Great gun

Very well put together gun. Stylish yet rugged and built on a solid steel platform. Easy to clean and take apart as well

Best Of The AR World

I am an avid shooter and compete on a regular basis, I have been following ZEV for a while and finally dropped the cash on this AR. The best way to describe this weapon is to explain it as anyone could understand. This is the Ferrari of ARs, the fit and finish is amazing. No clanking sounds from a loose fitted receiver, and the weight of it is surprising light. The sticker shock went away after a few trips to the range and feeling the difference in quality that ZEV has produced, I am now a fan of ZEV products and will continue to add to my collection. ZEV may not be a household name....but will be part of my household from now on. Thanks guys for caring about quality.

This AR is at the top of the food chain as for the milling and fitment work, I own 2 ZEV firearms and they both are top notch. I have put over 1000 rounds through mine and performs amazingly, its a true pleasure to shoot. Thanks ZEV for the quality builds.
