The O.Z-9 Covert combines the standard length O.Z-9 receiver and slide with the Shorty grip and low profile PRO magwell to create a pistol that is easier to conceal than the O.Z-9 Standard yet just as accurate.The O.Z-9 was designed and created for balance. Its one of the first things you notice when holding this pistol. Balance equates to what every shooter is looking for; a more controllable pistol with less felt recoil, less muzzle flip and faster, more accurate follow-up shots.At the heart of the O.Z-9 is our patented Steel Receiver. This solid steel frame runs the length of the entire pistol allowing the locking block to be fully integrated. The extended rails in the steel receiver help provide more than double the surface area of contact to the slide. Additional benefits include channels that clear out debris while also acting as lubricating reservoirs for high friction areas.
