OZ9 Pistol (9mm) Black Slide and Barrel
ZEV Technologies’ first complete 9mm pistol with everything built entirely from the ground up by ZEV.
The O.Z-9 was designed and created for balance. It’s one of the first things you notice when holding this pistol. Balance equates to what every shooter is looking for; a more controllable pistol with less felt recoil, less muzzle flip and faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
At the heart of the O.Z-9 is our pat. pending Steel Receiver. This solid steel frame runs the length of the entire pistol allowing the locking block to be fully integrated. The extended rails in the steel receiver help provide more than double the surface area of contact to the slide. Additional benefits include channels that clear out debris while also acting as lubricating reservoirs for high friction areas.
Having a singular component for the slide to travel along minimizes vibration and recoil energy by dispersing it along the receiver through the custom grip. A single take-down pin conveniently located at the front of the trigger guard locks the removable grip to the steel receiver.
By design, the trigger is housed in the steel receiver allowing for future grip upgrades without completely breaking down the pistol. Our improved grips have steeper angles, and forward hand position keeping the muzzle down, and pointing straighter.
The O.Z-9 is compatible with ZEV components and accepts GLOCK® mags, and will include future grip sizes, color, and texture options.

I love the gun,great gun. This is my John Wick gun, I just can not find how to get it register.
Just purchased this yesterday. I put about 200 rounds down range yesterday. I am not a competition shooter by any means, but this thing is amazing. The balance and the trigger are truly amazing. Very easy for rapid fire target acquisition. It has a high price, but more than worth the price! You will not regret it!
Worth every cent!
Excellent handgun. Kudus to Zev for creating this fine pistol. Worth every cent.
As an LEO, I carry daily. This is a daily carry gun.
Best handgun purchase I've made in decades hands down, well, maybe except for my Zev Spartan, which I'm mighty partial to.
<br>I've only been able to put 200 rounds through it in the last week since I got it, but those were a mix of standard fmj, nato and various old hollow points all mixed together in the mag. Love the grip angle!
<br>For carry, I did remove the magwell. A simple operation. I will be putting some Ameriglo Bold night sights on it, but that's the only change I'd make.
<br>I would be very interested in seeing a smaller grip made available, or a blank grip the same size I can get worked on a bit. Overall, I like the grip, but got spoiled by Zev custom work. I could do without the finger groove.
<br>Would buy again.
I bought this gun couple days ago, an amazing gun. Shoots very smooth only thing that I changed were the sights. Wasn't a fan but I believe that's all about the shooters preference. Over all amazing peice very well balanced. If you have the extra cash I recommend 100%
I have a bunch of diff 9mm glocks, and some varients like the vickers glock too. I have done a lot of custom work on them with Zev and other parts. The OZ9 is absolutely great, best I have shot in a long while. Nice tight groupings out of the box. Love the balance and flat faced trigger. Slide action is smoother than an oiled stripper's tits. Love everything about this gun, and it's gotten me laid 13 times so far. (+ - 13). But really, no complaints after a couple thousand rounds - it's a great gun.

I am a average handgun shooter. The OZ9 is extremely well balanced and easy to shoot. Also performance is 100%. This is my first ZEV product and im sure there will be many more

The OZ9 definitely has the look, is built like a tank, highly reliable, accurate and has the added benefit of the modularity. At just under $1600.00, this is a much better deal than any of the comparable options from Zev's competitors.

The oz9 is a great for whatever u need it for ,, they took great features from other pistols and made a masterpiece

I have been shooting in 3 gun competitions for approximately 2 and half years now. During research on gun parts I came across zev technologies and always heard of great reviews and i always wanted to buy parts to upgrade my glock 34 but never did. When I heard that zev tech was coming out with their own firearms I began reading/researching about it. And after purchasing and shooting the Zev OZ9 am and not disappointed at all. It has everything that I wanted to put in my glock 34. I would highly recommend this firearm to anyone who shoots or is wanting to shoot in competitions.

I was never a big Glock fan, and I am aware this is NOT a Glock. Perhaps it was inspired by the Glock, but it is much more. Exceptional balance and a modular design will make this handgun a real winner!

When you pick up the OZ9 it has good ballance and feel. It shoot flat and has low recoil.It not only handles great it looks very nice. I have only shot 300 rounds but i plan to shot a lot more soon. I have many hand guns. The ZEV OZ9 is my new go to gun. I hope to see more.

I have purchased just about every Glock aftermarket part over the past six years. Always trying to improve some aspect of the firearm, mechanics, or overall shooting experience. The Zev Technologies OZ9 is the pinnacle of design and function for all polymer striker fired guns. I was nervous making such a large investment in a new pistol, but I'm glad I did. I'm happy with every aspect of the gun. Thanks!

