery time. So, if gambling in finding a new platform in a striker fired gun for competition, it seems like there is less money at risk up front to try the Canik.

The new locking system (or reinvention of the Bergmann system) could be interesting but, I don't know if it is worth twice the cost.

One thing that I see on the Strike One that I think is s big design mistake is building the rear sight as a part of the rear slide plate. It makes replacing the rear sight a bigger problem than a traditional dovetail design. If the front sight is dovetailed in, then I gues you still have windage adjustment and the ability to put on a high visibility front sight. Just not jazzed about that rear sight though.

Really don't see anything about the strike one to warrant the price other than current demand against a sluggish supply.
