Introducing the RM1C from Rost Martin

DALLAS, Texas. – Introducing the RM1C from Rost Martin – the premier offering from the newest American-made firearms manufacturing company headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

The RM1C in 9mm challenges the standard for striker-fired compact pistols and offers an innovative approach in supplying the most desirable features for the most competitive price of $459 MSRP.

Sporting high-level details usually reserved for custom pistols, the RM1C features a 4” hammer-forged barrel, aggressive front and rear slide serrations, ambidextrous mag release, and a smooth, light five-pound trigger pull with a clean break and a short reset. Non-glare top slide serrations combat eye fatigue and allow for quicker sight picture clarity. The low bore axis paired with the hammer-forged barrel provides superior accuracy out-of-the-box and improves muzzle control. The tough Tenifer® treated slide provides anti-corrosion properties and is ultra-durable, fighting against wear and tear and varying weather conditions.

The pistol comes optic-ready with a metal RMR plate for enhanced ease of rounds on target. The RM1C accepts all other popular optic footprints, and the additional metal plates for the most popular red dot sights will be available on the Rost Martin website. The RM1C also accepts all popular pistol lights on the full three-slot Picatinny rail.

Ergonomically advanced, the RM1C features the signature Rost Martin Responsive Grip Texturing, or RGT. It's a proprietary graduated laser stippling designed to respond, or "grip back," to the amount of grip pressure exerted by the shooter for an incredibly secure yet comfortable fit.

The RM1C is engineered and built for longstanding durability and reliability you can trust, backed by the Rost Martin lifetime warranty. “Our preproduction stress test and validation included testing the limits of our pistol up to 50,000 rounds, submersion in sand, water, ice, mud, and extensive drop testing without failure,” explains Rost Martin CEO Chris Toomer.

At launch, holsters will be available from several well-known manufacturers such as ANR Design, Blackpoint Tactical, Crossbreed, DeSantis, and We The People. “We know how important it is for our customers to have the right concealed carry accessories immediately available for our RM1C,” says Toomer. “We are thrilled to partner with these reputable holster companies to complement our new pistol, and we will have even more holster options available soon.”

Carrying 15+1 with a flush mag or 17+1 with the extended mag, the RM1C is the premier compact pistol in its class and represents a formidable product introduction from Rost Martin.

The Next Generation of Freedom has officially arrived.