OZ9 is the best pistol that I have gotten to shoot and own. The quality of the OZ9 from top to bottom is just perfection. The modularity for me is what sold me, how I can go from limited, carry optic and open division with just one firearm. I used to own and use CZ’s, FNH’s and Sig p320x5 for my USPSA and Steel match competitions. The Sig P320x5 was my go-to until I got my hands on the OZ9 which took me away from the SIG. The OZ9 is truly an all in one package. The trigger is just right, and the angle of the grip is how any pistol should be a perfect natural grip angel. Grip can be a bit big for those with smaller hands so beware of that when considering to purchasing this firearm. Recoil management is spot on, the enhanced mag release is just big enough that you wont accidentally press it. Other than that, looking forward to doing more competition with OZ9.

I bought the ZEV OZ9 for a duty gun after researching and handling it. The more I shoot it, the more I love it. The balance of the metal frame insert and changeable grips provide a shooting platform that is like an STI 2011 and Glock had a very shootable and reliable baby! The fact the gun accepts Gen 3 & 4 Glock parts makes it even better and super easy to keep running or to customize for competition or to the individual user. As and LE Officer, I have an abundance of Glock mags so this was simple choice. Lastly, the grip angle is what every gun maker (polymer guns included) should strive to achieve. the grip is ergonomic and the perfect size (not like a grip job on a factory polymer gun) The OZ9 points extremely well and the ability to have multiple grip modules or to customize them is a dream come true. BUY IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT! I am ordering a second one soon.

I purchased the OZ9 due to all the features it comes with straight out of the box. From the slide being milled low enough to co-witness with ZEV's standard height sights, the front serrations, window cuts, to the stippled 1911 angled frame. I personally own/owned and shot several Glocks, M&Ps, HKs, 1911s, CZ's, Rugers, Sigs, and Beretta's due to my career. The OZ9 is a beast of its own, it has the features every shooter wants and is looking for but where it really stands out is when you're training with it. The recoil on this firearm is little to none, every detail ZEV put on this works together to deliver nothing but performance in the shooters hands. Reading reviews does not give it justice, if you're interested in an OZ9. I suggest getting your hands on one and shooting it for yourself. The feel of one in your hands would make an impression alone.

The Zev OZ9 is the best pistol out of the box that can be used in USPSA and steel Challenge than any other gun on the market. With its complete modularity you can customize the pistol for your competition needs.

Zev is a top notch company that has decided to put the quality of all their after market parts into their own platform which has produced a top notch gun.

Zev hit a homerun with the OZ9. It is well balanced, has perfect controls and points exceptionally well. The fit and finish is second to none and it arrives in a red hard case with docs presented better than my wife's Land Rover came with. I jumped on this pistol as soon as I saw it and received one of the initial run. I typically do not purchase firearms sight unseen but after reading about the features packed in this pistol, I was willing to take the chance. Now I know that was the right choice and that I got mine before Zev fully understood what they had. They could be selling this pistol for north of $2k easily. After getting mine and snapping in on it, Ive sold some other pistols it made obsolete in my safe. Great job Zev, y'all nailed it.

I’ve purchased lots of Zev parts while building my Glock 17 as well as a few other Glock hand guns. When it was announced that Zev would be releasing their own pistol, I was kind of skeptical. Although their products were outstanding quality my thoughts were hindered by the idea of, this would be just another polymer pistol. When I first saw the pistol I was very impressed by its look. As I continued to view the unveiling of the pistol I was even more impressed with its modular design. The OZ9 is the first pistol I’ve ever purchased without actually seeing or handled in person. As I waited anxiously for my FFL to receive the pistol, I pondered my decision of purchasing such a high end gun in this manner. Nevertheless, when I picked up the OZ9 my first thoughts were, wow this feels really good. I shot a few hundred rounds through the gun and I must say, this gun exceeded all my expectations. My decision was made solely on Zev Technologies commitment to quality. I’m very well impressed with my OZ9 It has vastly become my favorite pistol in my collection.

As soon as I saw the OZ9 I had to have it. I even parted with a Glock 17. When asked by the guy at the counter why I was selling my Glock, I told him why would I need it when I have an OZ9? I've put over a thousand rounds through the firearm in the month I've owned it and I still love opening the case when I get to the range, putting on my competition belt and settling the OZ9 into the holster. It gives me great pride and confidence that when the buzzer goes off I know Zev is right there, all I have to do is focus on the targets. Truly an awesome firearm both visually and functionally. Great work Zev, can't wait to see what's next!

The ZEV OZ9 is the Glock perfected. It is clear that it was engineered and designed by shooters who are looking to maximize performance. The grip angle and texturing are superior and require no aftermarket work or stippling. The modularity of the chassis system is brilliant and allows me to go from my competition set up to my cary setup in seconds. The chassis adds weight in all the right places reducing muzzle rise and felt recoil with out adding significant weight to the overall platform. The RMR cut sits lower in the slide allowing co-witness with standard height sights....no need for suppressor sights and the gun points and tracks amazingly well. The OZ9 comes packed with all the features most spend precious time and money adding to their own Glocks and with features you could never get in a Glock. It is truly an original ZEV piece and it is amazing!
