ZEV Technologies Gen5 Compact PRO Magwell

Friday, August 31st, 2018

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_1

Known for its high quality, precision crafted Glock upgrade components, ZEV Technologies has once again added to its growing catalog of Gen5 offerings with the introduction of the PRO Magwell designed for the compact G19 Gen5 model. The PRO Magwell, a slimmed down version of its big brother the PRO Plus Magwell, is suitable for concealed carry with little to no added imprinting. The slightly flared base is wider than the stock opening, which is ideal for quickly inserting the magazine in the pistol during reloads, helping build proper muscle memory for improved consistency and reload time.

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_3

The ZEV Technologies PRO Magwell is a great addition for any shooter looking for an edge without the bulk flared competition style magwell. The one-piece design facilitates easy installation and utilizes a single attachment screw to securely mount to the Glock frame while retaining a low profile.

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_6

  • Designed and tested for compatibility with standard capacity factory magazines
  • One piece 6061 aluminum design
  • Type III anodized finish
  • Kit includes magwell body, mounting screw, and wrench
  • NOTE: Back straps may need to be modified if used.

    First Batch of Winkler-Zev Knives Almost Sold Out

    Saturday, June 9th, 2018

    I saw a prototype of ZEV Technology’s knife collaboration with Winkler Knives a few months ago and was impressed with the styling. They released it last week, right on the opening of Blade Show and the knife flew off the shelves.

    Last night, I spoke with Marketing VP Dave Roberts and he told me they are almost sold out of the initial batch of the knives. They are so cool, I wanted to let my readers know before these limited editions are gone.


    The 4-1/4″ blade is made from 80CrV2 steel, coated in black oxide and features a sculpted G10 curved handle, for an overall length of 8-3/8″. Additionally, the blade features thumb index file work on top of the blade. The final detail is the sheath. It’s  Winkler’s new option which incorporates a contrasting Kydex overlay.


    In this case, it’s classic Zev Black and Red. I thought it was pretty funny that some readers brought up Deadpool when it was first announced. Apparently, so did Zev Technologies. When I asked them for additional photos, they sent this one along.

    ZEV’s influence can be seen from the red and black handle, its slashes cut in the blade, to the kydex® sheath in red and black that also feature the signature ZEV slashes.

    Gerber Introduces New Limited Edition G1-002 At 2018 Blade Show

    Thursday, May 31st, 2018

    PORTLAND, OREGON (May 31st, 2018)Gerber, a leading manufacturer of knives, tools, and equipment will introduce the latest edition of the G1 Series of custom knives, the G1-002, at the 2018 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia. An industry pioneer, Gerber has been crafting world-class knives and tools for decades and first introduced the G1 Series in 2017 to showcase the craftsmanship, design, and skill that are ongoing components of the brand’s robust American manufacturing.

    Each year, Gerber plans to introduce a new addition to the G1 portfolio that will showcase elevated materials, processes, and technologies. The series serves to fuel the future development of production-caliber products, serving a large market of both professional and recreational users. As the second edition in the G1 Series, the G1-002 pays homage to a Gerber legend: the Mark II combat knife. The G1-002 is a distinct combination of premium materials and processes, buttressed by collaborations with two innovators in the knifemaking and shooting industry: Zev Technologies and Blackpoint Tactical.

    “The G1-002 is not only a re-make of the heralded Mark II, it’s an overhaul. Wielding an S60V blade, a custom-machined handle from Zev Technologies, and a multi-mount Kydex® sheath from Blackpoint Tactical, the G1-002 is both a functional tool and a collector’s item” says Karrson Koivisto, Product Manager at Gerber. “First introduced in 1966, the Mark II is recognized as the benchmark for combat knives and stands as a piece of battlefield and knifemaking history.”

    At the Portland, Oregon headquarters, Gerber engineers provided insightful design, informed engineering, precise machining, and first-class execution to bring the G1-002 to life. The team then turned to Zev Technologies – An innovator in high-quality firearm components for pistol, rifle and AR platforms – for a uniquely functional custom-machined handle with Cerakote® coating. Blackpoint Tactical was recruited to build a custom Kydex® sheath fitting of an undeniably legendary blade.

    All aspects of the G1-002 were meticulously considered, sourcing first-class materials and leveraging both the master craftsmanship of Gerber’s manufacturing facility as well as the expertise of two premium partners. Proudly designed and made in the USA, each of the 100 hand-built G1-002 knives underwent a laborious multi-stage process, accumulating dozens of hours in production, processing, and assembly. Each knife is hand assembled, double inspected, and serialized for collection.

    The ultra-premium S60V blade is the foundation of the G1-002. Gerber finished the spear-point blade with a highly polished and full fine edge, presenting a marked departure from the original Mark II’s blade. Zev Technologies applied a machining pattern inspired by their renowned stippling, typically applied to Glock pistols – resulting in a unique aesthetic and supreme grip. Blackpoint Tactical heeded the call for a custom Kydex® sheath with vertical or horizontal belt carry options and boasts click-in retention.

    Visit the Gerber booth at the 2018 Blade Show to purchase the G1-002, a limited number will be for sale on site. It will also be available for purchase directly on Gerber’s website – retail price for the G1-002 is $400.00.

    Proceeds will benefit the Special Operations Care Fund [SOC-F] which provides medical, financial, and other support to SOF members and their families in ways that are often not met through other sources.

    The G1-002 has also been nominated for a “Knife Collaboration of The Year” award at the 2018 Blade Show.
