3-gun, USPSA, and other competitive shooting leagues have become increasingly popular in the United States in recent years. As a result, many companies have begun to offer aftermarket components, each one claiming their product will improve performance.
However, it was not always that way. Not too long ago, competitors were left to modify their own firearms or pay large sums of money to have them custom-made. For a long time, the 1911 was one of the most popular competition guns and is still very popular in open divisions. Until a new company shook up the shooting world.
ZEV Technologies was founded in 2008 and gained popularity by bringing custom competition grade performance components to the GLOCK pistol platform. They focus on providing competition shooters with high quality components that truly improve performance on the shooting line.
With the release of the first drop-in trigger kit for GLOCK handguns, people could easily upgrade their G17 or G34 without having to pay a gunsmith. Now they can experience the benefits of a competition trigger in a stock pistol. Suddenly, the striker fired polymer pistol began to have traction as a viable competitive option.
They extended their lineup of competition parts to include lightweight strikers, barrels, titanium pin sets, and more. Now they provide the largest selection of replacement GLOCK parts and is constantly growing because of the popularity of competition GLOCK pistols that they helped create. This is a direct result of their innovative drop-in trigger system.
This company is one of the fastest growing companies in the firearms industry and they are showing no signs of slowing down. They are continuing to produce new competition parts for Glock and AR style firearms that adhere to their philosophy: any product they make has to be the best product of its type on the market.
