The OZ9 Combat is the new sidearm of the DOE OST.

The Department Of Energy selects the OZ9 Combat.

Department of Energy OST (Office of Secure Transportation) has selected the OZ9 Combat X as their duty sidearm of choice. The OZ9 Combat X went through rigorous testing and evaluation. Modularity, ergonomics, reliability, and optic ready design all contributed to their decision.


Per the sole source contract aware notice, “The ZEV 0Z-9 handgun not only scored the highest overall technical score among six (6) 9mm gun manufacturers, but the ZEV 0Z-9 handgun received the highest individual testing criteria scores in regards to weight, damage resistance, low light operations, pointability, ergonomics, malfunctions, recoil management, and overall impression.”

“The Combat series of OZ9 pistols were developed specifically to meet the needs of the armed professional and defensive-minded citizen” said Nick Ghilardi, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at ZEV Technologies.  “It is not an exaggeration to say OST has one of the most important jobs in the world.  As such, ZEV Technologies is both proud and honored to supply them with the best tools available to ensure mission success.”
