Saw this news this morning on Facebook. BUL is introducing the AXE pistol at IWA 2019. It looks like a Glock-clone striker-fired pistol. There are supposedly “duty” and “sport” models that will be announced soon. If it uses Glock mags, I think it may prove fairly popular in Israel and Europe, but it’s going to be tricky to market it in the USA.
It is unclear whether this is designed to replace the Cherokee; there is still a robust market for DA/SA guns, but BUL has traditionally been fairly aggressive in keeping a small product line. If that is the case, it does seem possible we’ll see the usual importers selling surplus Cherokees at a bargain price… keep your eye on Gunbroker. (RIP CDI Sales!)
