In the realm of firearm accessories, Zev Technologies has consistently stood as a symbol of innovation and excellence. Their latest offering, the limited edition Echo slide for the OZ9 and Gen 3 Glock, is no exception. Marrying timeless aesthetics with cutting-edge features, the Zev Echo Slide emerges as a remarkable addition to the firearms landscape, promising enhanced performance and style.

The Zev Echo Slide commands attention with its harmonious blend of classic lines and modern functionality. As a limited edition piece, it provides uniqueness and represents the culmination of Zev’s dedication to craftsmanship. This slide effortlessly bridges the gap between the traditional and the contemporary, bridging the gap between form and function.

Manufactured within Zev’s state-of-the-art facility, the Echo Slide embodies precision engineering at its finest. Crafted from a single billet of 17-4 stainless steel, it showcases Zev’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of manufacturing excellence. The meticulous machining process results in tighter tolerances compared to factory slides, ensuring an enhanced barrel lockup that translates to improved accuracy and overall performance.

The Echo Slide raises the bar with its array of distinctive features. Front and rear slide serrations facilitate seamless manipulation, whether in high-stress situations or routine handling. Window cuts not only contribute to the slide’s aesthetics but also reduce weight for a balanced feel. Perhaps most intriguingly, the Echo Slide is optics ready, allowing shooters to effortlessly integrate their preferred optic systems for quicker target acquisition and enhanced accuracy.

Below, is the product description for the Echo slide from Zev Tech.

Product Description

With a large window on top and the three windows per side the weight is cut significantly, and the recoil impulse is reduced. The deep serrations at both the front and rear of the slide create a more aggressive grip to ensure a solid purchase during manipulations. The Echo slide provides durability and accuracy when it matters most.

Manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility from a single billet of 17-4 stainless steel to tighter tolerances than factory slides for increased consistency in barrel lockup for improved accuracy and performance.

All ZEV slides have our patented optic cut that features threaded mounting posts machined into the slide. The increased surface area of these posts allows added engagement with the threads of the mounting screws while providing a more stable and secure optic mounting platform. With the deepest optic cut in the industry, the red dot sight sits low in the slide, allowing co-witness with standard height sights.

ZEV slides weigh less than factory slides, therefore reduce reciprocating weight, which reduces fatigue and allows for faster shot follow-up placement.
