First Shots: Rost Martin RM1C Pistol

by Braxton Taylor

Rost Martin is a newcomer to the firearm world, but it’s aiming toward the hottest section of the market with its introductory RM1C, a compact, striker-fired pistol chambered in 9mm designed for concealed carry and personal defense. Built with a polymer frame complete with what the company calls its “Responsive Grip Texturing,” the Rost Martin RM1C is designed to be controllable as well as concealable. The pistol is equipped with a 4-inch barrel and is topped with a milled slide capable of accepting a micro red-dot sight. A Trijicon RMR-compatible plate ships with each pistol, and additional mounting plates will be available on the Rost Martin site. Rost Martin claims its RM1C has withstood stress testing of “up to 50,000 rounds,” and a number of holster companies have come on board to offer suitable carry setups such as ANR Design, Blackpoint Tactical, Crossbreed, DeSantis and We The People holsters.

“We know how important it is for our customers to have the right concealed carry accessories immediately available for our RM1C,” says Rost Martin CEO Chris 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.”
