ZEV Technologies Releases Two New Products – Citadel Slide and PRO Barrel

ZEV Citadel slide

The Citadel slide by ZEV Technologies is the latest addition to its popular line of Glock aftermarket slides. Machined from 17-4 stainless steel billet, the Citadel is offered in Black DLC or Titanium Gray and comes pre-cut for a Trijicon RMR. Available in Gen 3, 4 and 5 for the Glock 17 and 19 models.

Unique features include angled serrations located at the front and rear of the slide to provide a positive grip by naturally moving your hand downward, whether gripping from the front or the back while manipulating the slide, performing press checks or during malfunction clearing drills.

The top of the slide is finished with micro-channels to reduce glare while aiming down the sights. The Citadel is windowless, making it perfect for duty or conceal carry.

ZEV Citadel Slide features:
• Machined from 17-4 Stainless steel billet
• Lowered ejection port to aid in ejection of brass
• Match grade, precision milled tolerances that are tighter than factory
• Improved accuracy and grouping performance upon installation
• DLC or PVD coatings offered have a Rockwell hardness rating above that of factory coatings
• RMR adapter plate included

ZEV PRO Barrel

ZEV Technologies PRO Barrels offer a smooth exterior and a streamlined hood design that incorporates the ZEV logo slashes and caliber marking. Offered in Black DLC or Burnt Bronze, threaded and non-threaded for Glock 17 (Gen 1-4) and Glock 19 (Gen 1-5) models. The PRO barrel line features extremely tight tolerances and are manufactured with pre-hardened chromium stainless steel (416R) that was originally designed for use in Match Grade rifle barrels. This material provides high tensile strength and toughness to withstand typical chamber pressures while still being highly corrosion resistant.


ZEV PRO barrel bores are some of the most precise in the industry. Every barrel is double honed (rough and finish) until a minimum surface finish of 16 RA is reached. During this process the barrels are held to a final dimension of +/- 0.003″ for consistency and accuracy.


The barrels are cut rifled and 100% inspected for groove dimensions and broach finish. Available standard and threaded with ½ x 28 suppressor threading.


ZEV PRO Barrel specs:

• 416R Rifle Barrel Quality Stainless Steel

• Match grade drop in barrel

• Final dimension of +/- 0.003? for consistency and accuracy

• SAAMI spec. Match chambers

• Rifled with a 1 in 10? twist rate

    It’s about time ZEV released a slide like this. A lot of people have been wanting a more “conservative” slide. Good on them.
