Looking at a new Gucci style Glock, and I’m interested in the new Oz9 elite and how it compares to the older zev Dragonfly guns?  Has anyone shot their new style and how does it compare to the older modified Glock frame guns?

I have an OZ9c and absolutely love it. The ability to switch grips back and forth and the way it feels in the hands is great m.  Better grip angle than a regular Glock and damn is it easy to work on and clean. Pop the slide off and the center pin out and boom easy mode enabled.

I haven't fired one of the newer models but I have built a Glock frame into a ZEV gun by adding everything to it-slide,barrel, trigger and all internals. They are quality made parts and much prefer them to other brands out there. The newer models and their modularity, seems like a great idea and I have been contemplating one myself.

Compared to a stock Glock, the OZ9 gives you get higher quality internals, a lightweight chromed striker, a chromed safety plunger, a trigger with no takeup and a crisp wall, a heavier steel chassis paired with lighter slide for better balance and recoil mitigation, a modular grip with numerous ergonomic improvements and a 1911 grip angle, a deep optic cut to Trijicon's exact max depth spec, longer rails with debris cuts, an excellent barrel with tight lockup and great accuracy, and tighter tolerances on nearly every part. You can get the V1 Duty models for under $1000 new if you shop around.

You can heavily modify a Glock frame and pair it with a complete Zev slide, but due to larger tolerances and an elastic polymer frame that weighs half of the OZ9 lower, you don't get the same balance, return to zero, and trigger feel you do with an OZ9.

Note: if you go with a V1 OZ9 and want to be able to swap between compact and standard length slides, make sure to get a model with the compact receiver (labelled at compact or X-grip). The compact receiver can accept all compact slides as well as 17 and 34 length conversion slides with Gen 5 barrels. The OZ9 V2 lineup uses compact receivers exclusively.

I vote Dragonfly.  Probably the best looking slide Zev makes.

I have the OZ9 Elite Standard (bronze threaded barrel) and a Hyper-Comp Compact (bronze barrel). The ZEV quality is outstanding. You cannot go wrong with any of their pistols or products.

Hard to go wrong with Zev OZ9. Both of these are exceptionally accurate .
