The OZ-9 Covert combines the standard length OZ-9 receiver and slide with the Shorty grip and low profile PRO magwell to create a pistol that is easier to conceal than the OZ-9 Standard yet just as accurate.


  • 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
  • Slide features ZEV’s patented RMR cut which enables the installation of red dot sights using an RMR footprint.

Best customer Service ever

I have contacted Zev several times since purchasing this gun. The service has been great. They never mind talking to you. If I ever had an issue with anything they solved it fast. I have spoken to the manager, service representative, and tech they were so polite. I did not have any issues with their product. My issue with the gun was my fault not the quality, but they got me taken care of. I have purchased other higher end pistols and never had customer service like this. I use my oz9 for duty use and trust it with my life. Thanks Zev I will be a customer.

Just wow.

This pistol is just amazing. The competition has rested on their laurels for too long. Enter the Zev 0Z9. I’m getting to the age where pistol optics make sense due to vision problems and was looking for a good RMR host. I narrowed my search to pistols that use dedicated optical cuts rather than plates. I prefer the optic to sit low to negate the need for suppressor height sights.
<br>I’ve been shooting handguns since the 1970s and have had a Texas carry license since 1997. My first love was the 1911 platform and I carried one for many years. I’ve been carrying plastic striker fired pistols for about a decade. They will get the job done, but, always left me wanting more.
<br>This Zev really combines the best of everything. 1911 grip angle, double stack 9mm, good trigger and perfect balance. I’ve seen a lot of evolution in handgun designs over the years and am not easily wowed. However, this handgun is everything I want in a defensive weapon.
