DefenseReview (DR) recently saw some photos of the Cobalt (blue) Cerakote variant of the Fabryka Broni (FB) VIS-100 M1 high-capacity 9mm Parabellum/9x19mm pistol, and it really caught our attention. Normally we like our pistols like a lot of people like their coffee, or like the Kardashian sisters like their men. Black. However, in this particularly case, the Cobalt Cerakoted version looks pretty cool, and the pistol as a whole is visually appealing.

Anyway, once we were inititially intrigued by the color, we started looking at the pistol’s features and specs, and they look pretty solid. Basically, the VIS-100 M1 pistol is an upgraded commercial version of the Polish military’s VIS-100 pistol.

The following comes to us from the Arms of America Military Imports web page on it:

The VIS 100 M1 is a semi-automatic pistol chambered in 9mm and made in Poland by Fabryka Broni. This is a Civilian legal full-sized pistol based on standard issue Military VIS 100 issued to the Polish armed forces and Police. Modern design enables it to be carried with a chambered round in complete safety, accelerating firearm response to the scenario.

Pistol [is] an ergonomically shaped, reliable and fast-pointing pistol featuring high-contrast day-and-night sights and high-capacity magazine and is also fully ambidextrous. The Tenifer metal coating assures maximum protection of the metal parts against abrasion and corrosion – as well as attractive looks. The frame features a MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) compatible rail at the dust-cover, enabling attaching tactical lights or laser sighting equipment.


Height: 136mm without a magazine – 142 mm with a magazine
Length: 197mm
Width: 32mm
Barrel Length: 110mm
Pistol weight without magazine: 695g
Empty magazine weight: 90g
Trigger Force: SA / DA – 5.6lbf / 11.24lbf”

Now, Defense Review has absolutely no idea how this pistol actually shoots/performs. It just looks interesting to us, and Poland’s known for making interesting and high-quality combat/tactical firearms, so we thought we’d do a quick heads-up piece on it.
