With over a decade in the parts and accessories business, Zev Technologies brings an all-new pistol design to market, showcasing its latest O.Z-9 handgun on the SHOT Show floor.
The pistol meshes the control and balance of a 1911 with striker-fire reliability in a package that grants users some modularity, according to Zev. The pistol comes chambered in 9mm and features the company’s patent-pending steel receiver. Boasting extended rails, the steel receiver delivers a solid steel frame running the entire length of the handgun. This design, Zev says, allows the locking block to be fully integrated.
