U.S. Fire Arms ZiP Pistol

The U.S. Fire Arms ZiP pistol blurs the line between toy and real gun. We recently received a safety BOLO for this odd looking .22 cal. LR handgun. It uses Ruger 10/22 magazines. The ZiP can certainly be mistaken for a futuristic toy gun. I wouldn’t want to get hit with 10 CCI Stingers out of this thing, though!

The largely polymer ZiP has a 5.25″ barrel and is 7.5″ long overall. The action is single action, striker fired. Its reported weight is just under 16 ounces.

The ZiP pistol can also be configured as a short-barreled rifle with the add-on stock. They call the modification a BattleZiP Survival SBR (ATF SBR license required).

I have read the ZiP is supposed to be shipping currently. MSRP for the basic black gun is around $199. The ZiP is designed, engineered, and made in the USA.

This may be a look into innovative gun designs for new generations. Although I think it has a Lego-ish appearance, it is important to know the thing fires real bullets.

    I’m a dealer in St. Petersburg. These guns are not vaporware, they exist and I have had a few through the shop. They look and feel like toys. They however take Ruger 10/22 mags and there are up to 100 round drums for those guns. Common configuration is the 25 round banana mag. Once you get them broken in they will send 25 rounds down range in under 10 seconds. While not the largest caliber out there I wouldn’t want to face one down. These guns are cheap, under $200. Be careful out there guys!

    I want to back the Gentlman’s comment above.
    Theses little firearms need some TLC to get the
    to function as they should.
    But once you have it broken it.
    I is a very deadly handgun.
    As always, Be Safe and Carry With Honor!
