Arsenal Arms, a brand new company from Italy introduces their Strike pistol system — it’s unlike conventional semi-autopistols in which the barrel tilts to unlock the action during recoil, the Strike features an in-line barrel that remains completely horizontal as the slide moves. Rather than a locking lug or ramped surface, the Strike uses a separate yoke-shaped piece that fits between the forward shoulder of the breech block and an integral ring around the body of the barrel. During recoil, the yoke drops straight down and the barrel moves straight back. This unique patented feature not only allows the Strike to cycle faster than conventional pistols, but it also reduces the height of the slide significantly, placing the bore much lower in the hand for enhanced recoil control.

Available with either a polymer or Ergal light alloy frame, the Strike boasts many other unique features, including a truly ambidextrous push-button magazine release. It is available in 9x19mm Parabellum, 9×21, .357 SIG, and .40 S&W calibers and is sure to attract lots of attention.
