ZEV Technologies first complete pistol, built entirely from the ground up, is now available in a compact model.

All the same great features as the standard sized O.Z-9, the compact blurs the line between personal defense, concealed carry and a duty pistol. The slimmed-down PRO magwell enhances grip comfort while minimizing printing while carrying concealed.


  • 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.
  • Additional grip sizes and colors, different length conversion slides, and multiple sized magwells are available to facilitate further customization by end-users. The O.Z-9C is compatible with ZEV components and accepts GLOCK® mags.
  • Slide features ZEV’s patented RMR cut which enables the installation of red dot sights using an RMR footprint.
  • NOTE: Compact O.Z-9 specific parts (slide, barrel, grip) are not compatible nor interchangeable with the Standard O.Z-9.

Outstanding Pistol

Just purchased a new OZ9. Fit, finish and machine work is absolutely amazing. Ergonomics are excellent and accuracy has been stellar. Reliability should be increased over a standard Glock and the new steel frame insert and elongated rails are amazing. Looking forward to saving up for a new OZ model soon.


This is an exceptional pistol and my new EDC. The price point is legitimate due to the high level of craftsmanship. Packaging is meticulous and the case can easily be used for travel. The pistol feels extremely well balanced when you first take it out of the box ~ slightly heavy on the front end. The modular design is well engineered and easy to break down. Shooting the pistol was a real pleasure. Ergonomic grip is superb, excellent texture and the index points are a plus. Trigger control and trigger cycle are first-rate. Muzzle flip was virtually nonexistent. Shot 1000 rounds in two settings and had zero malfunctions. I highly recommend the OZ9c!

Fantastic Gun - Everything I expected!!! I have to recommend !!

I just fired my Zev OZ9C for the first time - this gun is amazing. The more I shot, the more I wanted to shoot. Smoooooth. I shot tight groups - on par with my CZ Shad__ 2. I am very pleased with the OZ9C and highly recommend it. Looks like this is going to be my new favorite over my HK V_9, Shadow 2 & Glk 19 Gen 5. Compared to what I spent on upgrading parts on my G19 - this gun is by far way better than what I built. I spent a few extra bucks on this OZ9C and I am VERY glad that I did. Kinda makes everything else I shoot less fun.

Excellent quality and perfect machining!

I recently purchased this Zev OZ9C and I couldn't be happier. I have roughly 500 rounds of 124 gr target ammo through it and it has performed flawlessly. I have a Trijicon SRO and a Streamlight TLR-8 mounted to it and it handles the recoil amazingly. It's very accurate at 25 yards even with a 4" barrel! I can change the grip on it in a matter of a minute. The trigger is so smooth and crisp already and taking it down to clean is literally a breeze! I'm certain I'll be keeping this one for a very long time. I can't say enough good things about it!!
