A few years ago ZEV Technologies shocked the world by producing their very own pistol based on Glock Gen 3 architecture called the OZ9. During that time we have seen ZEV added more pistols to its lineup. Now, ZEV is ready to introduce its latest handgun, the OZ9 V2 Elite.
The new OZ9 V2 Elite allows users to customize their handgun experience with different slides, barrel lengths, and grip sizes. The new Elite is a hybrid of Gen 3 and Gen 5 Glock architecture marrying the best of both worlds. Giving shooters a reliable and durable pistol that can perform under diverse conditions.
Below is the product description from ZEV Tech on the new OZ9 V2 Elite.
One gun, every mission” was the mantra behind the creation of the OZ9 V2 Elite. Now, with true modularity, ten different variations of a single OZ9 can be created. Three lengths of slides, two grip sizes, and, threaded and non-threaded barrel options make this possible with the V2 Compact receiver.
OZ9 V2 Elite Highlights
• ZEV Signature OZ9 V2 Slide Hybrid Gen 5/Gen 3.
• ZEV Optimized Barrel.
• ZEV PRO Flat Face Trigger.
• ZEV OZ9C or X Grip.
• ZEV OZ9 Magwell.
• ZEV OZ9 Custom Nanuk Case
Starting with the top end, we cut wider serrations at the front and rear to drive your grip further into the slide. Manipulations under any condition become easy to work regardless of the environment. We then updated the channeling at the top of the slide to deflect glare and small windows that let the dimples of the Optimized Match barrel shine through.
Internally, we’ve created a hybrid system between Gen 5 and Gen 3. This is the best of all worlds leading to more reliability, durability, and incredibly crisp trigger breaks. Don’t miss out on being the first to own the new OZ9 V2 Elite!
The new OZ9 V2 Elite is available on ZEV’s website. Price will vary depending on which configuration of the Elite you purchase. For the standard base, OZ9 will cost you $1,763. While the HyperComp version will run you a little under $2,000. For more on the new OZ9 V2 Elite and other ZEV products and firearms, click here.
