No, the spring provided with the basepads are too long to properly function in a compact sized magazine. They are only for G17/22 or G34/35 magazines.

The OZ9 Standard and Competition uses a 17 lb ISMI, while the OZ9C and OZ0cX uses a Compact 20 lb ISMI.

The Ultimate trigger kit comes with the Skeletonized striker to combine with the lighter striker springs found in our Adjustable Ultimate kit to prevent light primer strikes. The Drop-in kit will come with all the same springs and upgrades, but without the striker.

The Billet sets are manufactured in-house with Match grade tolerances, then mated together and inspected by our Quality team to insure perfect fit. Selling these components separately would create added work or potential gunsmith needs for our end user.

The Gen5 pro magwell does not work on newer Gen5 G19’s that do not have the half-moon cutout. Our ZEV Engineers are currently working on a revision to the magwell to accommodate these.

Currently the extend mag release is only for the Gen3 models. The Gen 4 variant does add texturing to help with more positive engagement of the button.

The Striker spring on all our OZ9s will be the Pro Striker spring which is roughly 4-4.5lbs. All non-Combat model OZ9s will also come with the competition 2 and 3lb strikers to help lower spring weight for those looking for a competitive edge.

Due to rifle demand, we do not offer our bronze barrels separately.

It is not a silencer or suppressor; it is a diffuser made by Surefire called the “Warden”.
