The ZEV Technologies Core Duty Rifle is the second LE and Military focused product from ZEV. The first product was the O.Z-9 Combat Pistol released just over a year ago. Right now the Core Duty Rifle is offered with a 16’’ barrel length, but they will soon add 10’’ models and also accept requests from agencies and units to suit special needs.
Here’s what Zev Tech has to say about their new rifle:
The Core Duty Rifle achieves what matters most, reliability, accuracy, and durability. Featuring Zev’s performance DNA, we’ve rounded out the package with a Wedge-lock handguard and a crisp, clean-breaking trigger. Whether on patrol or at the range, The CORE Duty rifle performs at the highest levels of service.
When we set out to design the new Duty Rifle, we knew it had to absolutely be focused on accuracy and reliability. From the 7LB weight to the enhanced Mil-Spec trigger, this rifle is packed with end-user driven features.
The Duty Rifle includes a Radian Talon Ambi safety, 16” 5.56 Chromoly barrel with 5R rifling, and a melonite QPQ finish. We’ve also included our Wedge Lock free-floating MLOK handguard and a chrome-lined BCG with manganese phosphate finish. The Enhanced Duty trigger will not disappoint either, as its action is crisp and clean-breaking.
