Our cover gun for the spring 2019 issue of Ballistic Magazine is the never-before-seen 9mm OZ9 pistol from ZEV Technologies.

We’ve been holding onto this one since October when we got our first look at the 2018 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous. Meanwhile ZEV has been working on the pistol for the better part of three years. What went into the OZ9? Tons of expertise and attention to detail. Having tested it on the range, we know ZEV has a hit here.

Watch the video above to learn more and see it in action. Also, be sure to read our full review on the pistol. For more information, visit
